    I worked at New Oriental (More than a year)

    Pros

    quick promotion, cool experience, leading private educational institute, good for new grads to learn parts of the real world.

    Cons

    no mercy...Employees have almost no benefit, it feels like you have to keep working till the minute you die.. no sick leave or you'll be replaced

    Advice to Management

    be more organized.. maybe it's getting better now, since it's an ever evolving company.

    I worked at New Oriental as a contractor

    Pros

    As far as an English teacher with no degree or experience, the opportunity was valuable and interesting and they were accommodating enough when pushed.

    Cons

    The details of my stay were not well spelled out and I was not as prepared as I could have been. Also, there was no communication with anyone out of my pay grade or real quality assurance with teaching and the like.

    I worked at New Oriental full-time

    Pros

    Talking bout the maxen branch. Easy working pace. Nice teachers. Decent pay. Some of the newer branches have very nice campus and classroom. The comes and goes could be a con but can also be a pro cuz if you work long enough or hard enough, it's easy to get promoted. And the foreign teachers got very good pay compare with the local teachers.

    Cons

    The differentiate of classes is kinda blur. students sometimes got pushed into a class that doesn't really suit themselves. Makes the teaching a little harder sometimes. being a foreign teacher could get very busy sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    pay attention on what staffs and teachers can do but not only on how long they stayed in this school. hr should do their job as an hr but not someone could stick their noses around on other ppls businesses.
