Poor management
Content (Former Employee) –  Remote2 August 2019
Great product and vision, but not so great for employees: There are almost no growth opportunities; management that does not value employees who have been loyal to the company; culture is one that breeds distrust.

Ed-tech company with family values
Project Manager/Certified Scrum Master (Current Employee) –  Lakewood, NJ14 November 2018
Over the years the company has promoted strong family values and excellent customer service. There have been periods of huge growth and the company is attempting to take it to the next level while buckling down on core scrum values.

management out of touch, ineffective
Senior Development & Operations Engineer (Former Employee) –  Lakewood, NJ18 September 2018
management decisions are made irrationally without acknowledgment of details, e.g. releasing CTO without replacement

separation of roles does not allow pair-programming

technology architecture considerations are not made effectively resulting in huge cost of ownership

Pretty Bad Leadership
Support (Former Employee) –  Remote3 January 2018
Good/nice peers, terrible management. The CEO is a super micromanager, wants to make all decisions herself, takes on a personal liking or DISLIKE for individuals, all the way down to the foot soldiers. Very greedy, and needs to learn alittle compassion.
Pros
Remote work possible, good pay
Cons
bad culture, very clicky, somewhat disorganized

Work Culture was difficult
Sr. Salesforce.com Administrator, Sales (Former Employee) –  Lakewood, NJ6 December 2017
I think that Achieve3000 could be a good workplace if you are a part of their particular culture. There were many wonderful and talented people that worked there but it was not the work culture that I was looking for.
Pros
Work From Home, Ability to work independently
Cons
Culture was strict due to extremely conservative religious beliefs

Better watch your back
Analyst (Former Employee) –  NJ30 October 2017
Turnover is extremely high here, unless you are a certain religion. They are constantly putting out fires and not trying to fix poor processes. Upper Management controls everything and do not let the people they hire do their jobs
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
Always putting out fires, lack of autonomy, management rules by fear

Horrible Management- Favortism based on religion. - Dysfunctional CEO
Renewal Specialist (Former Employee) –  Lakewood, NJ24 November 2016
Worst company I ever worked for!
The CEO needs to MICROMANAGE EVERYTHING!
On top of that she has zero respect for anyone, but those in her own religion!
She has no problem screaming at employees, belittling them & treating people horribly.
Constantly setting up meetings with customers & cancelling last minute.

Management there can't do ANYTHING without approval by the Owner/CEO! How about having a little faith in your employees!?
Its truly dysfunctional

While I worked there I watched atleast 1 person get fired a week! No verbal or written warnings!
If you work here have a backup plan. You say the wrong thing or get the CEO upset over ANYTHING, the next week you'll be out!

This company needs to be held accountable for their awful treatment of employees!
Should be illegal to treat people the way they do
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
Dysfunctional CEO, Micromanagement, Favortism based on Religion

If you get hired it may only be for a short time period - a lot of employees leave or are let go within a year of joining company.
Inside Sales (Former Employee) –  Lakewood, NJ4 May 2015
The company has a good mission - to help students read better to make a lot of money. I know they make money and believe the statistics are valid that students increase their Lexile scores. The company churns employees. I don't see the company valuing its employees and developing their skills. Good pay for sales and top executives but low pay for lower level staff.
Pros
Mission
Cons
Lack of Job Security

Eh
Implementation Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Lakewood, NJ3 October 2013
No room for growth; micromanagement all around; raises are rare and never generous; appear to be flexible with schedules but really are not; best perk is a lot of vacation time.

Puts the function in dysfunctional
Sales (Former Employee) –  Lakewood, NJ8 January 2013
Good product. Megalomaniac leadership. Need I say more? (Apparently so as Indeed won't let me off the hook with just eight words. Is this enough yet?)
Pros
product
Cons
top down leadership
