    I worked at Heritage Education Funds full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Average age of the employees are relatively young. Good place to star. Bottom line of employees are friendly and casual. Can easily be friends. Not too stressful at work. Good Work/Life balance Fair benefit plan, but salary is kind of low.

    Cons

    Upper management is treating bottom line employees are robots. No growth and do even think about reasonable raise/per

    Advice to Management

    If you want to retain talents, please treat them better

    Pros

    Heritage is a great place to work. It's a small enough company that you have the opportunity to gain cross functional/departmental experience. A lot of the work is hands-on and so you have the opportunity to learn from the ground up. It is a great place for someone who wants to get involved and learn. The people are really supportive and great to work with.

    Cons

    A con and a pro, being a smaller company, people are called on to wear several hats at times. For some, this is great, and for others who prefer predictable tasks, this might not be desirable.

    Pros

    Plenty of social events for employees.

    Management is not supportive of their employees and will only take care of themselves and not their subordinates. Its a "cut throat" atmosphere.
