    I worked at Web International English full-time

    Pros

    Web International English is a fairly average English training centre in China, not the best, not the worst. The main benefit is the low level of commitment from the foreign teachers, there are no office hours and they only require minimal class preparation. As usual for the ESL industry, the students and some of the colleagues are the real plus for the job.

    Cons

    The lesson materials that they require you to use are both basic and out of date. There is very little importance attached to academic standards so you will often teach students who are clearly in the wrong level. There is no career development/training, and it is rare for foreign staff to stay here for longer than a couple of years. Relations with management have a tendency to sour, I saw many foreign staff leave on bad terms.

    Pros

    Easy work, premade lesson plans, love working with adults and students are great, very flexible, always paid on time, I don't really have a boss or answer to anyone. The lesson plans weren't always great but they've worked hard to improve them.

    Cons

    Pay could be higher but I prefer to teach adults for slightly less.

    I worked at Web International English full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Easy work - Some of the students were nice

    Cons

    - Constantly lied to by employers - Outdated materials - Poor management - Company went bankrupt, and I was not paid 1 months salary as a result. Apparently all of the Chinese staff at my centre had not been paid for 3 months, I only found out about this when there was suddenly a strike, shortly before the company went bankrupt.
