      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Some teachers that really care about the students but their hands are tied by upper management

      Cons

      Upper management who sells programs no nothing about education Company policy is to switch teacher every session which is counterproductive to child's progress Very low pay=less skilled teachers #1 priority is sales, not student progress

      Pros

      Typical slow periods of time to catch up on work.

      Cons

      Low pay. Often asked to work through lunch. Salary is 40 hours a week, you’ll typically work 50. Cooperate policy is more like a guideline.

      Pros

      The program really does help kids learn and catch up or boost their SAT/ACT scores, the teachers go above and beyond for students, quiet working environment

      Cons

      The FT hours are terrible (typically 10:30-8:30 Mon-Thurs with alternating Fridays and Saturday). Lots of responsibilities on FT staff for low pay (and, for most franchise employees, no benefits). Was brought on to a company center complete with benefits, bonuses, and paid training - all of that is gone now. The profit motive is strong and the pay for both FT staff and PT teachers is insultingly low.

      Lots of potential, but they just don't get it and probably never will

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Not a lot of planning or prep Friendly co-workers Great feeling when the kids succeed

      Cons

      Pay is low - barely above minimum wage for tutors, most of whom have teaching licenses and sometimes graduate degrees. And they hide from p/t staff who have been there a long time with little or no raises that they are attracting new staff by paying them higher wages then the "veteran tutors". Place is badly mismanaged due to constant staff (and even management) turnover caused by low pay and inconsistent policies that change as management changes. Too often tutors came only to find out their student had cancelled and overworked, overpressured management forgot to call and let them know. Now all of the NYC area "corporate owned" centers are being franchised which has caused even more chaos. Corporate greed requires many centers to be open on Sundays, but there is no management on Sundays, causing a lot of chaotic situations. Centers are often open about 2 hours later than they should be again due to 'greed', what happens is the center will often have just 2 students for the last 1-2 hours and if one of them cancels, the tutor of the cancelled student has to stay (with pay however) so that (per company rules) there are two adults present to close the center for the night. The fundamentals of how the company works are sound and if done right the business would be highly successful, however, overt greed and gross mismanagement has long poisoned the potential of this company.
