  • I would re-evaluate or standardize the process for hiring and promoting people.

What I like about the company

I've had many positive experiences at my company. I love my boss and team that I work directly with and genuinely like 95% of the people I come into contact with. I feel valued in the company- they are always using surveys after meetings/events to make them better and inform us of key company decisions being made while in the process of making them. If people complain about something, it is dealt with accordingly and in a timely manner. There are also many perks to my job including free breakfasts/lunches during events, free travel and stay during our annual company meeting, unlimited PTO, great health insurance, paid appointment leave, etc. I would definitely recommend working for 2U.

What I dislike about the company

Although there are many great things about 2U, it is still a company that has its faults. It is oddly political getting a promotion- not everyone promoted really deserves it and sometimes you are promoted simply because the hiring manager likes you. This seems normal for most companies of the past but 2U has tried so hard to promote progressive policies and seems like it would have a better system for promoting good employees over bad (ones who should be fired rather than promoted).

Suggestions for improvement

  • I'd add more diversity to our other offices.

What I like about the company

When I first started working here I thought that this would be somewhere I'd be for 6 months tops. 3 days in, I knew that I wanted to be here long term. We work hard and play hard and the culture is simply amazing. The pay is fair. I've made more money doing similar work with other organizations but I dreaded those places. But that's not the case at 2U. I want to be here and grow here and I have been doing just that. I've received 2 promotions in 3 years and I interview for a new position that I'm likely to get tomorrow! My income has grown by more than 50% since I started. I'm treated well and am very happy all around!

What I dislike about the company

The areas that I've had constructive feedback on over the years have literally all been addressed to my satisfaction. I can fairly say that I have nothing at the moment to contribute to this question.

Suggestions for improvement

  • This is a ""young"" culture and may need more ""wise"" owls to help balance things out. Promoting from within is great but friends promoting friends isn't really professional.

What I like about the company

I had a very serious emergency when I first started and I was treated with such kindness and understanding that I knew I made the right choice with this company.

What I dislike about the company

This company needs to offer RTD passes or parking or both. Working remotely would be a definite draw here as well. Salary also needs to meet the cost of living.
