    I worked at C2 Education part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay for tutoring (less than other area tutoring companies, but you get to stay in a central location rather than travel). Semi-flexible hours (but stand your ground). Educational staff is committed to helping students.

    Cons

    Terrible, terrible business culture. Administration and leadership are geared towards revenue and sales at the total cost of integrity, service quality, and workplace satisfaction. No real opportunities for development or advancement. You're helping the privileged, affluent families get further ahead. Evening tutoring can become annoying, especially if you wanted to have a social life.

    Advice to Management

    Promote educators into legitimate leadership/management positions and LISTEN to them. Create opportunities to develop/promote your tutors (even with incremental salary bumps over time). Realize that service quality has to be pursued and given attention, not just sales.

    Pros

    Good benefits/incentives. Decent salary.

    Cons

    Schedule - hours are 1-9:30 during the school year; 11-7:30 during the summer.
    High-stress: as a Center Director, you manage EVERYTHING in your center...everything is your responsibility with little support.
    If you're not making budget, you're out. The budgets are never intuitive

    Pros

    Center Director always pressures students to sign up for more. Students don't like that attitude.

    Cons

    My center closed without enough notice to students or myself. I was informed my center was closing 2 days prior. Parents were mad for short notice. Management does not communicate enough.

    Advice to Management

    Tutors should be treated better. We need set schedule and be paid better. Pay is very bad.

    I worked at C2 Education part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Students are usually nice, materials are provided for you, and scheduling is taken care of. If you are a good tutor and personable, you will get as many hours as you can handle (without going full time.)

    Cons

    Center managers can be somewhat disorganized, and (I) at least, was not compensated for the 30 minute planning period you are required to take before a full day, which you are supposed to be. Depending on your locale, you may be shuffling around a lot between centers. Most of these are minor issues, but a lot of them tend to pile up.

    I have been working at C2 Education (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -great center directors and co-workers at certain centers
    -fairly flexible with scheduling
    -they have a good mission on paper, but need to stick to it in reality
    -pay is fair for teachers

    Cons

    -transparent communication at all levels
    -on going training and better training to begin with
    -be realistic about budget and provide support
    -value your employees to prevent such a high turnover especially since they are working such "off" hours
    -offer full time teaching or teaching and other center other work in a full time capacity for those interested
    -experience at each center if fully dependent on the center director which could make or break your experience, so it's best to have a more streamline approach as it is corporate owned
    - the best employees leave because they feel undervalued

    Advice to Management

    -revenue is important but don't forget the true "value" of education
    -provide support for employees at all levels
    - work on a different business model
    - updated marketing tactics
    -transparency in communication
    - allow teacher to have breaks if they are teaching three sessions (6 hours in the evening with no meal breaks) and work a better system for prep time
