Pros

Flexible Schedule, Fun to Work with kids, Compensation reasonable (with opportunities to earn more) and bonus incentives for score increases. also good experience for certain fields (education, etc)

Cons

lack of communication with senior employees, customer service issues- some families are hard to deal with, some kids are not motivated- just trying to throw money at the problem, expect you to be at their beck and call. they dont take into account that we have lives of our own!

Advice to Management

More feedback is necessary- a little motivation would go a long way

    Pros

    It might be a good place for gaining skills and work experience.

    Cons

    It is very much a sales environment, even though it is an educational institution. This lends itself to a high pressure environment where I see more emphasis placed on the sale itself, rather than the pursuit of educational excellence.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management tends to blame rather than lead. If there is something wrong with a team, they tend to look to where they can point the finger instead of taking the lead and moving the team in a more positive direction.
