I worked at Catalyst Prep full-time (More than a year)
Very satisfying and rewarding work based on the ability to help students get into college and learn important skills. The course material and company culture is based on a humorous approach to learning, which makes day-to-day experiences exciting. Catalyst offered a great work-life balance, and very very fair compensation. The people there are energetic and fun to work with--the energy trickles down from CEO and upper management, as well as the "start up" culture, which hasn't waned, despite growth and success.
There are very few cons to speak of--working with great people, and doing interesting work, in beautiful Santa Monica is hard to beat. I would say that, as a Director of Instruction, having to manage tutors remotely via Skype and email proved to be difficult at times. I mostly prefer face-to-face interactions... But I understand that it is simply a product of the circumstances and industry, and not the company values. Regardless, the in-person interactions in the office were always great and the CEO goes out of his way to set up Employee Nights, etc., to promote personal interactions.
Advice to Management
Keep up the annual bowling night and karaoke night. Also, don't lose that "start-up" edge as you continue to grow.
