    I worked at Sylvan Learning Centers full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Good program materials for students.
    -Sylvan is very focused on student growth and achievement.
    -Sylvan corporate has a dedicated team for technical and operations support.
    -There is a great deal of training available via web conferences and online to help you keep updated of content changes and improvements.
    -As a center director you have the opportunity to build a strong team of teachers and administrators.
    -You can grow your center as you would your own business.

    Cons

    -Sylvan centers are franchised and therefore individual experiences will vary depending on your relationship with the franchisee.
    -Insufficient salary for directors but this greatly varies from one franchise to another and bonuses are tied to the performance of the center.
    -Lots of corporate training but no follow through.
    -Program costs for Sylvan are still out of reach for many families that could benefit from the service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Sylvan corporate needs to find a way to make its programs available to a larger demographic.
    -Ease up on the corporate costs being funneled through the Franchisees.
    -Standardize the pay scale for teachers...they are integral to the success of your students.
