The culture and structure in Bibo may be quite different now, so read my review with that in mind. When I first joined this company, it was very much a startup. Job descriptions and responsibilities were fluid. Hierarchies were mostly flat. In my time there, everyone was a pleasure to work with. Training stubborn teachers had its share of challenges, but that was part of the job. The company was quite generous with us and management was very reasonable to talk to. They made sure that employees were well-equipped and valued. Clubs were also started at the time to encourage hobbies and healthier lifestyles. HR and management did all they could to prevent burnout. Job security was rock solid. Job advancement was difficult to secure once Bibo transitioned to a more seasoned and structured company. You will have to go above and beyond the call of duty to be considered for promotion. And if you are stuck with a lackluster superior, then that's just something you'll have to live with.

I had a great time working with Bibo. I gained some friends in teaching Japanese students. I learned about their culture. Excited teaching and having conversations with my students.

this is a fun and convenient job for me because there are no quotas required. you only get paid on the hours you worked every 15 days. You can choose whatever time is fine for you even if you have a busy schedule.

Bibo is the most convenient job that I had in the past. It provided me the work life balance that I have been wishing for from my previous job as a CSR. It allowed me to work from the comfort of my home while taking care of my daughter and family.

Teaching online is a fun experience with this company as it allows you to freely manage your time between personal purposes and work schedules. However there are times when there are only students booking you set time slots which makes you unable to earn income for that specific time frame. Nevertheless, it has been a good experience.
Pros
Time-flexibility
Cons
Possible lack of clients

Engaging foreign students, approachable supervisors, and convenient for students. The job is really meant for students who want to work while studying for the time is flexible. The management being too student-centered is a con.
Pros
Students, experience
Cons
No protection from students, too student-centered

Pros
Flexible Time
Cons
Long Hours to earn money

flexible schedule is alright but it's hard to get students if you are new teacher. You work mostly at night since the students are in school or work in the morning
Pros
flexible schedule
Cons
hard to get students if you are a new teacher

I like this job as I don't need to go to the office and experience the traffic on the road. Apart from this, my schedule is flexible i don't follow a standard schedule, instead I make my own.

Since it's a home based job, we are given a chance to choose the schedule that we want. So if you have other errands for the following days, you have the freedom of not booking a class.

Bibo offers a fun work atmosphere. Most of the employees are young (majority are in their 20s). The company is young as well (it was established in 2013), thus a lot of the company's processes are not yet established. Processes keep on changing. There's a lot of room for improvement. Do not expect much career advancement, as the company does not even have a good organizational chart.
Pros
flexible work schedule, youthful work atmosphere
Cons
poor management (especially HR), inconsistent policies, no training and development for staff

The teachers would be the one who would choose how many hours they would want to work and open a slot, then the students are the ones who chooses which teacher and open time slot of the teacher they would like to boo. I learned how to handle different types and kinds of people as I taught over a hundred students via Skype. The hardest part of the job is that it is Internet based. When the Internet goes out, I won't be able to conduct my lessons until the Internet comes back.
Pros
Flexible time slots
Cons
Limited time for the lesson, underpaid

You have to be self-motivated. You must always meet the immediate supervisor's expectations on time with a very minimal & insufficient instructions on how you shall do it. You must have a very patient & a positive attitude despite of all conditions.
Pros
Air travelling for free, free lunches
Cons
