The company has recently come under fire for its decision in early 2008 to reduce hourly wages and monetary compensation for its teachers to such a degree that many tenured employees experienced up to a 40% pay reduction for in-classroom duties. The company explained to those affected that "some of the current policies, while generous, were not sustainable. These changes were not made lightly, but before we can fix the Princeton Review house, we must fix the foundation. " This reformulation of pay practices ostensibly contravenes what employees were told in early 2007 -- that teachers have always been the company's most important asset and that monetary compensation must properly reflect this belief. Proper compensation, many teachers have recently argued, is rhetoric at first blush noble but ultimately vacuous, as the company shows little remorse or restraint in redefining this term in whatever way necessary to appease shareholders. Because these recent compensation changes have most adversely affected those with the greatest teaching experience, some argue the company is transitioning to a more replicable product and away from intangibles such as great teachers that have historically differentiated its test preparation from that of oft-criticized companies such as Kaplan.
