Featured Review

Current Contractor - Anonymous Contractor

I have been working at Berlitz

Pros

It gives a well-structured language teaching skill. It makes students who want to learn a new language to have more experiences for that language.

Cons

The teaching skill needs instructors to be more sensitive to their students.

Current Employee - Director

I have been working at EF Education First full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

- Everything we do at EF is about helping people build bridges across borders and cultures, spark mutual understanding, and create new opportunities. It's a mission that feels incredibly relevant... right now. - Travel opportunities: I spent more than 3 months traveling abroad last year to some of the most amazing places including Spain, Sweden, UK, France, and Germany. Everyone travels once a year, most travel far more than that. - The people. EF people make coming into work every day energizing and fun. - The benefits. Probably among the best on offer in Greater Boston.

Cons

- EF isn't for everyone; and in particular, folks who are looking for lots of structure and a clear path to promotion on an annual or semi-annual basis. People who aren't a good EF fit probably... won't be happy here.

Advice to Management

Keep it up! Staff events and professional development opportunities were fantastic in 2018. Not surprising that EF consistently ranks in the top 2 on the Globe's Top Places to Work list.
