i think there’s around 200 teachers at echo now. Most seem to be happy.. some moan about money and office hours but it depends what school i suppose. Personally I’ve never had a problem and always treated me well. Into my third year now.
My tip is bring things like painkillers here with you. Hard to get here.

Harder work than thought but great friends made

Teresa ask me to write this (like 5 times!) ... yeah really enjoying life in China. Some days are difficult but i've made some great friends here . If i have any major problems i usually get Teresa from Echo to sort it. I'm happy with the school but sometimes wish the classes were slightly smaller. It's ok though, you get use to it quickly and the teaching hours are low. Pay isn't bad... enough to have a good life and travel. Sometimes go to Shanghai on the weekend.
Download a VPN before you get here. China are cracking down and it's difficult to do it inside china. Add me on WeChat if you come to Hangzhou and we'll meet for a beer. Stephen
No regrets but learn some Chinese beforehand!

Disclaimer... i was asked to write this review by Echo but fair enough. I've worked for them for 2 years and they've always been on the ball and upfront with me. They're quite big now and look after a lot of teachers. Overall i've had a great time in China. Worked in a public school for 2 years but next year will go to a private training centre. I'm actually getting married to a Chinese woman next year.... who'd have thought....
My only suggestion to new teachers is learn a little Chinese before coming here. Life can be difficult at times. Echo look after you when you first arrive and translate stuff, speak to people... but you can't expect people to do this for you forever... learning Chinese is best way.... for me no regrets

My name is John Junk and I've been a teacher for Echo English for the last three years. You can look up my profile on Facebook to see what I do. Understand anybody can write anything but I'm letting you know that I've had the greatest three years of my life working here in China. Echo has always been a phone call away when I had any issues. I never had to worry about my paycheck. If you have any questions and would like to contact me, feel free to contact me @ WeChat.
