    I worked at Boston Reed College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Teaching is always a great experience; part time hours so I could work more than one job; pay was good and supplies were almost always spot on.

    Cons

    school was closed in Nor Cal and I was no longer able to teach through them.

    Advice to Management

    reopen or give good reccomendations for part time teachers to other similar schools

    I worked at Boston Reed College (More than a year)

    Pros

    Best reason to work for boston reed was the independence and pay

    Cons

    Downside was that my location was a good hour drive from my house and it was on the weekends

    Advice to Management

    School shut down probably due to lack of communication with students and teachers, and teachers and corporate

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Boston Reed College part-time

    Pros

    Work independently. Decent pay. Great second job (most classes are in the evenings two days a week or on a Saturday).

    Cons

    Long hours at home that are unpaid. Hard to get full-time hours (if not impossible; I think the company does not want to pay benefits). The school is under new ownership which seems determined to put out a lower quality student. After years of loyal service, the company decided to substantially decrease everyone's pay.

    Advice to Management

    A substantial pay cut will drive many of your "valued" employees to new jobs.

    I have been working at Boston Reed College as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    independent, base pay was once excellent

    Cons

    do not have the instructors back when dealing with students, more concerned about the bottom line, do not supply the appropriate equipment for lecturing and skills lab, students complained that they were led to believe one thing and then they found out differently

    Advice to Management

    the huge cut in pay is not beneficial to the retention of exceptionally dedicated instructors. the hybrid online/in person is a good idea if given enough time to actually help students that don't understand a few key concepts. Compensate your instructors who spend hours on more and more required paperwork and tutoring sessions
