Chance to Work Abroad and Have a New Experience

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Gepik

Pros-Working with students has been worthwhile, the kind co-workers I've met, salary is stable and for the most part on-time, experiencing a new culture and workplace. Apartment is paid for and there's little financial stress, vacation and holidays are aplenty. Good for a gap year or someone who wants to travel the world while getting paid.

ConsNo career advancement, not a resume builder, important details, deadlines and meetings are told at the last possible moment, change in your schedule frequent, your relationship with your co-teacher can make or break your workplace satisfaction, no recourse if things go awry. You have to get back to your real life in your home country eventually.

Advice to Senior ManagementBetter support for teacher's complaints and grievances, better organization, and training for first time ESL teachers.
