Good use of the summer for someone without the academic background to be qualified for more competitive internships.

Pros

The pay is pretty good if you work hard enough. Hours are flexible and management is accessible and easy to relate to.

Cons

If you are starting an entirely new branch you will have a hard time attracting clients because the company's name recognition is effectively nil.

    Challenging but worthwhile opportunity for freshman summer

    Pros

    For those who are resolutely self-driven or have a highly entrepreneurial spirit, this experience could prove to be a valuable resume-builder. It also could help you figure out if managing your own business is something you enjoy and whether you like more independent/solo work vs. more collaborative work in an office setting.

    Cons

    If you're someone who prefers a more structured work situation or requires more guidance from superiors, then this role might not be the right fit for you. My co-manager and I felt frustrated about correspondence with our regional manager, who was very quick to respond during the sales part of the process but much less so after we began lectures. Having taken a test prep course from another source, I didn't have the utmost confidence in some of the teaching materials' strategies.

    Pros

    The position taught me many things about how to manage people and their expectations. I not only got to work with clients to obtain customers and facilities, but I also in the end got to teach and inspire students to work. A very well-rounded occupation that gave me lots of built in data to really measure the success of my work.

    Cons

    For those that are not entrepreneurial-minded or are simply new to this kind of business will have some obstacles in the beginning getting started.
