    I have been working at Kumon North America part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The learning experience is great for younger employees who have not received either a high school diploma or a college degree.

    Cons

    The hours usually are quite limited, leading to smaller paychecks and less opportunity for growth.

    Create more opportunities for employees to grow within the company so that it is more attractive to higher quality employees.

    Pros

    Work is always straight forward. I'm an assistant at Kumon and the atmosphere is pleasant. They have nice children and workers too.

    Cons

    For an assistant, the work could be extremely repetitive. We grade papers or input grades all the time. It could be tiring.

    Advice to Management

    I love the management. They try to accommodate the workers according to their schedules. I don't really have other advice for management.
