    I worked at Sylvan Learning Centers full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Kept very busy, everyday was something different. Students, families and co workers (except management) made working there worth it. Enjoyed the "type" of work.

    Cons

    Poor management, extremely low pay, long hours, cheated out of "paid" holidays, overworked employees. Executive Directors do not care about employees/customers, just the bottom line. No appreciation for employees. No life / work balance. Use and abuse everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to appreciate employees and treat them better.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
