    Current Employee - Curriculum Designer in San Mateo, CA

    I have been working at IXL Learning full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I have really enjoyed my IXL experience overall. The work interesting, the ability to help students is satisfying, and my coworkers are great: friendly, supportive, and super bright and capable. I also enjoy great work-life balance.

    Cons

    I can understand where the reviewers are coming from. That said, those negatives are things that I have experienced rarely or that have little impact on my day-to-day work life.

    I have been working at IXL Learning full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. Management is very understanding and helpful. Didn't force people to go in to the office during covid.

    Cons

    If there are any cons, it can sometimes be frustrating to work in the older parts of the code base. The majority of the work isn't in those old spaces, but there are occasionally fixes that need to be applied there.

    I worked at IXL Learning full-time

    Pros

    IXL has a great product and a strong company culture. It's a great place to start out a career in Education Sales in the k-12 market.

    Cons

    Very specific in how they want you to sell with little room to be yourself in their selling model. Growing quickly and lots of changes occurring that are good, but they struggle to understand the perspective from the sales model from the field. Most sales folks are former educators and not from a sales background which is both great but could also be their demise.
