    Avantages

    Fun company culture. Opportunity to travel. The people you will work with are fun, motivated, well-travelled, and well-cultured.

    Inconvénients

    If you work abroad it is hard to find a job in the states if you want to stay with the company.

    Conseils à la direction

    Thank you for providing me with the best employment experience I have had in my life.

    Je travaille chez EF English First à plein temps (Pendant plus de 5 ans)

    Avantages

    1) International Company. You *have* to work with people with diverse backgrounds and from various nationalities. I find this extremely valuable on a personal level.
    2) Opportunities (for change and growth) - Within 5 years I have changed 3 times job (through promotion or horizontal transfer) or twice location (London - Shanghai).
    3) Education Sector - you have an impact. On your students, on your colleagues, on yourself. If you are passionate about growing people around you and growing yourself, then this is the right place.
    4) Freedom: The company is quite flexible. As long as you get the job done, you are pretty free to explore new areas related to your job. Nobody will micro-manage because there is trust that you will make your job happen.
    5) Innovative and constantly moving/changing/improving. In five years I cannot recognize the company I started with. Not everything is golden and great but it seems that the company itself wants to aim for better/higher. As an employee, I appreciate that there is flexibility in the way things are done and there is an ambition for the better.

    Inconvénients

    1) Luck: Like in most jobs, your happiness will depend on the manager you have. If you are "unlucky", you might get a bad experience. I have had that experience myself with a pretty bad and uncapable manager and I tried to make the most out of it. It wasn't a pleasant 8 months but I had decided to learn form it and I did. I grew in a better, more patient manager myself after this.
    2) Ownership: It all depends on you: Your growth mainly depends on you so you have to be pro-active. If you are, then nobody will stop you. Being motivated and ambitious is the way to get stuff moved around here. (whether your working conditions or your salary or your career growth). You cannot expect stuff to happen "just because", you'll have to vouch and fight for it. That's when it happens.
    3) Work hard-play hard: Get ready to work hard. You can have long hours sometimes. I see it as a way to learn more but it can get exhausting too.

    -Lots of support and training once you arrive
    -Help with living and navigating life overseas
    -Chances for advancement are possible with hard work
    - Interesting coworkers and a good working atmosphere

    Everything. Just don't work for them. They've found a way to make human trafficking legal. Racism, sexism, colorism and other forms of discrimination are very much apart of this company.
