I have been working at Boston Reed College part-time
Pros – Work independently. Decent pay. Great second job (most classes are in the evenings two days a week or on a Saturday).
Cons – Long hours at home that are unpaid. Hard to get full-time hours (if not impossible; I think the company does not want to pay benefits). The school is under new ownership which seems determined to put out a lower quality student. After years of loyal service, the company decided to substantially decrease everyone's pay.
Advice to Senior Management – A substantial pay cut will drive many of your "valued" employees to new jobs.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at Boston Reed College as a contractor for less than a year
Pros – independent, base pay was once excellent
Cons – do not have the instructors back when dealing with students, more concerned about the bottom line, do not supply the appropriate equipment for lecturing and skills lab, students complained that they were led to believe one thing and then they found out differently
Advice to Senior Management – the huge cut in pay is not beneficial to the retention of exceptionally dedicated instructors. the hybrid online/in person is a good idea if given enough time to actually help students that don't understand a few key concepts. Compensate your instructors who spend hours on more and more required paperwork and tutoring sessions
