I worked at The Teaching Company full-time

Pros

Free lunches for call center employees

Cons

Management team point fingers on critical business issues, e.g. high rank personnel in one division blamed mid level manager in other division in order to explain his division's disappointing performance, with the senior management approving that practice to cover up the issue on hand which is the company's declining business. Many employees are fired within a year of starting employment, an indication of ineffective hiring or management or employment practices. The company also often replace employees who have worked for a while with new employees with much less wage and experience levels who perform more or less the same work, resulting in business issues and unhappy employees. Company and management make false accusations and threats. Employees could end up having different hours, vacation allowance and work after starting versus what were marketed prior to joining, basically the company treat employees as easily dispensable minions, and they will do anything to get rid of people they don't want.

Advice to Management

Need some management refresh and quality upgrade

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at The Teaching Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Little focus on work quality, so employees don't need to focus so much on work

    Cons

    Have to suck up to your bosses or coworkers as promotion and many other benefits are determined by how you gel with others rather than your talents or contribution. Company has so much trouble to deal with that work environment is not pleasant. Generally boring, though they tend to overwork you and treat employees like slaves.

    Advice to Management

    Revive employee morale

    Pros

    The Teaching Company had flexible scheduling and a well educated and professional staff. There were also opportunities to work with other departments and branch out in responsibility.

    Cons

    Based on the size of the company and the nature of the work, there was not much room for advancement and career growth.
