Growing school, cramped quarters

Teacher (Current Employee) Suzhou, Jiangsu (China)

ProsSalary and benefits package are great, teaching materials are above par, most fellow teachers are easy to get along with, good location vs my living quarters

ConsToo many teacher hires of those with no teaching background, campus student body staff is growing but facilities are not. Senior management is distant and doesn't seem truly invested in staff or its students. Students seem to run the show in many cases.

Advice to Senior ManagementKids need discipline and structure. Rewarding lazy students equally as achieving students is ridiculous. Having no punishment system at all is a detriment to teachers and the "play-by-the-rules" top students. With the extremely high student count, perhaps it's time to build a new school or add on to the current campus somehow (build up?).

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
