    I worked at ELS Language Centers full-time

    Pros

    Most of the people are genuinely interested in helping ESL students learn and improve their English skills. Individuals who work at HQ are often supportive and communicative with some projects, though it's not consistent. The benefits were also fantastic compared to other academic companies.

    Cons

    Most full-time positions at centers are hectic because of the 4-week class schedule and the expectations that come from that can be overwhelming. If you are not working at HQ and are at the center-level, it is difficult to fight the constant expectation that you are always available for others' emergencies and are likely the only one at your center who can handle your duties (so vacation can be difficult to take if your center is small). Depending on the population of students at the center, the cultural issues can become very frustrating with students and husbands of students coming in to try to convince you that you are cheating them and why they should pass despite failing the curriculum, which can be very difficult for some students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better training for ADs and CDs about managing staff communication and morale. Also keep up communication with centers. It doesn't help to be told one thing and learn it is completely different a month after your center has changed.
