I have been working at Princeton Review as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

pay is good considering no experience is really necessary
opportunity to be promoted and take on new tasks
rewarding to see your students' scores improve

Cons

you only get paid 10-20% of what the clients pay which feels inappropriate at times
random hours and workloads
sometimes too much of a "one size fits all" approach that you have to teach
management doesn't seem to know as much as some tutors do about the actual strategies - but they should sit in on training
you will likely not know your colleagues

Advice to Management

more benefits/bonuses based on outcomes, more

    I worked at Princeton Review full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the people you work with day-to-day are wonderful. Lots of people to assist you if you have any questions or need advice. Room to advance in certain areas.

    Cons

    Terrible customer service policies, disorganized management, lots of corporate changes. No training was provided initially, lots of time spent doing projects that had to be re-done later. Takes a long time to get materials.
