  1.  

    Excellent place to work

    I have been working at ITESM full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Family environment, benefits, flexible schedule

    Cons

    Nothing really. If you are the best you will have a job.

  2.  

    Nice perks, but no long-term perspectives. Be ready to get fired if you fail the wrong student.

    I worked at ITESM as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits: access to campus resources (library, gym, tennis courts), nice salary, opportunities for lifelong learning. I would recommend here only temporary, though.

    Cons

    No job stability. A colleague of mine got fired after working all her life, out of nowhere. I got fired myself after I failed a student with influences above (they paid me the full salary for the rest of the semester, though).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the ECOA (student surveys). The premise that you can educate a client is wrong. Most professors worry too much about their ECOA score and spend more time trying to please the students rather than teach them.

    I worked at ITESM full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Though advancement has a limited ceiling, it is the best place for foreign teachers in Mexico. There are more options than in other institutions due to most campuses having both a high school and a university.

    Cons

    At times there is tension and competition among teachers in search of the same courses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More orientation and support to help foreign employees adapt to a new culture. Do more to help streamline visa and work permit procurement.

    Former Employee - Professor in Mexico, Distrito Federal (Mexico)

    I worked at ITESM full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    NOTHING PRO ABOUT THIS SCHOOL WATCH OUT

    Cons

    Schools in Latin America are run by students. High School students complain to the so called inexperienced Directors as they are called. Students Boss over Directors saying I am paying the fees and the Directors take it on the Professors making the Professors run out. Is this quality education? They have their icons as animals such as a sheep or a goat. That means the Professors are scapegoats. Foreign Professors go to deliver lectures the way it is taught in their country and not the way it is thought already in the country where the Professor visits. The remarks are our students did not accept you. Ha what a comedy who is more experienced Professor or the student. Directors cannot convince and dance according to the students. Are they commercializing education? That is a Cross Cultural Training. Do the students really deserve such Professors. A BIG NO. These inexperienced Directors show their bossism which is clearly visible. Request everyone to think for a minute while you take an assignment. Don´t get fancied by overseas job offers

    I have been working at ITESM full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and access to campus resources like the library and free gym classes. Intellectually stimulating work with nice students and fun co-workers.

    Cons

    A great deal of favoritism, which limits opportunities for growth, and an absolute focus on the bottom line. Long hours and last-minute meetings and events. Very little work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The school should focus less on money and more on quality of education and employee well-being. There should less favoritism and under-the-table dealings among directors.

    Pros

    It is an amazng organization where you can grow. They take care of their employees in a great way with competitive salaries.

    I worked at ITESM full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can get your masters for free if you work full time, you can also teach part time if you're interested and education is a fascinating world. Benefits are nice.

    Cons

    Completely mired in politics to the extent that it's surprising that anything gets done. Pay is very low and there can be limited room to grow.

    Pros

    They have good opportunities and considerations for employees. Working hours are great.

    Cons

    Salaries are poor. Poorly organized. A lot of situations lacking work ethics. They have ethos for reporting violations to the ethical code, from an anonymous source, but they don't give it the importance it should have.
