    Pros

    Great pay for the work. The branch I was at had excellent support for their ALTs. They helped you get an apartment, drivers license (if needed), set up a bank account, and etc. All of the the kids were wonderful to teach. Was a great experience overall!

    Cons

    Everything was great for me. No cons!

    If you need/want to stay in Japan

    Pros

    - Lots of help with Japanese bureaucratic stuff - Plenty of time off due to the school holidays - Visa support and a steady paycheck - The kids and teachers you meet will likely be great and you'll feel like you're making an impact in their lives.

    Cons

    - Said paycheck is very minimal, but average for ALT's. - Compensation does not equal the amount of time, effort, and general work that you will do. - Despite your experience or the number of years you stay with the company, you won't get a pay raise. - No real room for career advancement as a teacher. Becoming a Head Teacher increases your workload 10 fold but your paycheck by a few yen. - Some teachers don't value ALT's because they have probably worked with numerous in their career and you're just a new one in a long line of them.
