    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at EF Education First for less than a year

    Pros

    The work environment was quite relaxed. Targets were achievable and the team leader did not exert undue pressure to take on more work. Editing English language submissions of foreign students was helpful to get my grammar and spelling fundamentals right.

    Cons

    Editing Engligh language submissions can get quite monotonous, especially within the same role. Did not see a realistic growth path. The payscale wasn't sufficient to achieve a decent return when compared to the investment in terms of time.
