I have been working at Princeton Review part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

very flexible--teachers/tutors are able to say yes or no to teaching classes/taking on new clients (must teach a certain number of classes per term). when tutoring, tutor and parents create their own schedules. there is room to advance in the company and make higher wages. almost everyone working for tpr is very nice and emphatic about what s/he does.

Cons

can be very disorganized at times. sometimes have to drive relatively long distances (fortunately, longer distances are reimbursed).

    I have been working at Princeton Review full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Free test prep for full time employees
    Good product
    Nice people to work for

    Cons

    Some very bad decisions being made
    Management clearly making too much money in a failing company
    Failure to fix major technology problems which make too much work for everyone

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making false promises
    Hire enough people to maintain 40 hour work weeks or pay people enough to make working 50 worth their time
    Reviews seem very false without true goals being set
    Stop changing the org structure of the company

    I worked at Princeton Review

    Pros

    Number of hours good
    Thorough training process
    Overall, pretty flexible

    Cons

    Hourly rate lower than other teaching options
    Paid only for time in class, not prep time
    Lack of clarity for future options - wasn't sure whether or not I'd have a class at the start of the next cycle until the cycle started

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would be nice to pay instructors for the time they spent preparing lesson plans, or provide lesson plans to the teachers.
