I worked at Princeton Review

Pros

Some really great, funny, smart people used to work there.
Felt like we were helping students to beat the system.

Cons

Crazy management once Bain invested in the company.
Extremely poor leadership and management at the senior level.
Terrible morale and zero fun left.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior management needs to get their heads out of the clouds and start treating people like they matter. Most talent has already flown the coop.

    A great place for a college student, needs a little more structure.

    Pros

    Great hourly pay, extensive training really makes you feel prepared to teach in front of a class. Great resume builder and can help with self confidence and leadership skills. Make your own hours, enthusiastic staff.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of the job, you are often on your own in unfamiliar teaching sites when issues arise. Office staff can be helpful but you are often dealing with problems on your own. Can't get enough hours to be full time. Somewhat unorganized and there is pretty much NO job monitoring other than student reports, which means you will never be sure what you are doing right or wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep in closer contact with your teachers about how things are going. Give clear instructions and more time for cross-training. Give out the newest versions of the manuals, it is incredibly frustrating to have a different book than all your students.

    I have been working at Princeton Review

    Pros

    I worked with PR before I went to medical school and now I"m back after my first two years. It's a great part-time opportunity and you can do as little as you want or as much as you want. Before I left, I did like 3-4 classes at a time and now that I'm also studying I have only taken on 1-2 classes. There are so many things you can do like teach the classes, proctor tests, hold marketing events, be a private tutor. You get paid for everything - any extra help sessions you hold, emailing students, preparing for the classes at home, checking essays, etc (at a lesser amount). Communication with the office is awesome - all through email and they try their best to give you everything you need.

    Cons

    If you work far from the office, it might be hard because you have to go pick up the books and materials every time. You can get paid for mileage though so it's not so bad just time consuming if you have other jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More staff in the office because it seems like they are overworked. More meet and greet of the teachers because I don't really know any of the other teachers and what their experiences are like dealing with parents or the office, etc.
