    Pros

    The majority of people at Takelessons are great. They are the biggest reason to work there and stay there. I believe its all derived from the musical background of the company, and the hiring process that involved everyone in rotation. It perpetuated the culture and filled the company with a great group of people who loved their work. Secondly, its a great place to grow (at least with my profession). I've learned a lot while at Takelessons and appreciate the professional development opportunities available.

    Cons

    Takelessons is going through changes. Everything mentioned in the Pros, appears to be slowly going away. I have hope that things will look up, but I can't paint a portrait any different than I see it. The Pros are decreasing and the Cons are increasing. Another issue is compensation which has been addressed through a more refined review program. Despite that, I feel the salaries are too extreme on both the high and low ends of the spectrum.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management seriously needs to reevaluate the internals of the company. Takelessons is a great place to learn and grow professionally and most will eventually move onto a job at another company. Some, although, will stay longer because they were promoted. Those people need to stay in order for the company to succeed. Otherwise, all I see is a vicious cycle that will leave the company in a perpetual stall.

    Takelessons is a good supplimentary income job.

    Pros

    Steady contract teaching work for extended time.

    Cons

    You take a serious pay cut, as opposed to teaching privately on your own. (50% reduction at least.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get alot of your own students before you start the program.
