    Lots of opportunities for proactive and persistent and politically-minded employees

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIE's very organic company structure makes it fairly simple for employees to move around the institution between departments and areas when opportunities arise. There is also an undercurrent of entrepreneurial attitude which means that any employee can develop projects of their own interest within their positions if so inclined.

    ConsThe very same organic company structure makes for a lot of operational inefficiencies that often hamper good initiatives and allow politics to play too much of a role. There is also very little support structure for employees, so it's basically what you make out of it. Also, most of the employees are former students which makes for a slightly "inbred" environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSeriously consider a deep restructuring of all areas of the school as it would allow for an improved internal professionalization of the internal services it offers and would be reflected in a improvement of external services as well.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Fair but pressure filled

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Madrid (Spain)

    ProsVery friendly colleagues who care about the school and its future
    Rapidly growing and forward looking business program
    Young and vivacious staff; very passionate and open to change
    Excellent faculty overall, very high international rankings
    Diversity of students from all over the world and advance educational methods

    ConsOld guard senior management not responsive to change and growth needed
    Senior management lack of awareness of competition in field
    Very Spanish centered
    Identity lacks coherence- appears very Spanish centered although providing international curriculum
    Limited campus facilities
    Lack of international campuses, therefore very Europe centered

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to look at aggressive international expansion
    Need to listen to lower level staff about what needs to be done for greater growth
    Need to provide better marketing and promotions support especially in important benchmark setting nations such as the US and UK
    Need support for corporate partnerships
