Great Work Environment
Opportunity Development Specialist (Current Employee) –  Harrisonburg, VAJuly 9, 2018
This place has a GREAT work environment. If you have your day planned out you can follow it to a T without interruption. Management is great and is always attentive to your well being. I have learned a lot with Rosetta Stone's options in professional development as well as mentorship opportunities.

Online Marketing (Former Employee) –  Arlington, VAJuly 2, 2018
Rosetta Stone is an excellent brand name and I considered it an honor to get a position there. Many co-workers were nice and we had several post work events that were a lot of fun. There were some infrastructure issues that made progress and efforts slow. Middle managers could be more open to feedback and suggestions.
Pros
Free soft drinks
Cons
Long hours

Fraud & Security , Collections Agent (Former Employee) –  Harrisonburg, VAMay 25, 2018
This was a great company before they went public. Had you sitting on the edge of your chair everyday, wondering if you would be the next group of people being laid off.
Pros
Outside activities, being able to make your decisions based on your knowledge of what the customer needs.
Cons
Not knowing if you will be there from one day to the next

Sr. Sales and Marketing Recruiter (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCMay 18, 2018
Great brand with great talent but not the right culture at the time. The culture could have changed but there was a fear factor working for them. Good benefits and compensation though.

Amazing opportunity to learn sales
SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 8, 2018
As a sales associate for Rosetta Stone, I was single-handedly responsible for approaching customers and familiarizing them with the Rosetta Stone language learning software. My responsibilities included opening/closing the kiosk, conducting daily sales, demonstrating the language learning software, and managing inventory and stock lists. I quickly rose to being the third leading sales representative in the nation. Company closed all of its national kiosk sales locations and went strictly online.
Pros
Fantastic salary plus commission
Cons
company closed kiosks

Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAMarch 8, 2018
As a sales associate it is rare that you get an opportunity to sell high market items and succeed. I had a great time selling my products and excelled greatly. i believe you should get paid more per hour and more commission

Worked with fantastic people and had a phenomenal corporate office
Area Manager (Former Employee) –  Toledo, OHMarch 5, 2018
Calling each store manager every morning to ensure store opened successfully and obtain daily sales figures. Learned what an amazing company this was to work for and wold have stayed had the economy not forced several locations to close. Culture was very diverse and peaceful as well as the company as a whole treated everyone with respect. Hardest part of the job was leaving it due to closures and the most enjoyable was working daily with wonderful people.
Pros
Fantastic company with great values
Cons
Having to close locations

Senior ios Developer (Former Employee) –  Boulder, COJanuary 21, 2018
Rosetta Stone is run by professionals. They have their processes down. From the product owner to the scrum master to the manager to the technical lead, they are good people. It was a pleasure to work with and for Rosetta Stone.
Cons
They farm some of their development offshore

It's ok
Online English coach, grader, material creator (Current Employee) –  RemoteJanuary 12, 2018
It's ok. You make your own schedule but your clients are often arrogant and don't study at all. The other employees are nice and management is really helpful. The hardest part of the job is getting paid very little to put up with such big attitudes. The most enjoyable part is when you meet some very interesting people.
Pros
You make your own schedule
Cons
No healthcare

Faszinierende Technik
Sprachlehrerin (Current Employee) –  King County, WANovember 29, 2017
Mithilfe ausgeklügelter Technik gelingt es Rosetta Stone, Menschen die sich an verschiedenen Orten des Globus aufhalten zu ermöglichen, eine sprachliche Verbindung miteinander aufzubauen. Man hat sich nie getroffen, und plötzlich tauscht man sich über Hobbies oder das Lieblingsessen aus - in einer neuen Sprache! Als Coach erlebe ich das immer wieder wie ein kleines Wunder, wenn Leute aus Melbourne, Rio und Dortmund miteinander sprechen und ich ihnen dabei helfe.
Pros
Arbeitgeberanteil in Rentenkasse, bezahlte Krankheitstage
Cons
Kein Kontakt zu wirklichen Menschen, weil sich alles im virtuellen Raum abspielt.

Great Place to Learn ---including a language
Manager (Current Employee) –  Arlington, VAOctober 26, 2017
If you're new to the world of marketing, Rosetta Stone is a great place to hone your skills, learn about new medias, works with talented team-mates and create some work you'll be proud of...

However, there are a few cons, this is a lanugage learning company and there are several competitors including; duo lingo, babel fish, google translate to name a few. This means, market share is low and turnover is inevitable.

Try it out, see what you learn.
Pros
Managers who care
Cons
Limited budgets

Company in Constant Change
Sales (Current Employee) –  Rosslyn, VAJuly 30, 2017
Since arriving at the company many years ago, Rosetta Stone has consistently struggled with directing its sales efforts. Three CEOs, and multiple sales managers later, the sales team's directly feel the stress of poor communication and consequent chaos and change.
Pros
Great work life balance
Cons
Poor direction

Lexia--Good program, poor management
PLF (Former Employee) –  USMay 16, 2017
I worked for Lexia as a PLF. The position and the expectations are reasonable. However, the company is poorly managed and there is a lack of communication between PLFs and managers. Much of this is because everyone is not meant to be a manager (poor communication, unclear expectations/intentions). The company also seems to play favorites where expectations, in terms of presentation and style, for some PLFs are greater than others. You may shadow other PLFs and see that they present in the same way that you do or worst, but then you are critiqued more harshly. Favoritism and lack of clear expectations is bad for morale and can make the work inconsistent.

The running theme (code for excuse) is that the company is facing growing pains. Of course, there are challenges as a company grows but through better planning and communication much of the foolishness could be avoided. I would NOT recommend working for this company in the immediate future.
