    I worked at EF English First full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Legit visa Paid on time Good stepping stone into ESL, they will support you with training initially.

    Cons

    Poor management - Will take advantage of you at every opportunity. Summer course has you working a lot of extra hours with laughable compensation. High turnover, you will probably see a completely new office within a year.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so surprised so many teachers are leaving when they get treated poorly.
