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

    Pros

    The company seemed to be respectful and appreciative of their teachers until they brought on-board new "directors", who never bothered to read the employment contracts they signed with tutors and started making "new policy" announcements which contravene their legal documents, such as they won't be paying stand-by rate, even though in their formal employment agreement they stated that a stand-by rate would be paid, or they announced "revisions to tutors' pay rate" which means that they would lower hourly pay rate. Hence legal documents mean nothing to the company management who are arrogant and extremely incompetent.

    Cons

    Some kids are a pleasure to teach.

    Advice to Management

    Your ignorance of the law is no excuse.

    I worked at UUabc part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None - but you will get some money from them.

    Cons

    1. They are always late in paying my salary.
    2. They are always complaining and sending threatening emails to teachers.
    3. Their computer and course ware has numerous problems - so it freezes up or shuts down during lesson time.
    4. This company only care about profits, and does not care about teachers, so they are late or completely ignore teacher's requests or suggestions.
    5. Lastly, they think teachers are nothing more than cheap robots to abuse and mistreat.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your teachers better, and maybe you'll get better results!
