    I worked at Princeton Review full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The opportunities to work with an ever-changing group of students is amazingly rewarding.

    Cons

    Management acted like teenagers going through some wacked-out hormonal period. Poor customer service on their part made working with clients a balancing act of teaching/tutoring and fixing basic customer service problems (for example: clients never receiving score reports, repeated calls/emails to office staff going unanswered, payments not processed, phone calls being ended abruptly by staff hanging up on clients).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have staff that are amazing and staff that are drinking out of red-plastic-cups during the day... you need to figure out who is actually doing the work and who is taking credit for it.

    I have been working at Princeton Review part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -working with some of the smartest people I've ever met
    -flexible hours
    -excellent pay
    -the service you provide really works!!!

    Cons

    -work can be inconsistent, especially in the winter
    -polarized classes can happen (half the class is really smart, the other half is not)
    -sometimes they'll get into a bind and need you to teach a class at the last minute
    -but...it's pretty hard to find things to complain about!
