    As with all academic institutions salaries are a bit low compared with other industries.

    Pros

    It is not a demanding job and the requirements are always pre established, so no surprises. Everything is in the calendar with a long time of anticipation.

    Cons

    Can be very boring due to the nature of the job, everything is the same always. You will be presented with new situations on rare ocassions.

    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 Management

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

    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

    Advice to Management

    SLEEPY MANAGEMENT ATTITUDE WHOSE MONEY AFTER ALL

    Pros

    They used to give scolarship for the master degree. You will meet great people.

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunities. Lack of sensibility to workers needs and lack of communication with them.

    Advice to Management

    There are many people doing the exactly same thing for more than ten or even more years.

    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 Management

    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.
