Administrative (Former Employee) – CA – October 9, 2017
Very limited to in-house advancement. Overall, a great place to work to build your basic skills but not challenging enough for someone who enjoys data analysis. They should really consider offering travel compensation since you end up having to drive around a lot.
Teacher and Trainer (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – August 2, 2017
As a teacher/trainer, you usually can work as much as you want or as little. It is really high paying and if you are in a strong office you have many chances to teach. The upper management aren't great and have no idea on how to run a business.
Master Trainer / Territory Manager / Author (Current Employee) – El Paso, TX – June 26, 2017
Most teaching positions within this company are part-time. There are no benefits (anymore) to part-time employees. The wages for a person with a college degree are sub-standard, but excellent for non-degreed people. The amount of work one can have is variable and seasonal and generally not easy to make a living from this work alone. Teaching work with The Princeton Review should be a second job or one of two or more part-time jobs if you plan on sustaining yourself.
Operations Assistant (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – April 27, 2017
I loved my managers, the products, the people. I always felt challenged to learn more, they have a great initiative to expand your credentials. I participated in their book group, which was a cool idea to have since our offices are nationwide.
Mathematics Consultant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 27, 2017
A typical day is full of professional development of different levels of instructors with diverse backgrounds who are eager to learn. The rewarding part of the job is seeing growth from one level to another.
Site Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 6, 2016
This company is making a killing off tax payer money that should go directly to schools. Most off the individuals working for TPR are at qualified. This includes myself at the time. I was amazed that I got the job. Once I started working in the public schools I felt gulity. I quickly learned the students and schools would benefit more if funding went straight to them as oppose to a private company with unqualified staff.
Site Director (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 6, 2015
I enjoyed going into various schools and being in the field the majority of the time. Management was not approachable and were rewarded with bonus based off their staffs hard word. Money was mismanaged and let to the office being closed down.
Helping children improve their reading and math scores
Very interesting and challenging work environment. Great working with professors and students.
Director (Former Employee) – San Juan, PR – September 25, 2015
The Princeton Review has a great product in all their courses, and impressive selection of teachers. It was great providing guidance and support to all kids and college students, while running a fast pace office.
