    I worked at Tecnológico de Monterrey full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    You will be challenged to rise to the occasion over and over. If you are not a techno savvy person, you will have to become so to succeed. With the right leadership above you, there are many opportunities for learning and growth, however...

    Cons

    What you must consider is the very nature of the environment. While there is room for growth, the opportunities for moving up are limited and often in the hands of decision-makers who may not always have the best motivations. It is a closed environment, politics can be powerful in a negative way, students sometimes rule the day even when they are in the wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember always the overall mission of education and research for Mexico and latin America. Never allow ego or old stories override what's right and best for the future of the institution and the country.

    Former Employee - Professor in Mexico, Distrito Federal (Mexico)

    I worked at Tecnológico de Monterrey full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    NOTHING SO GREAT TO SPEAK OF THIS SCHOOL IT IS A GREAT LOCAL MEDIUM SCHOOL. NOT FOR INTERNTIONAL STUDENTS. IF YOU NEED SUCCESS YOU WILL THINK WORST SCHOOL

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and holidays and intellectually stimulating work. Students are very nice, and co-workers are generally easy to get along with and fun. The campus facitilies are all excellent.

    Cons

    Long hours, last minute meetings and events, no work/life balance. Though there are some opportunities for advancement, they are usually given to the boss's favorites first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company values money above all else and that's evident to anyone who works there. More attention should be paid to employees' work/life balance and satisfaction.

    I have been working at Tecnológico de Monterrey part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The hire process was quick and straightforward , the demands were clear and the compensation was nothing to complain about.

    Cons

    Sometimes the hours can be counterproductive or too crammed, but with the right tools you can manage.
    The kids in high school are sometimes too stressed and somehow you are contributing to it, if you deviate from the standard way of teaching they notice and the firsts days it is an uphill battle.
