    Double faced culture: what students see ( perfection) and the back office (low salaries, no career, discrimination)

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsMission is awesome. Barcelona location is insuperable. Internacional enviromment. Food is great but used to be better when Chef Pedro was there. Teaching is first class. Good work-life balance for working moms (school vacations and schedulle)

    ConsHR is non existant. Management is male and Opus Dei controlledt. Only if you are male and belong to Opus Dei there is career advancement. Even if you are mediocre, you will not be fired if you are a male Opus Dei. As a consequence, most "normal" people end up leaving at some point, and only people with no other options (usually lowpaid, administrative work women with children) and Opus Dei (male in top positions) stay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf not fixed, school will end up becoming a mediocre school, just like its management.

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

    Great but people too willing to work for low wages

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFelt like I was in a family. Great home away from home.

    ConsPay and advancement difficult to stomach. Had to be content with stagnation the rest of my life.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf this model works don't fix it but be prepared to either hire "insiders" for ever or mediocre professionals.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Enriching experience when people are open to you and willing to help you.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Barcelona (Spain)

    ProsSupportive culture
    Strong values - commitment to mission
    No office politics

    ConsOrganization is bureaucratic - some things take a lot of time
    Not all departments have the same policy
    Some layoffs are mestrious - people dont know the reason behind - only exceptions

    Advice to Senior ManagementSome departments (support) should be audited in their HRM policy, to unify it with other departments.
    Employee turnover in some areas seems very high.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
