No opinion of CEO

Pros

Good benefits, great colleagues, fun work environment. The students tend to be wealthy and know what they want, but will do the homework asked of them.

Cons

Few opportunities to move beyond part-time, management is more than willing to lay people off after the busy summer season.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to what the teachers ask for/request - they are the ones who satisfy the students and bring in your paycheck!

    Pros

    Great team, decent benefits, and a general feel good company to work for. Many people there for many years, so wealth of knowledge.

    Cons

    Lack of support and competence from the top at times, and lack of work life balance at times. Great otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    No words to offer since the office in NY was relocated to GA and therefore advice is no longer relevant.
