    Pros

    set your own schedule, the materials are there for you

    Cons

    IMPOSSIBLE to get students, Unless you want to work for less than 10 dollars/hour, and even then you will have problems to get more than 3 students. The company takes a considerable commission from you, so out of those possible "10 dollars" you get maybe 8, talk about bad pay... The students are not willing to pay, that is the reality. How should you compete and get reviews? you work basically for free, and did I mention the trial lessons are not paid? I did almost 20+ hours of trial lessons and I received 2 dollars in my account after, all goes to preply. My advice, if you stay, just get the students on your own outside the platform once they are comfortable with you, that only after you get enough students if any.

    Good company that values employees

    Pros

    * Company cares about its employees and improves on day-by-day basis both as business and as a workplace. It grew from one Kyiv-based office to international one. * Colleagues are very friendly and willing to help. * I joined the company as a Middle Software Developer and managed to grow to Tech Lead Manager. * Company operates in data-driven manner trying to launch features based on numbers, not on ego. This means running small AB-test experiments.

    Cons

    Approach with small ab-tests may not be comfortable for any engineer

    Pros

    They have a good team

    Cons

    - the payment isn't equivalent to the job requirements - the management doesn't care about your mental or physical wellbeing - the team leads has zero knowledge on how to provide feedback, and you're always blamed for everything. - the job is very stressful, and the targets is literally unachievable, and you will be compared with your teammates during the 1-1s, and you get asked to discuss your weakness points with your colleagues. - the overtime is craaaaaaaazy, it's almost daily thing and the TLs will judge you for not being able to do overtime, and the agents are using this a way to compensate for the low income. - the break isn't paid. - the schedule is up to the management and could be changed without notice and you should adapt. - no real feedback -

    Lack of processes, micromanaging

    Pros

    Good office environment, good culture and values.

    Cons

    It seems that leadership doesn't have a clear vision for the work future. They should trust the people that they hired to do the work instead of constantly micromanage and make decisions based on their personal opinions instead of the business needs.

    Pros

    The company really lives by it's values and it's mission to help people learn more effectively. The culture of experimentation is really interesting and enables you to innovate and try new things, backed by a hypothesis. There's a really great balance between being data-led and creative. Everyone's warm and friendly. Employees and management care about their people and seem to understand that happier people=better work.

    Cons

    Barcelona office is a bit full... looks like we'll need a bigger one soon ;P Having joined during covid I'm yet to see all the benefits of office life

    Pros

    At your convenient time. You can teach when you want. That is based on your free schedule

    Cons

    Cuts too much percentage from the hourly rate a student pays. And it's not consistent in payments as it depends on the number of book lessons you have
