    I have been working at IE International Institution full-time

    Pros

    IE's very organic company structure makes it fairly simple for employees to move around the institution between departments and areas when opportunities arise. There is also an undercurrent of entrepreneurial attitude which means that any employee can develop projects of their own interest within their positions if so inclined.

    Cons

    The very same organic company structure makes for a lot of operational inefficiencies that often hamper good initiatives and allow politics to play too much of a role. There is also very little support structure for employees, so it's basically what you make out of it. Also, most of the employees are former students which makes for a slightly "inbred" environment.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously consider a deep restructuring of all areas of the school as it would allow for an improved internal professionalization of the internal services it offers and would be reflected in a improvement of external services as well.
