    Former Employee - Teacher  in  Colima, Colima (Mexico)
    Former Employee - Teacher in Colima, Colima (Mexico)

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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

    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.

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

    Pros

    There 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.

    Cons

    Upper 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 ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you put people who are more secure of themeselves and respectful of subordinates.

    Former Employee - Professor
    Former Employee - Professor

    Pros

    It'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.

    Cons

    As 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 ManagementAdvice

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