Not a place to start your career

Admissions Specialist (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at IES Abroad full-time for more than a year

ProsThe staff is fun for the most part. It's a lot of recent grads with international experience. The location is great and work hours are also good.

ConsThere is no room for growth or professional development opportunities. I think my resume was more competitive before I worked here, and the pay is extremely low. There is no opportunity during annual reviews to give feedback to managers, and no interest in making sure managers are leading effectively.

It would be difficult to start a career here, as you most likely won't have increasing responsibilities or a promotion, so there would be little opportunity to get a better position at a different organization or company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Pros: Great work hours. Good location. You will meet… Cons: Hard-work, creativity and intelligence will go absolutely unnoticed. No opportunity for professional development. Pay is awful for staff (the majority of workers) but highly… Advice to Senior Management: Develop a "promote from within" approach to vacancies. Hire only people who are EXTREMELY interested in a career in international education, those tend to… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
