    Good benefits, very little work/life balance

    Professor (Current Employee)

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

    ConsA 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 Senior ManagementThe 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.

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

    Great learning experience, but dysfunctional

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Monterrey, Nuevo León (Mexico)

    ProsYou 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.

    ConsCompletely 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.

    Neutral. Expecting change.

    Lawyer (Current Employee)

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

    ConsSalaries 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.

    contradicciones

    Professor (Current Employee)
    Monterrey, Nuevo León (Mexico)

    ProsThere is a lot of freedom and clear chances for growth, uo to a certain point and being able to share with student´s who are amazing individuals gives one hope for the future.

    ConsUpper management announces more freedoms but middle and lower managment impose more controls. Failure to fire people at the upper levels even if they behave like despots and do nothing for the company.People in key positions who abuse their power and use it for personal vendettas.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure you put people who are more secure of themeselves and respectful of subordinates.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    ITESM

    Program Director (Current Employee)
    Mexico, Distrito Federal (Mexico)

    ProsThe best private University in Mexico, innovative, the profile that students achieve while studying here is the most liked in Latinamercia by employers according to QS ratings.

    ConsFavoritism, not everybody has the same promotion opportunities, while some people may have the best chances to get more degrees and diplomas, others are deined trhat opportunity without a plausible or specific reason but if they like you or not.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEquity for everyone, beacuse if by any chance you are the "favorite" of your boss, great you get everything you want to imrpove, develop and be seen, if they just like you or on the contrary, you are different that he/ she you will not get any opprotunity.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Fair conditions: teach, teach, teach

    Professor (Former Employee)

    ProsIt's a very different experience depending the campus you work at, some are excellent, others a living hell. I was lucky to work with great people. Working conditions are good, salary is always negotiable despite what some say.

    ConsAs with all private universities in Mexico, they are going to ask you to teach a ridiculous number of hours per week, plus admin work. No room for much else.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOne word: relax the hyper-centralized policies: let good campi self-manage. Stop the micro management of every single process.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
