Suggestions for improvement

  • There are some workplace politics involved but luckily if you do a good job this is a great place to work. The only constructive feedback I have to offer is the lack of decent pay for the work done.

What I like about the company

This company is the best company I've ever worked for. The people at EF live their jobs and this makes it all worth it. I need to be able to work from home and so the paycut for me was doable. However, I do not think that EF pays people what they are worth or pays the job what it is worth.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of our pay structure and think we would have less turnover if there was better compensation.

  • Better upper management. Better pay. More parking for employees, cheaper food options in the cafe.

What I like about the company

I was very passionate about the company and the work itself. I wanted to make a difference in the world and felt like I could do so by providing international travel to students from all different economic backgrounds.

What I dislike about the company

The upper management is terrible. People are fake. Nobody really “cares” about your personal wellness, they just claim to do so. Your job is never steady, you can be fired at any time with no explanation. The pay is absolutely terrible and the work is extremely demanding.

  • Perhaps working on employee retention and communicating.

What I like about the company

Company allows you to travel as it deals with cultural exchange and education abroad. It has lots of offices globally and you can work from its network in any of them. In the Cambridge site there is a fitness center that has scheduled work out classes in the morning, during lunch, and after work hours. It has training sessions available to employees to gain. Insight as to how others have achieved success, trainings in time management, finances, best practices. Each “semester” employees can sign up for language classes and take them for free. We also have access to a number of discounts for fitness, events, etc.

What I dislike about the company

It is a very demanding company in which some employees dedicate a great amount of their after hours to work. The company can be better at recognizing slow periods for different products and compensating time off during these times. It’s a bit of sink or swim, employees can burn out or learn to grow within the company very quickly. Employees learn at a fast pace since they are given a big amount of responsibilities but then transfer out and use those skills at other companies. This may or may not be a loss for the company since people are then quickly replaced by slightly inexperienced employees.
