I worked at Hult International Business School

Pros

Very fun and diverse environment - the staff is on the young side and you will be surrounded by bright, enthusiastic, international graduate students.

Cons

Because Hult is a for-profit school, there is a definite emphasis on being asked to do more with less, so many positions are overworked and understaffed. There is also a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants mentality as opposed to long-term planning and vision; as a result, ideas pop out of nowhere and must be implemented with little regard to execution. This puts a lot of pressure on staff to deliver a quality product and meet students' expectations. As a result, many employees leave within two years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better communication between management and support staff would help deliver a stronger, more consistent product. Having a career development plan in place would also be very attractive.

    I have been working at Hult International Business School full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial spirit, although as it has grown things have been changing too, it's becoming more corporate.
    Freedom to run with own projects, independence, able to work flexibly (although this is changing)
    Easy to access high management, approachable management.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Work colleagues become your best friends because most of your time is spent working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the people, it's the biggest asset that the company has!

    Invest in retaining people, instead of quick-fixing with new hires

    I have been working at Hult International Business School full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Love the people, international environment, work hard play hard attitude, everyone is enthusiastic and motivated. At least at the beginning of the year. Lots of travel opportunities and chances to make your own projects

    Cons

    Heavily a numbers-focused company. Young and disorganised, and maybe too ambitious. The salary does not match the amount of hours and passion employees put in to their work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in retaining the people you have, instead of frantically hiring new people when the current dissatisfied ones leave. This leads to going back to square one at the beginning of every year and slows development. Need to be more strategic and plan ahead instead of reacting to sales results. Stop luring in young people with promises you can't deliver.
