If you want to develop professional skills and teach English in Korea for three years or less, it's a great experience.

I worked at Berlitz full-time (more than an year)

Pros

English-speaking bosses, opportunities to learn about Korean business and culture, a tremendous chance to experience cross-cultural communication experience.

Cons

I found my coworkers to be generally cheerful, but largely unmotivated. While I learned a great deal about working in a professional environment, I saw very little incentive to continue working at this school for more than a year or two.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think upper management needs to be more transparent with instructors about decisions being made. During my time at Berlitz I often felt like upper management was detached from the lives and concerns of instructors and lower management.

    I have been working at Berlitz part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    good for CV, fantastic atmosphere of corporate culture, supporting and understanding management

    Cons

    very low teachers' salary , neither teacher education nor working experience make difference in salary - it's pretty the same money experienced professional teachers with a very good feedback from students and casual teachers with no teacher education or experience get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    low teachers' salary and wage levelling irrespective of education, working experience and feedbacks from students demotivate teachers.
