Great name, but there are lots of opportunities for improvement

Junior Researcher (Former Employee)

I worked at Vlerick full-time for more than a year

Pros- good work-life balance
- diverse work
- overall great atosphere amongst colleagues
- World famous in Belgium (but not beyond)

Cons- low and stagnant pay
- PhD opportunities pretty much non-existent for researchers, because of lack of funding and time.
- reserachers are seen a cheap and replacable resource
- great academic claims by manangement, yet little academic output.
- average ranking

Advice to Senior Management- Create growth opportunities for ambitous reseachers.
- Be honest about PhD opportunities
- the partnership structure makes it a slow organisation with a lot of conflicting interests. Too many little kingdoms.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
