What I learned
Lead Generator/Business Development Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Knoxville, TNOctober 22, 2018
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
Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Nashua, NHSeptember 29, 2018
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
IT Helpdesk Technician (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZJuly 21, 2018
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
Learning Consultant (Virtual) (Former Employee) –  RemoteJuly 10, 2018
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

Management but no Leadership
Customer Sales Director (Current Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZMay 13, 2018
Overall, the people are nice here but any chance of career progression in this organization is only available to those who want to live in New Hampshire. The people running the office are great at putting together spreadsheets but have zero ability to develop or lead individuals.
Pros
Very loose 40 hour work week
Cons
"Not my problem" culture in the office

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
Principal Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Nashua, NHFebruary 15, 2018
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.

Formerly great place to work, trying to get back
