Great Company, but not for people who want fast growth

I worked at EF Education First North America full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Great travel opportunity domestic and international, reliable expenses covered, training and development, office is big enough to find friends and people with similar interests. Intresting market to work in, blending education and travel. The values and experiences you are representing make it a very fulfilling job, with international opportunities if you invest years into a role. It's a great place to work for a few years but you may find yourself wanting more. While I was there, several large changes in company structure and culture took place

Cons

Political office, struggles to figure out a balance between corporate culture and individual personalities of staff, slow to change. Regardless of employees potential and results, you really have to put in the time to move up in the company and drink the company cool-aid. Speaking up against some things can get you in trouble. Some managers and directors were great to work with, others really got in the way of the companies potential

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to feedback from staff and and try and allow a more transparent work place

    Pros

    EF has so many offices all over the world - you can work in so many different countries!
    Great opportunities to rotate and change roles in different departments, and grow professionally.
    Super good atmosphere at the office, and offices have really nice decoration.
    Good salary and conditions.
    Challenging and interesting projects, that promotes interaction in between different colleagues, teams, and with other offices around the world.

    Working for them, and the atmosphere, people...it's just FUN, makes you enjoy what you are doing and makes you love your job!

    Cons

    Sometimes deadlines are tight and you need to work pretty hard, but...which company does not have this?
