SkillSoft Employee
in Rochester, NY

"This company is focused on profits for the investment companies that own it. The management doesn't appear to value the employees and especially not their careers. The products are a kludge, getting better since they bought Element K, but the teams are silo'd and do not communicate with each other. Even when their products are highly coupled. This leads to obvious problems with compatibility and integration. There is a mindset of, "This is the way it has always been done. So this is the way we will continue to do it.", even when they don't know how the process originiated or why certain decsions were made."

"I worked with the corporate marketing team for just over a year. I went through many changes as far as the actual team and its leadership. Never had a real common goal, everyone was about themselves and it never seemed like it was a team striving for the betterment of the company. My role was on a constant change every 3 months. I was sat down and told I had to do my job and my role this way."
