    I worked at Laureate Education full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Laureate Education is a place where you are invited to propose new ideas and work hard to convince people to adopt it. Once done, you receive the funding you need and get rewarded for your success.

    Cons

    A dynamic environment, it can be hard for certain profiles to adapt to rapidly changing strategies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep challenging the status quo of education and maintain students at the center of everything you do.
