Return to Growth
The LBO put this company behind the 8 ball. Once the default or restructure settles out, it will be a good place to work. This may take a couple of years to resolve but I enjoyed my time there with the people I worked with.

Work life balnce
You do your 40 hours, overtime is very rare. Employees voices are valued. Everyone contributes regardless of role or hierarchy. Emphasis put on work / life balance. Flexible scheduling. Remote 2 days a week.
Pros
Free Soda/Snacks
Cons
Office is old and ugly

Does NOT promote from within
Company does not promote from within and is not clear or upfront about the "reasons" for not choosing qualified candidates....wonder why??

Policies are not enforced throughout all levels of the company. It definitely matters which departments you work for and how long you've been there.

Interesting course
You need to be committed and self motivated to taking an online course. The new course is interesting and more in keeping with today's technology.
It is easy to follow and there are many support books and sites should you need further explanation to any subject.

No review before 2018 should count
New owners came in--everybody got fired--if they were lucky. Those of left faced 3 years of declining wages, lost benefits, impossible goals, no bonuses, increased hours, reversals in strategy, and constant retrenching. When I said the culture is slow-paced, I meant the overall sense of evolving markets and staying competitive--management are dinosaurs. Clueless, and leading the company to extinction.

High Turnover
Weak leadership and software platform is ancient. Selfish management and high turnover in strategic positions leaves the company struggling to sustain the culture and commitment to employees.

Excellent Culture and great opportunity to drive revenue
Due to corporate restructuring, my entire inside sales division was laid off. Otherwise, I would still be there. This has been a very rewarding career for my personal and professional development.

Not a place for long term growth
In short, I wouldn't recommend working at Skillsoft after my time there as they are struggling to figure out what their strategy is and they've had a dearth of leadership and lack of a CEO. That said the people who work there are generally great

Good place for a starter job
Wonderful group of peer coworkers. Many of the management staff has a large amount of knowledge and is receptive to questions. The hardest part of the job is seeing the varying different degrees of work ethic and how not every individual is held to the same standards.

What I learned
No job will ever be enough if you aren't happy in the field itself. No perks, no pay, nothing. Skillsoft provides great training, one on one and team. They are the ideal Employer for 2018. it just doesn't matter if it doesn't matter.

Skillsoft Corporation not what it use to be
I have worked for Skillsoft for over 10 yrs, it use to be fun and exciting. However since it was sold to a UK Private Equity firm the company has gone straight down. The management team is useless and loves blaming their employees for their failures instead of looking in the mirror. Don't get me wrong the employees working in the trenches are great and quite honestly the only reason I am still at Skillsoft. In closing I would not recommend anyone seek employment with this dysfunctional company.
Pros
Lunch, Employees and paycheck
Cons
Everything else at the company

Great until they started selling off the company
SkillSoft was a great place to work with great bosses but when they started selling the company and eliminating departments things went south. Now the benefits are far less and job security is non existent.

it depends
what group and level of expertise of your manager. Some roles and or times in a role are great / others not so much. Skillsoft doesn't practice what it preaches, have time to take the courses it supplies to clients. So either managers have been trained by other companies, are just good managers, take extra time to learn - or the majority are not great. The employees in client services roles are 99% great people, who want to do the right things for clients. Management decisions are not always client centric, appear to be driven by most cost effective and unreasonable timelines. Never seemed to be full / proper risk analysis communicated to the field on impact of changes to system and or course libraries. Field is left explaining changes or taking the heat from clients.
Pros
most work from home, flexibililty, variety of clients
Cons
depending on role, may never meet colleagues or clients
