      Pros

      I tutor the CEO one-to-one to improve his English, and so I can see why the company is successful. He is always interested in making the company better for his employees and the students. He is of the belief that if you take care of these things, the profits will clme naturally.

      Cons

      Honestly, nothing. I have personal access to the CEO due to the nature of my job there, so if anything did seem off, I would just tell him.

      Pros

      GVE provides engaging lesson plans, has staff that always available to help, and provides a good rate of pay. The kids are usually engaged and are generally well-prepared for the lessons.

      Cons

      Glitches in software and lack of communication (see below).... this will probably be ironed out as the company grows.
