If you are looking for a teaching job, this place is the cream of the crop

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I understand that a lot of companies have people create reviews for them. I know this because I and others did very bad reviews for a previous college and they just kept having someone to good reviews. This is not one of those reviews. This college is extremely well run and managed. I know this because I teach management and I have had my own business previously. This place is fantastic. It's not perfect, and trust me, that you will not find it anywhere. However, this is about a close to perfect that you will get.Let's start with the executive management. They do what executives should be doing, that is strategic management and not trying to meddle in the work of the teachers. They really do focus on the future and navigate the direction of the college. The managers, however, provide direction, feedback, and support to the teachers. The other teachers provide amazing support to each other.Honestly, I love working here. Even in the online environment, I look forward to my job. The hardest part of the job right now is making connections with the students in an online environment.If you are looking for a job whether it be teaching or otherwise, this is a place you should consider, I have been working my whole life, and this is one of the best environments I have worked in.

Pros

Strong support from management

Cons

Pay could be higher, but then it always could be higher

My coworkers were the best part of my job

The worst part of this job is that 80% of faculty members are on contract, meaning you get your in-class hours paid and that’s it. They claim that your salary is meant to account for time spent on lesson prep, student communication, and grading, and at first the wage looks amazing, but the amount I worked outside of class, when I was not paid, made the final hourly pay about minimum wage. If you really love your field, and it’s a field that is relevant to a program offered rather than a core requisite, it might be good for you.

Pros

Great coworkers, you can work in your field (ideally)

Cons

Long hours for pay based on unrealistic work standards, demanding students, tons of plagiarizing students, most people are doing contract work with no information regarding renewal, and no ownership of intellectual property.

Avoid if possible

Highly unethical staff and management with little to no industry experience. They are not running an education institution to enhance the learning for students but a cash cow to cut costs and exploit exorbitant amounts of funds from international students.

Pros

None.

Cons

Political hiring and retention that are not based on merit.

Too many to list

Paid as a student which is very little.

Excellent and Flexible

I worked as a part time EarlyON Centre student and it was a very exciting and educational opportunity. Many of the tasks seemed odd at first but each one was purposeful and fun. Management was amazing, they are so understating and very flexible. A truly amazing job to have when you are a busy full-time student.

Pros

Flexible and understanding

Fun work place, great experience

The best part if the job is the cooperation and collaboration of many different peers, which have the same interests and goals as one another. It was difficult to manage school time and don duties, but after some experience, it got easier.

Poor management lead to caustic work environment

Management appears to actively demoralize faculty by not providing support, distancing themselves from faculty, deliberately creating tension between faculty, and discriminating when assigning work.
