    Avantages

    I've been working for EF for around 18 months now as a Kids & Teens teacher and I truly recommend it as a great company to work for. If you are looking for a long term career and to progress they are very supportive, and there are clear career paths you can choose to follow, with opportunities to earn more and take on more roles to gain experience.

    EF also offers teachers the chance to take full funded qualifications such as the Cert TESOL or Dip TESOL. EF also offers their own long distance qualifications, and supports you in taking teaching qualifications such as the TKTs.

    Another very important pro, particularly working for EF in China, is that they sort out everything with your working Visa for you. All I have to do, is hand my passport in and they organise everything. This is very unusual here in China for a company to do this and makes life so much easier and takes away this stress from you.

    They also offer new teachers a 10000 arrival loan to help you set up, and provide a lot of support with finding accommodation and settling in. You are given a mentor at your school, and there is a team of experienced teacher ambassadors on hand to help you.

    These are just a few of the pros of working for EF!

    Inconvénients

    The hours can be seen as a con, as often you will need to work weekends and evenings. However, if you stay longer with the company there can sometimes be opportunities to adapt this to suit your needs. This is only really for Kids & Teens teachers, as other departments have varying hours.

    Conseils à la direction

    Sometimes the EF training can become a little monotonous, which can often feel like we are just going through the motions and ticking boxes. It would be great to adapt the training's to make them more relevant to teacher's daily work lives and what teacher's really want to gain knowledge and experience in.

    Avantages

    I truly recommend you to attend TRT's Teacher Event where you can try different things and meet fantastic people. I had an amazing experience in joining Foodie Night and I really love the food there!

    Inconvénients

    Hope there can be more teachers involved in the TRT's Event.

    Avantages

    - Friendly driver who listened to the groups' needs/was very organised
    - Really enjoyed the lunch provided
    - Easy process to get ski kit and get on the slopes as quickly as possible
    - Lots of time given on the ski field

    Inconvénients

    - No instructor for first-timers
    - Group split off and didn't really stay together
    - No group leader other than the driver (he couldn't go onto the ski field)

    Conseils à la direction

    An instructor would have helped first-timers to get to grips with skiing very quickly. Photos are also what people want from this trip - a group leader could have been in charge to take photos.

    Avantages

    Great place to work if you need some extra international/teaching experience. I signed up for this reason and got exactly what I bargained for. They also give adequate support for international teachers in terms of getting adjusted to life in China. Plus, they throw occasional company-wide social activities that are fun and totally free, which is nice.

    Inconvénients

    The pay is pretty meager, the hours are long, and the work is stressful. Of course, this isn't surprising as this is mostly an entry-level experience. Come here, do your time, and leave for something better when you're ready.

    Conseils à la direction

    When you promise payment bonuses, actually give them to your employees. Don't try to secretly take their bonuses away when they're not checking their pay stubs. Doing so corrodes trust in the company and makes people leave.

    Avantages

    It was a wonderful trip which was well organized and with high standards. The tour guide spoke fluent English and was very helpful in guiding us throughout the event. The skiing spot is very popular and professional yet the cost is not much.

    Inconvénients

    As this is a really good event to get connected with EF co-workers. It would be great if more staff could participate and have fun.

    Avantages

    I have been working at EF for 6 months and I must say that so far I love it. Yes it has its ups and downs as any job has but I have never worked for a company that has put so much effort into bringing people together and trying to create something for everyone. Every month they have city wide teacher events and sometimes a trip to a near by city.

    Everyone here has been very helpful and willing to help me when ever I needed it. I have also witness them go above and beyond to help fellow employees who were struggling.
    The biggest pro is the local staff. They are so hard working and have such a great attitude, it really makes coming to work everyday much easier.

    Inconvénients

    As with starting any new job/career there is a learning curve but if you have the willingness, work ethic, and positive attitude you will have no problems here.

    Conseils à la direction

    Continue to work on staff development and encourage employee engagement.

    Avantages

    Professional Growth: EF provides its employees the opportunity to grow and develop within the company. I started with the company as a teacher and have now moved on to be a part of the Teacher Recruitment and Training team. Before arriving in China I had never taught before, everything I know about teaching I learned through EF’s training and development opportunities. EF provides a lot of development opportunities but it takes good performance, as well as personal motivation and determination to achieve these milestones.

    Personal Growth: I believe that traveling is one of the best ways to grow, while learning about yourself and the people around you. I’ve learned more about myself and what I’m passionate about through my experiences of living and working in China. My transition to China wouldn’t have been the same without EF’s assistance with the Visa process and my first weeks in Beijing!

    Community: When I arrived in China, I came in with a group of teachers that were experiencing the same things as me. Mostly excitement, but of course some fear, as most of us were moving abroad on our own for the first time. These people not only became colleagues, they ended up becoming, roommates, gym partners, travel buddies, and friends. The support system that EF initially facilitates by putting a group of people in the same training room, organically grew to become much more.

    Inconvénients

    Hours: Wouldn’t necessarily think of this as a con and more of an adjustment. I was used to a regular work week (8am – 5pm, Monday – Friday) so I had to adjust myself to working on the weekends and having my days off during the week when I was a teacher. This actually ended up being better than expected because I was able to enjoy the city and tourist cites without all the tourists! It definitely gave you the feel of exploring the city as a local.

    Avantages

    Overall, EF is a very organized company. Management and the TRT team provide a clear outline on how to grow within the company and encourage people to look at opportunities for growth. Also, EF compiles a list of events every month which have provided me with opportunities to attend events that would be more expensive otherwise.

    Inconvénients

    EF classes rely on technology, and too often, computers in the classrooms and/or iPads don't function properly.
