Manager (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – 26 October 2017
If you're new to the world of marketing, Rosetta Stone is a great place to hone your skills, learn about new medias, works with talented team-mates and create some work you'll be proud of...
However, there are a few cons, this is a lanugage learning company and there are several competitors including; duo lingo, babel fish, google translate to name a few. This means, market share is low and turnover is inevitable.
Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – 8 March 2018
As a sales associate it is rare that you get an opportunity to sell high market items and succeed. I had a great time selling my products and excelled greatly. i believe you should get paid more per hour and more commission
Worked with fantastic people and had a phenomenal corporate office
Area Manager (Former Employee) – Toledo, OH – 5 March 2018
Calling each store manager every morning to ensure store opened successfully and obtain daily sales figures. Learned what an amazing company this was to work for and wold have stayed had the economy not forced several locations to close. Culture was very diverse and peaceful as well as the company as a whole treated everyone with respect. Hardest part of the job was leaving it due to closures and the most enjoyable was working daily with wonderful people.

Great atmosphere and great place to work. I worked on the Helpdesk team and prepared, re-imaged, repaired, and ordered new computer, monitors, printers, etc. Relaxed business casual dress code. Great benefits.

Rosetta Stone is run by professionals. They have their processes down. From the product owner to the scrum master to the manager to the technical lead, they are good people. It was a pleasure to work with and for Rosetta Stone.
Online English coach, grader, material creator (Current Employee) – Remote – 12 January 2018
It's ok. You make your own schedule but your clients are often arrogant and don't study at all. The other employees are nice and management is really helpful. The hardest part of the job is getting paid very little to put up with such big attitudes. The most enjoyable part is when you meet some very interesting people.
Sprachlehrerin (Current Employee) – King County, WA – 29 November 2017
Mithilfe ausgeklügelter Technik gelingt es Rosetta Stone, Menschen die sich an verschiedenen Orten des Globus aufhalten zu ermöglichen, eine sprachliche Verbindung miteinander aufzubauen. Man hat sich nie getroffen, und plötzlich tauscht man sich über Hobbies oder das Lieblingsessen aus - in einer neuen Sprache! Als Coach erlebe ich das immer wieder wie ein kleines Wunder, wenn Leute aus Melbourne, Rio und Dortmund miteinander sprechen und ich ihnen dabei helfe.

Sales (Current Employee) – Rosslyn, VA – 30 July 2017
Since arriving at the company many years ago, Rosetta Stone has consistently struggled with directing its sales efforts. Three CEOs, and multiple sales managers later, the sales team's directly feel the stress of poor communication and consequent chaos and change.
I worked for Lexia as a PLF. The position and the expectations are reasonable. However, the company is poorly managed and there is a lack of communication between PLFs and managers. Much of this is because everyone is not meant to be a manager (poor communication, unclear expectations/intentions). The company also seems to play favorites where expectations, in terms of presentation and style, for some PLFs are greater than others. You may shadow other PLFs and see that they present in the same way that you do or worst, but then you are critiqued more harshly. Favoritism and lack of clear expectations is bad for morale and can make the work inconsistent.
The running theme (code for excuse) is that the company is facing growing pains. Of course, there are challenges as a company grows but through better planning and communication much of the foolishness could be avoided. I would NOT recommend working for this company in the immediate future.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Virtual – 29 March 2017
General consensus is that the company was trying to save itself at the expense of people and product. Complete lack of innovation (for a software company) and very little by way of professional development.
Spanish Latino America Coach (Current Employee) – Virginia – 1 February 2017
Rosetta Stone is a fantastic place to work. But it is a part time job without benefits.It is the most enjoyable place to work. The management is good. The learners will have a very good system to learn.
