    I worked at New Oriental

    Pros

    quick money, you get paid by the classes, and get quick cash. some times you can get over 70k during summer time

    Cons

    very stressful pain teaching, you need to deliver classes for 10 hours each day for 7 days! many teachers got sick.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    very ununited firm, all the schools are working individually, they can boss the teachers around, but do nothing to improve the living style for the teachers.

    Former Employee - American ESL Teacher in Beijing, Beijing (China)

    I worked at New Oriental full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Smart and attentive students! I think the students are really bright and this made the job easier to handle!

    Cons

    I definitely would not recommend this company, because you are told it will be like Wall Street English or EF where you stay in one office and teach. But literally they force you to run all across town all day to teach their clients all over Beijing and you spend too much time on the road. Thus you cannot even get the full 40 hours per week that you want, because all the time is spent on the road commuting. At the time of this review, American English teachers are getting paid 200 RMB per hour, which is 178 RMB after tax. You only get about 20 hours per week after running around all across town. Beijing is huge. There simply is no way to have a 40 hour week unless you beg your manager to just work in a camp-like setting, but those opportunities are pretty much nada

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the needs of your foreign teachers. And give us a RAISE!

    I worked at New Oriental

    Pros

    It is a big company so there's a lot of resources

    Cons

    After the IPO, they're just too much regulations that are not related to teaching

    Summer EFL Intern

    Former Employee - EFL in Wuhan, Hubei (China)
    Former Employee - EFL in Wuhan, Hubei (China)

    I worked at New Oriental as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The "furnace" city of Wuhan, relaxed job requirements, general freedom of teaching style/content as long as students are satisfied

    Cons

    What the company needs is vaguely Western looking people to put in front of groups of 1-30 Chinese students, most of which are exhausted from their 8-10 hour schooldays and in consequence totally unresponsive, in order to milk their parents for tuition money. This is alright for what it is. Just don't expect otherwise and you can have an ok time

    I have been working at New Oriental

    Pros

    office location is nice, get a chance to work with many hard working people, gain some knowledge of the education market

    Cons

    the working atmosphere can be strange sometimes, for it is slow and fast at the same time and the same place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    some people are great worker, some people may not. appears to be hard working does not mean anything. efficiency may be more important.
