Customer Success Specialist (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 27 April 2018
Toxic toxic toxic. Morale at an all time low. This place is to be avoided at all costs. Looks at the reviews. People are miserable. Don’t go just because you need a job. You’re better than what this place could offer you and it will suck your soul.

Escaping from Lifelearn is the best thing that has happened to me since being hired. The last 6 months have been like the later stages of an abusive relationship. We did our best with the scant support that was givin the team but it was never good enough. And we were all rewarded with toxic micromanagement, brow beatings, and bullying.

Lifelearn has become nothing more than a sales company only interested in pushing out inferior products as quickly as possible to gouge their loyal clients. And is completely disinterested in the well being or morale of their employees as long as they can make the deadlines decided on by management. Any deadline dissenters will be forced out to make room for the yes-men.

Software Developer (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 17 March 2017
- Leadership is heavily dominant to their employees. - Management sets unrealistic deadlines within involving a developer. - Management thinks developers are insignificant and worthless. - Completely two-faced and backstabbing. - Management are unqualified for an IT solution corporation. - Zero process/workflow and absolutely no organization or structure. - Culture is essential in an IT company, LifeLearn has the most toxic culture I have ever worked in.
I regret spending my time, mileage, and skills on LifeLearn.
company holds promise if it can return to its roots
Team lead (Current Employee) – Guelph – 19 December 2016
The company has a long history of steady growth and the culture was mostly positive. Unfortunately executive level management made decisions that set the company on the wrong path and also created a toxic culture. Recent changes will hopefully move the company back in the right direction but likely still more work needs to be done so that knowledgeable people are in leadership roles.
Nice office and dog friendly
Toxic culture lead by micro managers who are not even in the office most of the time
Product Specialist (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 14 November 2016
Used to be a great place to work, however it has declined dramatically. Rapid growth has caused the company to forget about the bottom tier staff. Their products have multiple bugs and kinks that are regularly overlooked, as they attempt to create new products in the hopes it will be their saving grace. There is a lack of customer service, causing them to hemorrhage customers, as well as an obvious lack of training in regards to products. Staff attempting to fix the above problems are often over-looked and/or ignored completely.

This used to be a good place to work, but management lost its way. High turnover and low morale have created a toxic culture. You can take your concerns to management, and they'll even listen - but nothing changes. They have put all of their focus on one project to the detriment of all of the others, and that cornerstone product can't get off the ground.
20+ Year Old Company that Feels Life a Tech Startup

Fun workplace that gets the job done, this close-knit company has the challenging and energetic feel of a tech startup without the long hours or uncertainty. Based out of Guelph, Ontario LifeLearn services clients across Canada and United States.
You couldn’t ask for a better group of talented and dedicated people. Working in the tech industry comes with its far share of hiccups, but everyone here takes them as they come, learning from these challenges and adapting.
