    I worked at IE Business School full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good Reputation. Interesting Professional Colleagues. International Environment. Competitive pay and decent work-life balance.

    Cons

    Gender and Class Biased. It's Right-Wing politically orientation constrain personal growth . Obsessive focus on Clientelism over quality of knowledge produced. Very Obscure company dynamics mostly based on personal-lobby over merits. Complete dissociation between what they sell and what workers and students find once inside. Lots of back-stabbing.

    Advice to Management

    Too many incompetent workers and bad management for a business oriented school-university!
