    Generally positive, but totally dependent on placement

    Auxiliar de Conversación (Current Employee)
    Madrid (Spain)

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

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    ProsGreat chance to live and gain teaching experience in Spain. Helpful teachers, friendly and eager students.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStandardize materials and program training for assistants.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Performing joint tasks of project analyst and manager, overseeing projects related to the area of Grants and Loans withi

    Project Analyst (Former Employee)
    Santiago (Chile)

    ProsVery 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.

    ConsStressfull, 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 Senior ManagementGetting a PMO consultant would be helpful

    PhD in Computer Research

    PhD In Computer Research (Current Employee)
    Madrid (Spain)

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A great learning experience

    Language and Cultural Assistant (Former Employee)

    ProsYou 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.

    ConsNot 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 Senior ManagementI 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.
