Working at front of house make you feel relaxed due to good exposure of sun ray and air ventilation system. You will be approached by customers at all time which will make you don't feel bored. You will be constantly serving customers.

Good if you wouldn’t want to progress in your career.
Basically no promotion progress.

Pay below market average for trade off with work like balance.

With no pay increase in the last 10 years and a steady decline in student numbers morale very low. Uninspiring place to work. Was happy to leave after 4 years as were most colleagues.

A brand and a market leader, carries a lot of prestige. I’m privileged to be a part of this organization. However, I wish they take employee welfare seriously.

A typical day consisted of teaching, alot of driving and admin tasks. I learned that some companies look really good on paper. Management focused on rolling out projects without concern for their staff or target audience. The hardest part of the job was completing manager tasks as well as your own. The easiest was the end of the day.
Pros
Ability to travel
Cons
Poor management and communication

I worked at BC KL for a couple of years and their standards are higher than any school I worked in before. They value professional development and in order to be selected to do any Cambridge course you need to be selected by an internal trainer. I noticed that management has a preferential number of people they like working with. The local staff is quite rigid with their rules and the HR team is far from being helpful.
Pros
INSETTs
Cons
lack of support from management

I was exposed to working with different nationalities and working under pressure as well and as such my people skills were improved as I dealt with different people everyday. The job I did needed patience, commitment, understanding and meticulousness which I was never found wanting. My job also entailed confidentiality as we dealt with examinations and results of many people which included at times travelling to out of Johannesburg examination centres and extra caution was expected in securing those examination papers.
Pros
Shouldering huge responsibility of securing examination papers
Cons
Working very long hours at times until at night

The people have been wonderful, the tasks exciting, the travel a little exhausting, but, all in all, a great year so far.
(1) Travel to see trainers in their venues

(2) Meet with Min of Ed. personnel

(3) Understanding the system of education

(4) Dealing with the KL central office

(5) Coping with personnel issues

(6) Solving problems on the fly

(7) Getting lost in the plantations

(8) The food!

I would highly recommend this project as a way to get to know Malaysia, in a way you could never do as a tourist.
Pros
Great people.
Cons
A little too much exhausting travel.
