Company Culture

There hasn't been an org chart for years; management changes like the tide. Scandal surrounded this company in its prior form as NNDS so they changed their name for damage control. See NNDS (National Network of Digital Schools) for info on this. Communication is haphazard and priorities change constantly. Toxic culture.

Support from management

This doesn't exist. Upper management has dubious credentials. Check Linked In for them and note how many are not qualified to lead an educational non-profit. Multiple layers of middle management are constructed to give titles to unqualified 20-somethings who are never trained or mentored in project management or people management. They have titles but are either untrained or tempermentally unsuited to manage people or projects.

Teamwork

Nepostism is a big thing in this company. There are people who know each other, then there are the others.

Freedom to work independently

Depends on the supervisor. Some are inappropriately controlling, others not. (see above)

Internal Communication

What communciation? Disorganization leads to chaos. Plan to get directions and info through email/skype, and good luck keeping it straight! Don't expect your communication to be secure. They seem to monitor it.

Gender Equality

See above.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Terrible. See how many there aren't. If you aren't of pregnancy age (and sex), you're a minority.

Career Development

Again, "promotions" are strange and devoid of meaning. I went from working for a certain person to working 3 levels under her in one day. And one of my so-called supervisors had no direct contact with me at all. It's a mystery.

Overall compensation for your work

Small annual increases for workers. Perhaps all of those pseudo-middle managers get increases?

Office / Work Environment

Actually the people who work in the office as admins and other positions are probably more friendly and welcoming than the "professional" staff.

Environmental Friendliness

See above

Work-Life Balance

If you get a position working from home, this is the single reason best reason for working here. But there are increasingly more positions open for work at home. If you have a choice, look into those first.

Company Image

See NNDS history for scandals. See upper management credentials and decide whether they are respected educators.

Challenging Work

It can be challenging all right. Esp when you work a summer of overtime with no compensation.

Inclusive / Diverse

Check the numbers Not diverse at all. Heavy with white men as top executives and young white women every place else. At one time, I worked for a supervisor who wasn't even in the field of education. She was simply related to an upper manager.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Start over with credentialed educators as upper managers. Promote less middle management and train them when you do.

Company Culture

If employees are not uncomfortably busy, they're not working hard enough.

Gender Equality

Though a non-profit, pay was low.

Office / Work Environment

Collaboration is often discouraged.

Work-Life Balance

Required to work 8-4 - overtime not required, but was necessary to stay in good standing with superiors.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Plan projects.

What I like about the company

Great benefits.

What I dislike about the company

They laid off a married couple on the same day, and the wife was pregnant. Not illegal, but did not put others at ease.

Company Culture

Everyone keeps to themselves and doesn't really associate with one another.

Support from management

Management changes constantly, so do the rules

Career Development

You're stuck in the position they hire you unless a manager quits, then you absorb their role too.

Office / Work Environment

Old office, dim lighting, not enough room so I had to share a desk with another coworker

Job Security

They told my coworker and I that we would have a job for at least 6 months if not longer, and we were laid off after we met our first deadline due to 'lack of work'

Challenging Work

Way too easy, not rewarding
