I worked at Language Studies International full-time for more than a year
Pros – They provide text books and the curricula so planning is minimal. Great students from around the world. The managers were very allow the teachers a lot of freedom and this is a definite plus. There was a feeling of mutual trust and respect between teachers and management. Plenty of social outings and the management understood the value of field trips for students.
Cons – Salary could be better. Provide more teaching tools such as iPads/projectors. Computers should be updated.
Advice to Senior Management – Provide funds for professional development and give company sponsored bonuses. When I worked there, our director gave us bonuses out of her own account.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
