    I have been working at EF Education First full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Everything we do at EF is about helping people build bridges across borders and cultures, spark mutual understanding, and create new opportunities. It's a mission that feels incredibly relevant right now.
    - Travel opportunities: I spent more than 3 months traveling abroad last year to some of the most amazing places including Spain, Sweden, UK, France, and Germany. Everyone travels once a year, most travel far more than that.
    - The people. EF people make coming into work every day energizing and fun.
    - The benefits. Probably among the best on offer in Greater Boston.

    Cons

    - EF isn't for everyone; and in particular, folks who are looking for lots of structure and a clear path to promotion on an annual or semi-annual basis. People who aren't a good EF fit probably won't be happy here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Staff events and professional development opportunities were fantastic in 2018. Not surprising that EF consistently ranks in the top 2 on the Globe's Top Places to Work list.

    English Language Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sydney
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at EF Education First (Sydney).

    Interview

    Was contacted by email to arrange a one on one interview at their location in Sydney. I was shown around the school and then had the interview with the same person who contacted me by email. General questions you would expect, no curve balls.
