    I have been working at Hult International Business School full-time

    Pros

    We are entrepreneurial. Anything that is not relevant to improving the student experience is pretty quickly ejected from faculty purview. Moreover, the school treats faculty well, especially if the professor excels at teaching, and contributes time, effort, and dedication outside of the classroom to propel students into their ideal careers.

    Cons

    Sometimes, we are too entrepreneurial, making changes too quickly, without consulting faculty, deans, and students. These changes therefore seem arbitrary, and generate instability. Recent changes to administration and process will hopefully reduces these types of alterations.

    Advice to Management

    We are a large, durable institution. Let's act like it.

    I worked at Hult International Business School part-time

    Pros

    The staff where I worked for in Miami, were very friendly, always celebrating birthdays, overall fun.
    The pay is well for part time, and very flexible hours.
    Overall they do provide an opportunity for postgrad education.
    Only positions they had were telesales in some form or another.

    Cons

    Despite everyone being friendly, when it comes to work, they are very competitive, taking people's applications for school as some sort of competition. It's all about numbers, not quality. Pushing for interviews so they can be sold on a program at the school. They overall don't really care. As long as they can get the application fee paid by a probable student or even confirmed, that's all that matters. People who are called ask for some time before being contacted again, yet the callers ignore many of that and call anyways just to get their numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Ease up on the call volume, maybe then people wouldn't hang up so often.

    I have been working at Hult International Business School full-time

    Pros

    -All the perks from EF (insurance pretty good, lots of free food events, networking and mingling, exercise classes, general "fun" young office stuff)
    -AMAZING junior staff. Hard working and professional coworkers who sacrifice evenings and weekends to make sure everything happens.
    -You get the opportunity to dabble in all sorts of things. Your role is very fluid, and you will help in events to departments not your own, always. Great facetime with students, too.

    Cons

    -Those junior staff members? There are too few of these people, forcing them to work even harder. The work for junior staff is considered entry-level, but is difficult, and complex work. A round of applause for those paid too little to work to the bone. Hult dispenses of junior staff at about 2 years, very few make it longer.
    -Lots of requests to work late, weekends, come in super early. Very "all hands on deck"
    -Rude students. Paying for tuition doesn't make me your slave, nor does it automatically grant you your degree. But that's just higher ed sometimes.
    -Would love to see upper management not treat their "lower-level" coworkers like dirt. As well, consider respect respecting the space. Some well-high-up people consider the offices of those beneath them like a trashcan. Reflects poorly.

    Advice to Management

    -This batch of students was a significant upgrade. It's easier to work hard when the students are working hard, too
    -Re-evaluate the budget. Non-profit education means considering a cut to the 6+ figure salaries of the top, and considering spreading some wealth to the people really doing the work at the bottom
    -Look at the areas of pressure, and hire MORE. PEOPLE. in those areas. Even temp or part-time staff!!!

    I have been working at Hult International Business School part-time

    Pros

    Students are smart, diligent and engaged assures you that knowledge taught is appreciated and examples of experience respected. Faculty are great and make you feel at home being part of the family.

    Cons

    Although faculty has an amazing line of industry professionals with Ph.D.'s, the school has a low number of (pure) research staff in the leading fields, pertinent to a business school.

    Advice to Management

    Research and publications will boost rankings, and ultimately prestige. A tried and true strategy of various schools to gain prestige.

    Cons

    One year is a short timeframe to develop external networks

    Advice to Management

    Alter the start and end of the academic year to give the students greater change of working out their H1B
