Empty Promises, Toxic Culture
Administrator (Former Employee) – California – March 4, 2019
While their marketing is flashy, it’s full of empty promises. I found the opposite to be true to the party line, as the bottom line is far more important than fairly paying teachers, or effectively teaching students. Fusion uses high-paid corporate coaches to gaslight administrators into thinking everything is their fault, meanwhile they’re breaking their backs to continually increase student enrollment, and even before an enrollment target is reached, it’s moved higher and out of reach. Regional management in California is especially terrible, as they seem supportive to your face, and yet behind your back, work to undermine you and take credit for your work, so that they themselves can climb the corporate ladder. I liked working for the Head of School at my campus, but he left when he saw the writing on the wall. The culture on the surface is all love and fun, but this is a false front masking a toxic culture that exploits workers.
