I also taught at CIS for a substantial amount of time. Korea is AMAZING, my students were great but CIS left alot to be desired.

The school has alot to learn about how to treat professional teachers and how to effectively run a school. If they choose to only hire qualified teachers then they should treat them that way and learn from their expertise. From the first day it was evident that it was the school against the teachers. They didn't trust us and made it clear. There were often secrets that the korean staff was supposed to hide from the foreign staff. This is not the most effective way to foster a healthy, enjoyable working environment. The Korean staff were discouraged from having friendships with the foreign staff outside of school. The school would promise things to us and then take them away at the last minute, would take unexpected withdrawals from payments without legitimate notice or explanation and overall treated foreign staff like unqualified children. The stress and heartache did not make the experience at CIS worthwhile

Please go and teach in Korea! It is an amazing country and wonderful people but I advise anyone looking for a job to choose very wisely. Your work environment can make or break your experience in Korea.
