I have been working at Princeton Review full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

It's a great place to get introduced in the field of test prep. There are a lot of very smart people working there. It is definitely a place filled with younger recent college grads so it's pretty high energy at times.

Cons

This is a position that very much a sales quote with a number you have to hit, but offers very little in terms of additional compensation. If you are young with the ability to relocate to different states or even countries, there are opportunities to move up the food chain. But if you are more settled, there are not as many steps of any ladder to climb.

    I worked at Princeton Review part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary, flexibility. Great pay if you're in college and need some extra money for only a couple of hours of work.

    Cons

    Poor communication with management and office. Lack of trust in teachers. Office was rude (even the students would complain). Many teachers I trained with have left as they were fed up of the office's attitude and negativity.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication and invest in teachers instead of looking for every excuse to weed them out.

    I have been working at Princeton Review part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Depends on what you want out of the work experience. If you need a pretty good salary and a bit of experience, this is a good job. I have recommended many friends because of these "pros" but it isn't a long-term commitment type of job.

    Cons

    If you are looking for applicable skills and growth opportunities, this would be considered more of a stepping stone.
