      If you care about education, don't work here.

      Pros

      The teachers are passionate and really care about the kids

      Cons

      Money is the absolute most important thing to this company. Understandable, they're a for-profit company. But under current administration (District Managers, Regional VPs, etc) the bottom line is absolutely the only thing that matters. Once parents have signed the contracts and given their money to the company, at that point they cease to matter until such a time that they complain and threaten to refund. Administration claims that we are about enriching the lives of students and helping fulfill educational goals, but that couldn't be further from the truth. Going above and beyond for the kids and families isn't only actively discouraged, doing practically anything more than the barest minimum in terms of customer service is seen as a waste of time and effort. Additionally, they will reprimand and punish Directors and Coordinators for prioritizing the well-being of their employees. A high-ranking employee once asked if they could take a single day off for their mental health (when they had PTO available to them) and the District Manager said they could only take a day off once they hit budget for the month. This man's actions, deplorable as they are, just reflect the values of the company. You don't matter, your well-being doesn't matter, the kids/families don't matter. The only thing they care about is money. Also they have semi-annual raises built into the contracts, but the moment COVID they got rid of them and are not reinstating them despite the company being much more profitable now than it was a year ago.

      All about the Benjamins

      Pros

      Since it's required that teachers have a degree, most of your colleagues are intelligent. It's fun working with the kids who almost universally are strongly motivated. Staff ask teachers their availability each season, so teachers can set their hours. (Center directors, on the other hand, work long hours and are under a lot of stress to maximize enrollment.) It's a good gig if you have something else, but not as your primary gig.

      Cons

      As someone once explained it, it's education run on a retail or fast food model. All the teachers, except one lead teacher are part time and without benefits. Two key measures centers a judge by are student-teacher ratio and the number of enrollments. Teachers teach 3:1, rather than 1:1. This minimizes the necessary human capital (teachers) while maximizing the students. If three students aren't enrolled in a class session, the center can drop the class or consolidate the students into another teacher's class. This can be difficult to manage, as each of the students is studying something different. Another practice that allows the company to make money at teachers' expense has to do with the notification period. Families must notify the center 24-hours in advance of an absence, while the center is required to notify teachers 12-hours in advance. So, it's possible that a family will be charged for a session, but the teacher will not be paid for said session.

      no growth but consumed

      Pros

      Cannot think of anything good about this company but if I dig into positive side of the work is that you feel rewarded in helping young students navigate their academic and life path before entering college.

      Cons

      There is no room to grow and advance unless you fit in certain clique or make good sales without fail every month, which is not realistically possible as the sales can go up and down subject to many different factors. This company is all about sales and money and pushes employees to lie about the tuition incentives and promotion to maximize the company's profit. Employee turnover is very high and I have met only a countable number of employees who seem professional and educated to mentor young students and handle many anxious parents. Overall unhealthy work environment seemed to get worse over the time. Hope they listen to employees feedback and have openminded approaches to implement sound and positive measures into their business operations and administration, etc.

      Good temp job

      Pros

      This is a good place to work if you’re a teacher looking for extra cash or looking for a new teaching job. Not a good long term job unless you’re a director.

      Cons

      The pay is better than many competitors but, as can be said of many teaching jobs, the salary is not commensurate with the effort or results.

      Pros

      Since the pandemic, they've incorporated a virtual learning aspect. It's really nice to work from home.

      Cons

      Barely enough hours provided per week to really live off this paycheck. Great job for a side hustle, but if you're trying to pay your bills with this job, it won't be enough.
