    I worked at American Institute for Foreign Study full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company has a terrific CEO and this is a great job for a person right out of college. I would suggest it to any new grad interested in cultural study. Colleagues in the UK/Germany/Poland are terrific. The company is really committed to cultural study programs and takes it very seriously. There is some opportunities to travel. Great teamwork. Au Pair in America is a well run team with excellent management.

    Cons

    Moving to a professional company from this job, you start to realize that the company culture, while "fun", is really unprofessional. Very unprofessional HR department. Low pay. Camp America team is questionably run and the management there is unprofessional Little opportunity for advancement, pay grades ALL over the place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish a salary grade system and a better eval process. Create more job levels so that people stay with the company longer than a couple of years.
