    I have been working at Engoo Tutors full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The only thing I can say is that you manage your own schedule

    Cons

    The working environment is unfair. Students rate you unfairly based on their mood, not based on practicing English.Parents don't manage their children. You can work your butt off and still get a low rating because students don't rate properly.Support staff is useless.There are no bonuses.You are responsible for everything whether it is your fault or not.

    I have been working at Engoo Tutors full-time

    Pros

    Job is pretty straightforward. Once you establish a routine, everything's a breeze. Support team is quick to response but don't expect them to always side with you. Their lesson room software is fantastic and it makes teaching really easy. All lesson materials are there so what you need is to practically just show up and talk.

    Cons

    If you're looking for a full-time, long-term career, you're in the wrong department. Pay is average but unlike other ESL teaching companies, they're not the most generous in giving incentives. Others have weekend incentive programs but with Engoo, that happens very very rarely. They don't have a clear program on rate increase even when you've stayed there for a year. In fact, they don't have at all. Years of loyalty in exchange for the exact same rate they pay you on Day 1. Also, there are days when you'll get fully booked and there are times when you won't. Of course it all depends on student feedback and cancellation rating. How well you did, etc. Student feedback is very one-sided though. Students can write whatever they want and if even if you've proven otherwise, the company won't stand up for you. What I'm saying is, it's not a stable source of income if that's what you signed up for. And hey, they give unreasonable cancellation penalty amounting to twice as much as your regular pay.
