In response to Web International English Feedback (Jackson)

Web is a xenophobic employer using Westerners strictly as promotional material, aka dancing monkeys. Westerners are never to be headed, their opinion or ideas never to be considered. Westerners are never to be promoted to managerial or decisional positions within the company, this even if they speak fluent Mandarin and hold relevant qualifications/experience.

The only "Foreigners" to ever get promoted are Western-born Chinese people. Not that I have anything against them teaching English, which should not be a White-only club, but how come only those Foreigners who are ethnically Chinese get promoted to decisional positions? Racist employer.

Web has a quarterly meeting to reward their staff, both locals and Foreigners, it's a citywide meeting where every centers must go. If you happen to work in a city where Web employs one or several Western-born Chinese as Foreign teachers, then you can be certain that they will get the top spot and associated monetary reward in every quarterly meetings, regardless of their actual performance. I have seen rather unpopular (with students) Western-born Chinese teachers being praised over and over by the management. Once more proof of racism from Web.

I highly suspect that these Western-Chinese teachers at Web are hired through connections and because of family relation, their family in the US knows someone at Web or something. Some of them are not even from one of the 5 'native' countries and speak rather very average English, yet get promoted over native speakers. Disgusting employer.
