Great Opportunity, Little Room to Advance
Client Services Manager (Current Employee) – Marietta, GA – January 2, 2019
Tutor.com and The Princeton Review offered me a great opportunity to remotely work doing a job I truly enjoy. However the benefits offered from when I started to current have been truly lackluster. The Princeton Review, a renowned Test Prep company, does not actually offer free or even discount pricing on their Test Prep books for employees (or their families) let alone classes. There have been monumental shifts and changes even before the company was bought and even prior to that they were making questionable decisions on who would stay and who would go. I lost some truly valuable coworkers during my time that have made my day to day at times more challenging. I believe they are attempting to right the ship at the moment of posting (Jan, 2019) but time will tell. In regards to upward mobility, I knew it could be an uphill battle since my particular department is on the smaller side but with no plan to elevate or even find additional colleagues dedicated to my position have made things uneasy.
On the positive side, I have managers & directors who truly care about me personally and are good to work for. I have been commended in my time and while there were no perks for recognition, it was very nice to know my work is appreciated in some way. I also have a semi flexible schedule but due to my position and ability, work longer hours if need be.
Overall, this was a great place to continue my career and build up valuable experience that I will be able to put to use in the future.
