Illuminate Education Awarded “Best Places to Work” by Glassdoor for Second Consecutive Year

Irvine, California (Dec. 5, 2017) — Illuminate Education, a leading provider of K-12 technology and services, has been awarded a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognizing the Best Places to Work in 2018. The Employees’ Choice Awards program, now in its tenth year, relies solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and companies via Glassdoor.

Illuminate Education places on the list of the Top 50 employers in the small to medium business category, with an aggregate score of 4.9 out of 5 stars across multi-faceted criteria.

“We are proud to be recognized for the unique culture, strong team commitment, and purpose-driven business that is Illuminate. It is the collective achievement of our team that for the second consecutive year, 99 percent of us would recommend working at Illuminate to a friend,” said Max Carnecchia, CEO of Illuminate Education. “We look forward to continuing to grow our community and investing in our team as we provide increasing value to the educators and students who have shaped our success.”

On Glassdoor, current and former employees of companies worldwide can share insights and opinions about their work environments by sharing a company review, designed to capture a genuine and authentic inside look at what it’s like to work at particular jobs and companies. When sharing a company review on Glassdoor, employees are asked to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation, benefits, work/life balance, senior management, as well as culture and values. In addition, employees are asked to describe the best reasons to work at their companies as well as any downsides.

The Best Places to Work are determined using company reviews shared by U.S.-based employees between November 1, 2016 and October 22, 2017. To be considered for the small & medium category, a company must have fewer than 1,000 employees and have received at least 25 ratings across eight workplace attributes from U.S.-based employees during the period of eligibility. The final list is compiled based on Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, and takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.
