Teacher's Assistant in Irvine, CA

The company has a great working environment. Even after being moved to classes at home and online on Zoom, the managers still made me feel like we were together in the classroom.
Web Development Substitute Teaching Assistant in Sacramento, CA
on August 20, 2021
I was hired on while the bootcamp was still (and will, possibly, forever be) remote so the hiring process and signing paperwork and training was all online. My manager is very supportive, wants me to succeed. The schedule is very flexible, to the point there's no set schedule or priority. It's a first-come-first-serve schedule. Advancement opportunities are fair. Work hard as a sub and if they're looking for a primary TA, they look to advance someone within the current sub pool first.As a sub, you're always in their "sub pool", there's no minimum work hours in order to stay on. It's either your active or inactive, and it's as simple as telling your manager or not interacting on Slack when a subbing opportunity comes up.There's no healthcare or 401k (since you're part-time) but as an employee you have access to a large network of similarly hired people, including industry professionals. It's prime real estate to find job opportunities. If there's ever a change in curriculum, they make sure to train you on it (on the new tech) before it's added officially.Hiring process was in 3 steps.1. Phone call with 2U recruiter to assess interest, answer any questions, talk about the job opportunity. This is where you'll find out whether you'll move on to the next step. And tell you how to prepare for the next step.2a. Tech assessment, you have three days to complete. Once started, 15mins to complete.2b. Another follow-up phone call to see whether you passed to the next stage and to prepare you.3a. Mock subbing activity. Where you're the sub and a current experienced TA is the student and you're supposed to coach them through a problem. Some critiques afterward.3b. Follow-up phone call from recruiter to see how I did and give me my results. And then I don't remember if it was during 3b or another later phone call that I was offered the position.
SVP, Finance in Lanham, MD

I built my entire career at 2U and couldn't recommend it more strongly to someone looking for their next opportunity. The work is interesting and fast paced. And you know that what you do will have a positive impact on hundreds of thousands of students trying to improve their lives.

Management and top leadership is supportive. Lots of room for growth within your own department or other departments. The company is inclusive as well.

Management is the worst part of this company. It is certainly easier to reward those people we enjoy, but this is not fair. At 2U, there is favoritism bias in hiring and promotions. Employees who are liked or familiar get opportunities for growth over employees that are veteran or higher performing. Do not be surprised when you realize 2U leadership is a huge inner circle and not very diverse AT ALL. What's more, there is lack of support for remote workers. For instance, since the quarantine, 2U has been saving money with people using their at home offices. Those savings have not been used to support remote workers struggling to maintain normalcy. 2U could have helped by providing wifi assistance, food assistance, and home office assistance (some people felt so unsupported, they even opted to take chairs from the headquarters). Personally, I was no longer able to continue working since wifi technicians were not entering homes and I could not afford using my phone as a local hotspot to work. This lack of support falls on the shoulders of my former manager, the director, and HR.The best part was the fun that spread from the CEO. He took pleasure in rewarding outstanding workers (Grammy award show style with a stage and trophies), celebrating holidays (like Halloween with festivals), having mandatory dance parties during work (not really mandatory but strongly encouraged), and amazing company meetings. It was also great to get school holidays off, since 2U is an EdTech company serving universities. What's more, 2U is the only company I experienced that had a formal celebration for Juneteenth where I learned a lot. At large, the company is awesome and you can tell they want you to enjoy yourself. If you join, just hope your lucky stars you get a proper manager and director.
