    I have been working at Varsity Tutors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you're looking for a place that truly puts its employees first and has an unmatched culture, then look no further. The amount of potential and opportunity is uncapped. The company has a great foundation, which makes you feel good about working there.

    Cons

    The con is a pro...good luck with sticking to a diet. There hasn't been a week in which either breakfast/lunch hasn't been provided. And I didn't mention the snacks and drinks that are constantly stocked.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the coaching and positive reinforcement with your staff. Its truly encouraging knowing that leadership is invested in the growth and success of other individuals.
