Terrible Management
Sales (Current Employee) –  Alpharetta, GAFebruary 26, 2018
No job security, no respect for employees as human beings, and highly unqualified managers that work their way up unfairly. Petty work environment, constant rumors, extreme micromanagement, and no credit for going above and beyond. Dread going to work everyday, and fear for loss of job at least once a week.
Pros
Benefits and PTO
Cons
Environment & Management

Excellent work enviroment
National Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAFebruary 20, 2018
Promethean, Inc. was surely ahead of it's time. Great people in a multicultural setting, make it to be a very exciting place to wok and learn. We were high tech and visually stunning office, which made a joy to see the expression on clients faces. The minute they walked in, they knew we were first class professional organization. Promethean's office was very hands on interactive as well as user friendly.
Pros
Very Strong Program
Cons
Not enough hours in a day to complete your run

Sr. Staff Accountant (Current Employee) –  Alpharetta, GANovember 17, 2017
It is good place to work if you don't want career advance.
But good think, I need to say, no micro managing, I never missed my deadline, and nobody ever bother me about my work!

Still under change - lots of insecurity, prejudice, lack of direction,
Account Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  Alpharetta, GAJuly 23, 2017
Was acquired 2016 ... terrible internal changes, poor leadership and management (kept unqualified mgr when closed dept) and person in HR who is awful at her job. Outsourcing jobs, no concern for customer service or quality. They did hired a new CEO which may help, still need to let go of a couple of managers who are not qualified or not doing well. Supposedly, moving headquarters to Seattle - inconsistent policies across different departments. Some people work from home while others can't (even if the work is possible to do remote), preferential treatment for friends, .... felt like taking advantage of workers - more work, less pay, less concern with service or quality.

Positive is some good people to work with, casual wear jeans/shorts, decent medical benefits and PTO ... just insecurity - need better direction, more pay and consistency across groups.
Pros
Some lunches, Pto, co-workers, wear jeans/shorts
Cons
Some managers/HR need to be replaced - inconsistency and insecure future.

Poor Management
Solution Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Alpharetta, GAApril 24, 2017
Promethean only cares about the sale not the employee or client we are selling products to. They also did not understand the school selling cycle, expected miracles in less than 1 yr. employment
Pros
nothing
Cons
everything wrong with the company

Great place to have a career
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  New York, NYApril 20, 2017
My manager really cares. She goes to bat for you. She grew a territory and now manages it. They promote within.
My colleagues are helpful and great. Everyone is happy, we are a true team and family.
I cannot wait to go to work everyday and make a difference.
No micro management, just caring helpful people.
Pros
PTO 20 days to start
Cons
disgruntle employees that write negative comments because they are lazy.

Bad leadership, bad direction, bad manager
Sales (Current Employee) –  Alpharetta, GAJanuary 31, 2017
Check out Glassdoor if you want to see the truth about this company. It used to have a good culture over all; but is totally going down. Upper management and manager in bed with each other (figure of speech)... hiring and keeping young people over seasoned employees; lay offs all year (most recent Jan) not based on seniority or sales record, closed our state side warehouse, outsourcing jobs overseas, constantly changing way they do business ... do not support employee input, extreme micro-managing, never enough attitude ... sales commission is a mess (way underpaid for the amount of sales -- you get about 1% of your sales), take advantage of people. Too much unrest, insecurity and lack of direction, and poor leadership.
Pros
Casual dress, flexibility, PTO and Benefits
Cons
No money, no respect, making decisions at the cost of quality, service and employees.

Great company
Senior Area Manager (Former Employee) –  San Francisco Bay Area, CAJuly 28, 2016
Promethean was the best company I worked for - - until it went public. Then everything changed and sales and the company itself plummeted. Things that were working and generating revenue were thrown overboard. The company still exists, bought by Net Dragon, a Chinese company for 25% of Promethean's IPO price. Sad.
Pros
Super people
Cons
Out of touch management

Energetic place to work
Marketing Manager (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJuly 23, 2016
The work day could be long at times, but the team spirit meant that others would pitch in and help whenever possible. There always seemed to be an opportunity to learn something new about areas of the business. Our office was relatively small, which meant working with a variety of people on a project was always a possibility. Colleagues become friends. Work usually doesn't't feel like work.
Pros
A passion for the company mission
Cons
Communication could be better

A great place to work!
Content Developer (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLJune 1, 2016
I learned a great deal in the Adobe Creative Cloud as well as using their proprietary software, Classflow. The management is superb! They have an open door policy and are transparent in all their transactions. They are willing to accommodate the employees needs and will go above and beyond what is expected of them.

Great place to work!
Business Manager (Current Employee) –  Marlborough, MAJanuary 19, 2015
Everyone from the owner down to the payroll intern are all great people who are accommodating, understanding and truly make for a great working environment. The relaxed environment allows for people to just be themselves, the relaxed dress code is a very nice change from the standard suit and tie world and the "google style" makes office life much easier.
