    I have been working at Connections Academy full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I absolutely love the flexibility of my schedule, my team, and the work I get to do in this company. The work-life balance is so much greater than being in a traditional school setting, and we get to be a part of really meaningful work with students in an online capacity.

    Cons

    Need to be self-motivated and self-disciplined when working from home.
