    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Easy job. Nobody will ever review your methods or teaching techniques. Do not mess and you won't be in trouble.

    Cons

    Very conservative structure. Any initiative is slow to make it happen if it ever get to happen. Many extra workload without remuneration.

    Advice to Management

    I would review possible incentives for future faculty members. The overall structure is not transparent lacking communication with the faculty.

    Pros

    Ideal place if you fit with its ideological orientation. It has an interesting set of aditional advantages such as a private medical insurance for the whole family, discounts in CEU school, etc. Parking provided for staff. It is sad to say, but compared to other private universities in Madrid this one is rather good for a work place.

    Cons

    Overall it is becoming a less interesting place to be day by day. The decrease in the number of students, along with a number of negligent management decisions which have almost ruined the institution, has increased the pressure on the teaching staff who is less interested in doing a good job. One has to consider that students arriving to private universities are mainly those who don´t pass teh access exams to public universities, so that indicates their studying profile. Media Studies Faculty is crowded, and with the new stdying plans (Bolonia) it will be getting even worse. Private Universities in Spain are not worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Try to adjust your offer to the reality, don´t imagine that your students are not what they are.
    Also, consider that former students are not necessarily the best candidates for teachers. This might seem obvious, but you can´t expect students to appreciate that a teacher is "in the line of the institution" more than "a good professional".
