    Friendly environment but uncaring company

    Teacher (Former Employee)
    Tokyo (Japan)

    Pros-Friendly relaxed environment
    -Reasonable training for the first year.
    -enjoyable teaching method
    -community of teachers
    -Relaxed dress code

    Cons- Lots of unpaid additional work. Demo classes, special events, and changes can be added to your teaching schedule at any point with little notice, no negotiation and no compensation.
    - fixed pay rate, no yearly pay increases, and very low bonuses.
    - split schedules sometimes with very late finishes.
    - no room for growth.
    - no sick days or other benefits.
    - treat everybody the same regardless of time invested at the company or level of experience.

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue your employees.
    Recognise and utilise the skills of your employees.
    Implement a pay structure for teachers wishing to continue with the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
