    I have been working at Princeton Review full-time

    Pros

    Working as account manager, I got to work with a levels of the organization at once as well as external stakeholders. Good opportunities for growth if you get in at the right time/place with the right manager. I saw someone go from an director of a local office to the regional vice president in the course of a few years. Depending on your role/manager, you can work from home.

    Cons

    Unless you have a manager who is going places, you probably aren't either. And if you happen to have a manager in poor favor with the higher-ups, good luck getting a raise or promotion.

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

    Pros

    Learn techniques for GMAT, GRE etc
    Students grade you, giving you direct feedback from the client
    Learn from the better faculty
    Well stocked library to help you hone your skills
    Well intentioned and well behaved management

    Cons

    Wages poor compared to the work expected. Extra work of going through the students' test reports and giving them feedback not paid for. A lot of constant study and preparation not at all paid for. It is a really losing proposition financially.
    Full timers extremely unhappy as they are overburdened while so many part timers remain under-utilised.
    At times, annual raise was a ridiculous 25 per hour. Also, for TOEFL and IELTS, sometimes no annual raise was given.
    Only one day off.
    Frequent overtime work for full timers
    Opportunities for growth only for full timers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, the pros and cons say it all.
