    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Good working hours, friendly people (many of whom are students as well). Work is clearly explained, with good filing systems. Flexibility throughout the day and appreciation of work life balance

    Cons

    Generally, I didn't feel especially challenged in the day to day work as an admin assistant. Would have welcomed more mentoring.

    Advice to Management

    Suggest more regular staff emails and perhaps a newsletter to keep everyone up to date about progressions in the workplace

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Working as a tutor gives good pay and little pressure. It is a fun and rewarding job and fits in well with existing studies you are undertaking.

    Cons

    The biggest problem is with poorly developed tutoring materials. If the course co-ordinator works hard to develop good material, it is a pleasure to teach it.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great but needs more checks to ensure that the quality of tutoring materials is of a high standard.
