I have been working at English Program in Korea
Pros – The compensation/benefits package isn't awful. Pay is low, but the cost-of-living here is low too. Free apartment, flights in and out, nice severance.
Cons – Xenophobia and mistrust on the part of communities and EPiK management makes it difficult to feel like yo're more than just chattel. Schools are hit or miss - some are great, some are nightmares. It's best not to think of this as a professional position: you're here to do what they need you to do. There are no (literally no) opportunities for advancement or professional development.
Advice to Senior Management – Figure out what you want: are you hiring professionals, or human CD players? If you're just looking for a "play" button on a verbal English lesson, give it up and just buy the CDs instead.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
