I started working for K12 back in 2019, as an enrollment specialist, getting students into their online schooling, it was a mixture of customer service, light sales, and documents processing. I quite enjoyed the work environment and my coworkers, I cannot thank them enough for the work they gave me, it was truly great.
Come 2020, my initial contract with them ended back in November, but they decided to rehire my for a different position, this time working on the backend of K12, I helped develop classes that students would be taking. This work was semi-remote, as prior to COVID-19, I would go to the office maybe 1-2 times a week, then work from home. Remote work was very comfortable, and my coworkers were incredible as well. It was a new experience, to say the least, a lot of learning, which my superiors were happy to help with.
My only dislike is that after all the work I did for them, I was never hired on permanently, just for contract work.
I have worked for K12 for 9 years. I have seen the company go from start-up to publicly traded. I work in product development with people committed to making highly effective educational materials. We are always thinking how to create a good user experience to help kids learn. There have been a lot of changes at the top and the company seems in transition. With that transition is uncertainty about roles and responsibilities. Middle management seems to care about the products and employees. I am not sure how upper management feels due to the frequent reorganization.
I've worked at K12 since 2011 and it was an okay company to work at. They have a great idea of teaching children with new methods and that's what is really appealing about the job. It's a quickly growing tech company that like most tech companies that grow fast, has growing pains.
