Becomes a joke after 2015
Instructor (Current Employee) –  Flushing, NYAugust 17, 2016
This school is becoming a joke. If you are really into education, leave this school, the further, the better. This school is joking around its students. The only thing it cares is about money.

Student Success Advisor (Former Employee) –  Flushing, NYFebruary 13, 2016
There is no way to move up in this company although upper heads will sell you dreams that you can move up. This is a good place to start your career and then move on. The company is 90% Asians and they seem to be the only ones advancing. The upper heads have no loyalty to anyone. They will fire you the minute you make one mistake even if you have been there for 10-15 years.

Great students, fun class, unprofessional management
ESL Instructor, English Teacher (Former Employee) –  Flushing, NYDecember 3, 2015
Provost is unprofessional, sneaky and dishonest particularly when it comes to hiring practices. Forced out a very popular and experienced teacher who had worked there for years, just because he was older. Protects her favorites who show up to teach classes an hour and a quarter after they begin.

Supervisor at Flushing branch seems to have a chip on their shoulder and will make trouble for any instructor with more experience than them. If students like your class, supervisor responds by cutting your hours. This school will give diplomas and graduate any paying customer so teachers are pressured and bullied into passing students for College English class when they use dictionaries in exams and write essays partially in a language other than English. It seems to be the result of some kind of ATB (Ability to Benefit) scam and seriously undermines the academic integrity of the school.

Students are great, try hard, want to improve and ask for your help in an effort to use correct English as they pursue academic and professional goals, but staff do not support the teachers subject them to a lot of paperwork and grading exams only to then ignore the instructor's recommendations and use outdated tests that do not reflect the material covered in class.

This could be a great school, but it is run by people who are incompetent and unqualified and the students suffer. Those charged with the responsibility to hire English teachers have poor communication skills in written English. Low standards of academic integrity and management turns a blind eye to cheating. Students would

Pros
Students respectful, work hard, respond well to lessons
Cons
Managers don't show up to classes on time, don't follow lesson plans, play favorites
