Company with great vision but poor management
Bilingual Marketing Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON25 October 2018
EF has great mission and vision. Unfortunately it doesn't get translated from the top down where a mediocre management creates an unstable work environment, not to mention that the company pays cheap.

Great company mission with excellent company culture
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC12 July 2018
EF has an amazing mission and hires incredible staff! The company offers excellent work life balance.

The job is primarily a desk job. Your day stars with responding to client emails and then making sales calls/prospecting new business.

Poor management
COORDONATEUR AUX ADMISSION (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC5 December 2017
EF est une excellente entreprise pour qui veut de l'expérience dans le domaine. Par contre vous devrez faire beaucoup de sacrifice puisque les salaires sont minimes en comparaison aux autres emplois dans le domaine. L'entreprise ne paye pas non plus les heures supplémentaire obligatoire due à la surcharge de travail. Il est pratiquement impossible d'avoir une bonne balance vie personnelle-travail. L'entreprise demande beaucoup de vous sans rien vous donné en retour malheureusement.
Pros
expérience
Cons
Salaire, management, surcharge de travail, aucune possibilité d'avancement

Fun first job
Senior Airline Inventory Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON6 November 2017
A great first place to work out of college if you don't care about saving any money or advancing any farther than an 'honourary' managerial position. Extremely high turn over rate. Over 9 years I saw 4 CEOs come and go
Pros
Free travel
Cons
Low pay

Fun workplace with great people!
Tour Director Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON2 November 2015
EF is a very fun company to work for - lots of office culture and ways to get involved. The pay is relatively low but benefits are a bonus and you get the security of working for a big company that treats its employees well (free vacations, likes to retain employees so changing departments is always an option).

Supportive Community
Tour Director (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON8 June 2015
EF Tours is a whirlwind job but set in an environment of fun co-workers and supportive managers. Being a Tour Director is fast-paced, demanding and involves long hours: but is possibly the most rewarding job I have done to date. The people you meet and the places you see make it always exciting. It requires attention to detail, flexibility and strong interpersonal skills. In exchange you work with fun, upbeat fellow guides and help bring education and travel to life for students!
