    I worked at inlingua International

    Pros

    They give you some liberties to teach when you are available. Very flexible hours and good ongoing training.

    Cons

    If they do not call you with classes, you do not work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure instructors are able to get classes when hired or at least get called about time availability more often so as to makensure contact.

    Pros

    Well, at least they pay you (even if it's late), and Moscow is an exciting, fun city

    Cons

    Working contract that is unfair towards teacher, not much help in acquiring visa, accommodation not as promised (dirty, far, falling apart), split schedule, disorganized, become nasty when you complain to them about the working conditions and threaten to alert your former employers (references)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start over. Please.

    Former Employee - English Teacher in Quito (Ecuador)

    I worked at inlingua International full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - I taught in Quito, Ecuador, and met such great students. Most of mine were professionals and I would travel to their offices for lessons.
    - Good curriculum with the freedom to adapt it to the needs of your students.
    - My office had a great staff who were as supportive as they could be. Some went above and beyond to help staff get acclimated to a new country.
    - Trainings were either free or paid, I can't remember which, and we were given sufficient materials and could use the copier.
    - I was paid at a higher level than some beginning teachers due to my degree in education and my TEFL certificate (from Oxford for a 60-hour class.)

    Cons

    - Getting paid only once a month! Really difficult!
    - You really had to push to get enough assignments and hours. Many teachers worked at other schools or did private lessons to supplement their income.
    - Some students cancelled their lessons all the time. Staff was generally helpful in these situations, though. And you still got paid if they did it within a certain time frame.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to make the payment process easier and more frequent for employees. Perhaps a webform where teachers can log hours and progress reports, and more online curriculum supplements for students and teachers.

    I worked at inlingua International full-time

    Pros

    The only pro is that you can get some real life experience teaching.

    Cons

    Pay. Working conditions. Corporate culture. You name it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay a living wage. Stop hiring anyone with a heartbeat that is a native speaker.

    I worked at inlingua International as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Decent enough pay when the work was available. Good variety of companies to work at and places to go. The contracts were short enough that you wouldn't get bored at one location.

    Cons

    There were certainly some lean months. The short(ish) contracts were also a downside, when it rained it poured, but you had to be prepared to last out the times between contracts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to know what is on the horizon work-wise so you can be prepared.
