    I worked at Princeton Review part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some flexibility, training, curriculum is solid

    Cons

    Not as flexible as it seems, hourly rate doesn't increase that much from teacher to private tutor.

    Advice to Management

    After a year or two, private tutor pay should have a scheduled increase.

    I worked at Princeton Review part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This used to be an amazing company to work for. Lots of smart, fun people to work with all the time. I loved everything about my job for the many years I worked there even in the face of constant turnover and financial troubles.

    Cons

    Now that it's in the hands of ST Unitas, the company has completely imploded from within. All of the top talent has left, morale is shattered, and there is really no hope left for a once great company.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the talent pool you have rather than try to squeeze them or do things yourself.

    I worked at Princeton Review part-time

    Pros

    None at all. Literally awful place.

    Cons

    Company is in shambles. Management is horrible, literally went through 5-6 new managers in a 9 months time span. Each manager promises you something and then you get a new manager and they don’t keep the promise that the last manager made you. It’s rude and the way the higher management communicates to the lower level employees is awful. No regard for their livelihood.

    Advice to Management

    Do better.
