I worked at Language Link full-time for more than 3 years
Pros – A lot of support from DoSes, some great colleagues, great visa support, offices and classrooms tend to be clean, presentable and professional.
Cons – Absolutely horrendous hours occasionally, some incredibly rude and unprofessional administrators, apartments are not acceptable, although one there's a decent allowance if you decide to forgo company housing.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at Language Link
Pros – This is one of the few ways to work in Russia, if that is your primary goal
Cons – You will quite possible work long hours for low pay. If you get an assignment that requires significant travel time, you will not be compensated for it, or for the often significant amounts of time you spend waiting between classes. If your clients do not come to lessons, Language Link will only pay you for 50% of the time you spend waiting, even if the clients pay for the missed lesson in full. They will force you to work overtime as they choose. In short, the employer will not respect your personal time, and you will not have a strong bargaining position, as you will be dependent on your employer for housing and visa support.
Advice to Senior Management – Show more respect for employees' personal lives.
