I worked at Princeton Review part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- fun job
- decent pay
- easy to do part time
- hours were flexible
- students were great!

Cons

- only a minor con, but some prep was needed (but once you taught your first class there was much less to do for following classes)
- not a reliable source of income as you were not guaranteed classes from year to year
- company became disorganized when the Vancouver management was restructured and shifted to Toronto

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- For the majority of the time that I was working there there was a great manager who worked in our Vancouver office, but she was let go for company restructuring. She made working there a great experience. It became a little frustrating after that point as anyone that I could get assistance from was in Toronto. It was much easier to deal with day to day questions with someone face to face as opposed to talking to a person I have never met over email. It made the company seem uncaring and impersonal.

    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
