Unhealthy Work environment, no job security, cheap politics in the campus, Judgemental mentality, no place to show creativity.

Work environment is extremely bad, behavior of the coordinators and the principal is mostly rude, no respect for the teachers, absolutely no job security, they would use the teachers almost for every works even those are related to admis or marketing. Being a Performing Arts teacher I almost forgot what I teach. I would never recommend this concern to my friends and family.

Worst experience

If you want ur peace of mind it's not a place... Work is extracted by teachers but salary is not paid according.. They don't follow the HR policy ... It's an unethical environmental where teachers are not paid for even what they were supposed to get.. There is no growth for the teachers both professionally and personally.. They don't stick on to what they say in interview..

Pros

Nothing as such

Cons

Long hours, no holiday as informed in interview, salary are not paid for the work taken

Verry stressful and pressurising environment

Except teaching all other things which is not a teachers work are asked to be done.for exampleasking us to design and create a step certificate, step report cards which is very hard and not possible by a teacher. Asking us to collect the video from kids everyday from all kids from grade Nursery to 10th and asking us to upload in YouTube channel, Facebook, orchid TV, orchid radio etc.....there is is a big list continues without end that orchid is asking teachers to do which is not part teaching profession that is also without pay and in the holidays without giving us holiday.

Pros

Nothing is there has to be said

Cons

Overall orchid pressure and stressful environment

Share your experience to help others

You are expected to be a machine. No work life balance.

No labour law. If you want to keep yourself engaged for 24/7 and have a problematic family, get into this place, you feel everything else easy. You will get to play various roles like marketing, administration etc, in addition to your teaching. Hikes not given with respect to your performance and no wonder if you work for the same salary for more than 2 years. The management doesn't live in this era while considering the teachers salaries.. Few principals and management team are the only benefited ppl. It is very hard only to depend on the salary provided by them to lead a life. Your health condition is also not considered as they just need their work to be done.

Pros

Nope

Cons

Explained in detail.

Coordinator

It was very good working with Orchids because they conducted training with many new technicalities on weekly basis.The team was very supportive. But teachers cannot use their strategies to mold the child as per their observation.

Pros

Will learn advanced techniques used in the education field.

Cons

Long working hours.

We, as a responsible international school, aims to create an environment where passionate individuals can bloom to perfection. They can be better role models, and play important roles in shaping up the upcoming generations. So we are always cautious about creating an environment where teachers can whittle their innate talents.We value all our associates who join us and try to provide a secure environment with competitive salaries and contracts. The Orchids family means that every member is cared for and looked after in their unique requirements while being productive members of the family.

It's a very progressive educational setup.

The working environment is very collaborative and fast paced. It requires a very open mind to work in Orchids. Old school style has no place in the system. Learning new every day is a regular feature in Orchids.

Unhealthy environment to work.

*Too much work pressure. * No job security... anytime can be terminated. *No respect for teachers. * No personal life...24×7 HV to work for school. * HR policies also not favourable for teachers.

Orchid's encourages ambitious career driven individuals who want to not just enter the teaching field, but grow themselves and become true role models and champions for the students to imbibe and learn from. We hold our educators to certain standard and expect them to adhere to them - with proper support systems in place to ensure development. We value all our associates who join us and try to provide a secure environment with competitive salaries and contracts. The Orchids family means that every member is cared for and looked after in their unique requirements while being productive members of the family.Certain standards have to be kept when maintaining an international school such as ours.As an international school, we take the issue of standards very seriously,so we welcome people who are passionate about teaching. Teachers are the biggest role models a child can get, and there lies the nobility of the profession. We are developing more robust policies as we grow, and always welcome feedback on the same. Our policies are built to give the best ecosystem to every associate while adhering to the ideals and mission we are attempting to live up to. A balance has to be there to become the best.

Salary was not paid on time to teachers. Role of a particular post was not fixed.

Norms and rules with respect to salary and qualifications for a particular teaching post was not followed. Anyone who is ready and capable to teach was asked to teach irrespective of her qualifications.

Pros

Standard work procedure

Cons

SOP was not followed.
