    Pros

    good experience, good pay assuming they give you enough hours

    Cons

    poor communication, treat staff as disposable

    Advice to Management

    treat your staff better, train them and tell them what you want instead of getting mad when they don't magically know, communicate overall better and if you need to let someone go at least have the nerve to do it in person and not via email

    I worked at ACI Institute part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The schedules are normally regular after-school hours (3-6pm) during school years. They pay is good if they think you can handle the students and the material.

    Cons

    Management can be disorganized at times. Long hours during summer with minimum break times.

    Advice to Management

    Be more organized. Be more prepared and tell the tutors or teachers what they expect before handing them the materials.

    I have been working at ACI Institute part-time

    Pros

    Some of the kids are fine. They show up every day. The more kids that show up, the more hours the teachers get. The more hours the teachers get, the more money they get paid.

    Cons

    Most of the kids are not fine. You can tell they don't want to be there. It makes you not want to be there either.

    Advice to Management

    Forcing kids to go to an after-school program right after they finish with school for the day is the perfect way to get them to hate everything.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at ACI Institute part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good learning experience.
    Get to work with kids (if you enjoy that).
    Learn how to do sales.
    Learn a lot about the education system.
    Free company meals during holidays and after our seminars.

    Cons

    They make you do whatever they ask.
    Not always clear with instruction.
    Controlling, rude, sometimes disrespectful.
    Secretary staff are treated like servants.
    A lot of gossip.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to train your staff better and do not treat us like lap dogs. We are not here to do whatever you want whenever you say it. Don't expect us to know how to do everything when you haven't properly briefed us or trained us. There's a reason you have staff quit on you so frequently, you don't treat secretaries well. Making us clean restrooms and the dealing with the cleanliness of the office in general was also not in the job description. Please hire proper staff for that. I'm all for constructive criticism but sometimes you guys are straight up rude to your staff, not okay.
