Usually a great academics team. Fairly flexible schedule Good work life balance The students
You can earn more in fast food. This company has no respect for the teachers. None at all. The teachers are the most poorly treated, followed by the students. The fastest revolving door I've ever seen in any company (extremely high turnover). Very unstable hours Very toxic management No benefits1

Great coworkers and managers and students. Clean and safe atmosphere. Great location in downtown Boston.
Too much unpaid work! I would have loved to continue working here if I had been treated like a real full time employee. I worked from 7:50am till 4pm Monday through Friday (three classes plus grading plus lesson planning) and I could not afford to live in Boston.

You get to be creative and work with International students
The work is seasonal, only during the Spring & Summer. In most roles only summer.

there was nothing great about this place, i guess paychecks were on time but thats standard
this is a terrible workplace, for such a crappy environment you can work at a similar place in retail or at a restaurant but making more. if you knew the employees you would know many of the positive reviews may be fake. i'm sure no one has forgotten when the employee survey scores were so low that global and regional HR were sent to the times square office to inquire lol2

I enjoyed the students from all over the world, here in Boston to study English.
Using the software to record student progress was time consuming.
