    I worked at Wall Street English full-time

    Pros

    Its an amazing organization. The company is located in 20+ companies so you can transfer after 1 year. If you are a new teacher its a good place to start as almost classes are already prewritten for you including the materials. As a teacher you teach all levels so you get lots of teaching experience fast.

    Cons

    It can become boring as you teach the similar classes everyday but you spend less time planning every week.

    Advice to Management

    always have continual training for all staff.

        I worked at Wall Street English part-time

        Pros

        Worked outside the US. Great experience to work with foreign students.

        Cons

        Foreign teachers treated this as a very non-permanent job. We had a high teacher turnover which slowed the learning process for many students.

        I have been working at Wall Street English part-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Colleagues are great, most of the students are nice, don't need to be a real teacher. If you enjoy teaching then you will have fun.

        Cons

        Salary Unprofessional management Some students complain a lot and are just plain rude You're now allowed to give people real advice on how to learn the language, you're supposed to say that they need to stay in WSE even though wall street isn't for everyone.

        Advice to Management

        Hire real teachers and pay them well
