    I have been working at ELS Language Centers full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I love the students I work for - that is what keeps me going despite the long hours without extra pay or comp/flex time. I also love my coworkers who bring a wealth of talent and experience to their jobs. I love my actual job responsibilities because they allow me to advise and mentor international students in a way that makes a difference in their lives. Vacation is mediocre - 2 weeks each year. Health benefits are good, but ELS excludes acupuncture and massage, which is disappointing for those who are into holistic and alternative medicine.

    Cons

    The pay is abysmal. I had 5 years of experience when I was hired, and I was only offered an entry-level salary (which I took, because I desperately wanted to relocate to where the job was). Later I found out that bonuses and performance raises are contingent upon ALL 60 ELS Language Centers meeting certain target goals (which I've never seen in writing)...so don't hold your breath or expect regular incremental pay increases. We experienced an administrative staff turnover rate of 50% the year I was hired, and I anticipate that we will have another 50% turnover rate this year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your competitors are offering higher salaries within the private language center industry. I suggest that you follow suit. Also, consider that if you invest up front in your employee satisfaction, you will waste less money hiring and training new teachers and staff as frequently as you do.
