    I worked at Huntington Learning Centers part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Steady direction to gain experience as a tutor.
    - Teaching material provided and prepared.

    Cons

    - Low pay. This is only a problem if you're an experienced tutor, which I wasn't. So it's not entirely a con.

    I worked at Huntington Learning Centers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Program seems to really work

    Cons

    Worked for this company in the Corporate office in Oradell 2017. Management acts esoteric . Corporate employees are trained to become robotic. Sr Management are followers and have no regard for the amount of work they pile on you with the expectation of no work life balance. Culture is suffocating and phony . Please be aware of who you share information with. Retaliation and contamination is venomous along with favoritism as long as you give this company your life.

    Advice to Management

    Once the culture is changed you will retain good people

    I worked at Huntington Learning Centers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    "To give every student the best education possible". This is what Huntington Learning Center stands for and it delivers every single day that their centers are open. Working as a Center Director alongside with dedicated professionals helping students achieve their educational goals, I got to see first hand the incredible changes and results students would achieve. The environment and positive culture that the staff creates is what makes all the hard work pay off. It is truly a great place to work at, aside from the opportunities for career advancement and professional development, being entrusted with other's children and delivering the results that the company holds dear to its heart is what it makes HLC stand out above any other tutoring companies.

    Cons

    If one looks really hard to find flaws with Huntington Learning Center, they may find them, however there are no cons in working for HLC.

    Advice to Management

    Management has been excellent to take action towards bettering the work environment and overall satisfaction of its staff, by listening to what the employees are saying. Keep up the good work!
