    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 Management

    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.

    They provide all the needed resources and apply professional policies.

    The payment, mostly. Also, the career program is absent.

    A careers program could be useful.

    I worked at Tecnológico de Monterrey full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It´s very flexible sometimes, you have five weeks vacation per year, you work with young people(students), a lot and free training, good persons work there, good job environment between the proffesors

    Cons

    Most of the management people is far away to be real leaders, they do not represent the values of the institution.

    Advice to Management

    It is urgently required to change the environment professors work in. Even though the efforts has been made, there are no empowerment to the professors, they depend entirely of financial decision of he managers.

    I have been working at Tecnológico de Monterrey full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you can say that you work at a place which is in the middle of a revolution to change the way we educate the new generations, then I think you have the greatest job in the world. That's how it feels working at Tec right now.

    Cons

    You have to be willing to commit in the long run to the project. Even if we could transform the entire university in an instant, it will take us close to 5 years to graduate the first generation with the new educational model. Unlike other sectors, education takes time.

    Pros

    Good team, daily lunch benefits, location

    Cons

    LOW SALARY, study benefit is not good enough (only provides one class per period which means that instead of finishing a part time master in 2 years it takes at least double of that time)

    Advice to Management

    level salaries (salary is so lo that the employee have troubles with living conditions)

    Pros

    Since it's been developed by a small team, the opportunity to build great things are easy to find.

    Cons

    Extremely challenging. Which comes sometimes with its downsides, since we are students that have to learn as well develop the product.

    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 Management

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