    Warm Community

    Pros

    There is no warmer, more welcoming community than the one created by this company. Employees can feel like their contributions are valued.

    Cons

    As with most ESL gigs, the salary is a little on the low side, but that is an industry standard and the employer is aware of it, so the health benefits and the flexibility of the schedule are very generous to balance it out.

    Pros

    I'd been teaching at EC for a while. It's a fun place to teach, not stressful and everyone you work with is really great. The location is top notch, can't beat it.

    Cons

    Technology often doesn't work and the indoor space is a bit run down and out of date

    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.

    the worst place you can ever work

    Pros

    there was nothing great about this place, i guess paychecks were on time but thats standard

    Cons

    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 lol

    Pros

    Good benefits, great school management.

    Cons

    Teaching is not a 'climb the corporate ladder' job. So zero upward movement.
