    Former Employee - English Teacher 

    I worked at Wall Street English part-time

    Pros

    Students are normally great to work with, good environment to meet other expats, the teaching is generally easy to prepare and deliver. The general English courses seem effective on the whole and students improve quickly so satisfaction was normally decent.

    Cons

    Management were demanding and sometimes rude to staff, often expect you to plan social events and do extra things like podcasts without pay. Often difficult to get enough hours and the manager's favourites often get better treatment in this respect, whether they were the best or not. The business/exam materials are out of date and not really engaging etc, which is frustrating for both teachers and students.

    I worked at Wall Street English part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I worked at Wall Street English full-time

    Pros

    No preparation for classes necessary.

    Cons

    Low salary, especially considering how much students are charged for classes. Also the management put too much emphasis on contract sales rather than student performance and staff well-being.
