    I worked at K12 Insight full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There are no pros - they hire only slaves

    Cons

    You will be treated like a slave. You do not have the right to suggest or put any inputs - you only have to do things that you are told, even if it is not a part of your job role. In fact, you will only be given work that’s not a part of your job role. So be ready to wipe the boss’s shoes

    I worked at K12 Insight full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    --The company is small and there are lots of opportunities to get involved. I had the opportunity to work on projects in the customer success, product development, and sales departments. Each of these projects had me on cross-functional teams with different people from the company. That kind of exposure to so many departments is invaluable for those looking to break into the SaaS industry. --You will hear from lots of employees at K12 Insight how impressed they are with coworkers. The K12 Insight team is full of brilliant people with deep passion for the work they do. --Connection to public education: improving public education is at the bedrock of K12 Insight and is home to any and all passionate about education. --Now is a good time to join the K12 Insight family. Lots of exciting new developments and new opportunities.

    Cons

    --In my time with the company, there were several pivots in terms of what we were trying to present to the market. At times, this can dilute the vision and mission of the company. That is getting better, but there is still work to do. The company needs a clear answer to the question: who are you and what do you do? --Product development can be slow. Some features were prioritized over others without consideration for what users were asking for. There are several aspects of the product that need to get better from a UX/UI perspective. --Sometimes the company feels more like a stuffy research company than a software company. Not saying the office needs to go full Google, but the overall office layout and culture could use a little more fun and innovation

    I worked at K12 Insight full-time

    Pros

    Company has great products and great people to work with

    Cons

    Management and C-levels are very challenging to work with. Need to improve priorities and management. You'll work 40+ hours most of the time a week.

    I worked at K12 Insight full-time

    Pros

    The work is really interesting, the clients are school districts that are prioritizing being thoughtful and responsive to their communities.

    Cons

    The start-up culture, one that is responsive to the market and likely to adapt, can be stressful for people who like to settle into a job and have it become more routine.

    I worked at K12 Insight full-time

    Pros

    My peers were great mentors for this field. Absolutely my time learning from them.

    Cons

    Management is very sensitive to criticism, and it will probably be the company's downfall as they are not flexible to change. I am writing this review now because I worked at the company several months ago. The CEO of the company sent out an employee satisfaction survey to the whole company. He then had an all hands meeting to discuss the results, during which he stated: "20% of you do not think your managers are properly managing you, and are not satisfied with how things are run. To those of you who feel this way. Just leave, and quit." Rather than address and followup to how the company could be run better he told his employees to leave. To my knowledge at least 5 employees have put in notice following that meeting, and more are debating it. Thats over 10% of the HQ's staff. Food for thought. When an employee gives constructive criticism. Its not an attack. They care enough about the company to want to better it. If you attack them and make them leave, then less people in the company are there that actually care about its success. Good luck.

    Pros

    Outstanding interview process, this company has invested so much time in my training, I am grateful. Culture of kindness but inspires to do better every day. Core values that inspires: #Remarkable, #Innovation, #FierceConversations, #Resourceful and #Relationships. All are rooted in a book we all read or Ted Talks. CEO leads by example. Brilliant but humble.

    Cons

    They've slow to fire people who are incompetent and don't pull their own weight. Although I feel that's changing and I am glad.

    I have been working at K12 Insight full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I started working at this company three years ago. Over the past three years I have acquired an outstanding skill-set, leadership opportunities and the ability to communicate with nationally recognized educational leaders. The company has a very inclusive culture, and the leadership team goes out of its way to foster two-way dialogue with all of its employees. Decisions are made in a collaborative process, and senior leadership is always willing to hear employee feedback. Lots of room to grow in my role and gain more responsibility. Great people who organized events to make work an engaging place. You're definitely allowed to take on projects and have room to make changes if you see something that's not working. I continue to learn so much here, and really feel like my work is valued and appreciated by senior leadership.

    Cons

    My con can really be said for all companies in corporate America. At times, incompetent individuals are hired.
