    Former Employee - Director of Programs and Departments

    I worked at Tecnológico de Monterrey full-time (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.

    I worked at Tecnológico de Monterrey full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Intellectually stimulating work, students are nice and most co-workers are easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Benefits and salary could improve substantially, and there is a lot of bureaucracy in everything you do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Directors of several divisions are tied to the bureaucracy mentioned before, and limits their intentions to help people succeed.

    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 (less than an 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.
