No longer a fun place to work
Principal Engineer (Current Employee) –  Nashua, NHApril 5, 2018
This used to be a good place to work, lots of interesting projects, great people to work with. Over the last 3 years it has gone downhill and doesn't seem to want to recover. Bonuses which are supposed to be part of your compensation haven't been paid out in several years, raises have been poor.
Pros
Decent Benefits, decent pay if you are willing to fight for it
Cons
Poor upper management, lack of transparency

Just move on
Employee (Former Employee) –  Nashua, NHFebruary 27, 2018
Just move on from this company. Employee turn over high including the CEOs. Benefits good but don't be fooled. New products are slow to market. My guess is that company will be bought up soon or folded.

Lots of changes but mostly positive experience

Company is clearly undergoing a lot of changes which is exciting. Lots of changes but mostly a positive experience. Depending on your type of personality - this company not for everyone.

Would not recommend working here
GLOBAL SALES OPERATIONS (Former Employee) –  Nashua, NHJanuary 28, 2018
Skillsoft used to be a great company to work for. Over the past 2 years it has gone through a tremendous amount of change. They are in the process of rebranding and while the CEO is sincerely trying to make it a better place, the middle management is sub-par at best. Many people have left due to management.
