I worked at Diplomatic Language Services as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Working hours are flexible. Employment is flexible.

Cons

They pay very low and do not treat teachers as employees. Sometimes work time is bad. For example 2 hours per day and 2 times a week. If you drive you need to pay $12 parking. You cannot find free parking in that area. Although they have a 24 hour cancellation policy they would press the teachers to give free class to please the students. Teachers work as contractors but they provide W-2 not 1099 form. So the teachers can't report as a self-employed language service provider and therefore pay a lot more taxes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay more and provide 1099 tax form
