    I worked at Princeton Review part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Minimum requested pay met without hesitation

    Cons

    Unpaid training, and offsite assignments are not granted pay for travel time (sometimes 1hr plus)

    Advice to Management

    Paid training is a must-- hourly rates for test prep instructors are rising (along with the entire education industry in China) and any cuts in pay for the tutor offer little incentive to stay when many local companies will cover all costs.

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

    Pros

    Learn techniques for GMAT, GRE etc
    Students grade you, giving you direct feedback from the client
    Learn from the better faculty
    Well stocked library to help you hone your skills
    Well intentioned and well behaved management

    Cons

    Wages poor compared to the work expected. Extra work of going through the students' test reports and giving them feedback not paid for. A lot of constant study and preparation not at all paid for. It is a really losing proposition financially.
    Full timers extremely unhappy as they are overburdened while so many part timers remain under-utilised.
    At times, annual raise was a ridiculous 25 per hour. Also, for TOEFL and IELTS, sometimes no annual raise was given.
    Only one day off.
    Frequent overtime work for full timers
    Opportunities for growth only for full timers

    Advice to Management

    None, the pros and cons say it all.
