    I have been working at EF English First full-time

    Pros

    Plenty of learning opportunities for motivated staff, although you have to seek these out. Good for meeting like-minded people living abroad.

    Cons

    Salary is very poor in comparison to competitors', and they mis-represent this on job adverts. Teachers who don't pass probation are expected to pay for their own flights home, after putting a non-refundable deposit down on an apartment.

    I worked at EF English First

    Pros

    Everything, management, platform, training, you need to be certified in teaching English as a second language which is a plus because it helps you prepare for the job. Best job in the world. Students are awesome and so is the company. Their platform is easy to work with. IT department fixes anything immediately. Plenty of training and help with anything. The parents are great. I truly love my job.

    Cons

    None, I have zero problems with the early hours and late hours, you know this when you apply so there’s no need to complain about it!
