An organization that was turned upside down due to the economy
Service Center Consultant (Former Employee) – Alexandria, VA – May 18, 2014
A wonderful place to work in the beginning of my 14 years of service. We were known as the organization that cared about the success of all learners. When 9/11 took place we lost a majority of our grants, and was forced to act as a for profit organization. With this happening we lost the drive to stay focus on the mission, it became more of just trying to stay afloat. I learned many job skills in 14 years. I entered the doors as a phone consultant and left as an event planner, a knowledge base manager, a coordinator, a project assistant and manager. I learned how to develop the skills of determination and not giving up on the task or dream at hand. My management was always supportive during this hard time, and was always able to give wonderful feedback. My co-workers became like family. The hardest part of the job was coping with the changes of becoming a for profit organization. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to help others across the world.
Being able to help others, healthcare
Having to spend more time up selling and cross selling products
