    I worked at Ministerio de Educacion part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great way for English speaking foreigners to have the opportunity to work in Spain.

    Cons

    Complete crap shoot in terms of school placement, school environment, responsibilities, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More choice for teachers and standardization of requirements

    Current Employee - Auxiliar De Conversación in Madrid (Spain)

    I have been working at Ministerio de Educacion part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    More steady and stable than other jobs in the ESL industry. Many holidays, relaxed work environment. Overall satisfying job.

    Cons

    It's the luck of the draw--some schools are fantastic, and some can be nightmarish. Some schools are full of teachers who love working with native speakers, and some have teachers who resent them. The Ministerio gives participants in the Auxiliar program no say over which school they're placed in, and at least in Madrid, no transfers are allowed, regardless of the situation (Your principal is anti-foreigner? Too bad). Some schools have bad hours, so you'll spend much of your day sitting around waiting for the next class.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stack hours in a way that prevents auxiliares from wasting time. Arrange tutoring of teachers or struggling students during down time.

    I worked at Ministerio de Educacion full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very good disposition of coworkers allways. You can take administrative days, the money its ok. The integration between the different areas are good, all the process are very standarized.

    Cons

    Stressfull, always working against time because what the ministry says it must be done. They do not consult first with the IT area, that would be the smartest thing to do. You have to be very patient when you submit a petition

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Getting a PMO consultant would be helpful

    I have been working at Ministerio de Educacion as an intern (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A PhD opens the possibilities to Post PhDs in several countries. The work timetable is flexible and it is possible to work from home.

    Cons

    The compensation is minimum compared with other PhD positions in other countries, and the career possibilities in the Public University are small in the present.

    I worked at Ministerio de Educacion

    Pros

    You are thrown head-on into this position and are given free range to plan your own lessons and create new ways to communicate with the kids. There is lots of vacation time and the shortened schedule makes it easy to take extended trips to different locations.

    Cons

    Not a lot of training or guidance provided. I could have used some more help planning my activities as I do not come from a training background.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think Coordinators should offer more support, especially to new Assistants, and offer a few observations classes so that Assistants can get a general feel for the position.
