    J'ai travaillé chez EF English First en Contrat Permanent (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    It's a good entry point to the large world of teaching English abroad. Compared to jobs in certain public schools and universities there's a lot of structure and resources. Salary and Benefits improve quite significantly over the first few years. Although promotion opportunities are not necessarily there.

    Inconvénients

    It's a big company and it is profit-driven. Management rarely understand beyond the here and now. Any investment in the future happiness and satisfaction of employees will be laughed at and dismissed. Vacation (in China) are not enough to truly disconnect, but they after a year or two you can count on them letting head home for several weeks
    Note however that all Shane schools are different, and since management plays a huge role in how comfortable foreign teachers end up being, I would suggest google your school before signing anything. Or check if it's on the Foreign Teacher Union or if it's in China look it up on secondlanguage.world

    Conseils à la direction

    When many teachers quit because of work conditions, don't just assume that other teachers will pick up the work permanently without expecting compensation...

    Avantages

    It was an unforgettable experience and I met different people from other schools. I hope this kind of event could be more held in the furture. Everything was perfect.

    Inconvénients

    The organiser might need to contact the participants one day in advance in case some people forgot their registration for this event.

    Je travaille chez EF English First à plein temps (Pendant plus de 8 ans)

    Avantages

    The work schedule works out perfectly for me. My weekends are on work days and a lot of places are not crowded. Also, I really enjoy teaching adults and seeing them progress in their English study. I have also met a lot of interesting students and teachers with a wide range of experiences.

    Inconvénients

    Sometimes the students expect too much from you and seem to think that the courses are a magic pill. Like I mentioned above, I have stayed for a long time mostly because of the people (students and staff) and not really for the benefits and compensation.

    Conseils à la direction

    There should be more concrete recognition to the teachers as I have seen a lot of teachers become disappointed and leave the company.

    Avantages

    Team building events, constant training, good certification programs, and employee support services.

    Schedule in the summer and winter is very stressful because of long hours. Choosing living accommodations within proximity of school is not always affordable.

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep the relationships between teachers (local and international), CCs, PAs, and TAs as positive as possible. Keep up the goos work with employee team building efforts.

    Avantages

    Full arrival support, good salary (I can live comfortably and save in Shanghai), company expects more from employees than other esl positions so the offer more events and freebies

    Inconvénients

    Changes can sometimes happen with little to no notice (sometime the fault of the company, sometimes the country, but the company must do things by the book so the hardship sometimes falls on the employee (be flexible)

    Conseils à la direction

    Do not consider turnover a normality. It is something to be fixed. You can see by the overly negative reviews on here that certain things should be worked on (other parts of these reviews are exaggerations and normal internet hate). Compare the turnover of adult and kids schools and there is a pretty big difference and reason for it.

    J'ai travaillé chez EF English First en Contrat Permanent (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    There's so many opportunities for K&T Shanghai teachers. I was really lucky to have been placed here. Lots of teacher events, free Mandarin classes at HQ. Local teachers are lovely and very welcoming (as were the international teachers because we all have the same mindset).

    Inconvénients

    Management was different according to the school you went to. Senior teachers and DOSes are promoted just because they have seniority - not necessarily skill. Turnover is also quite high, so through my 2 years with EF, the groups of international teachers in my school COMPLETELY changed.

    Conseils à la direction

    EF pay isn't the best in the EF training school industry. It would be nice to see the salary package increase for teachers, proportionally as the housing market prices increase.
