    I have been working at Hult International Business School full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    friendly working environment, young diverse colleagues, great location of campuses in London, fun place , after-work drinks and celebrations. The requirements are not very high and there are opportinities to move within a company

    Cons

    low pay, swede style corporate structure which means that you are only valueble if you are a friend of someone from the company, noone cares about your qualifications. The job is too relaxed. High turnover of employees

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay. This will help to keep current employees motivated.

    Pros

    Exposure to lots of different platforms and jobs outside of your role, some good perks - lots of events, trips for students you can join

    Cons

    Expected to fulfil much more than in your contract. Expected to work longer hours often. Micro managed by senior management. Most senior management have very little people skills and care more about satisfaction statistics than anything else.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate more on staff happiness and workloads, find a way to retain talent better

    Pros

    Fair pay for the role, travel opportunities, pretty office

    Cons

    Get used to office politics, your manager will throw you under the bus to get a head. Terrible working hours, NO work life balance, expect your work to be your life. If you aren't at 150% happy to be there every day, loving selling executive education not the place for you. They are more focused on meeting their individual sales targets than what is in the best interest for the student.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with more respect, and realized that they are people first, workers second. Change the hours as that is the most common complaint among all.

    I worked at Hult International Business School full-time

    Pros

    Great office, international colleagues where you're surrounded by different cultures and languages although this is normal in London.
    Being part of a larger company means you can transfer to other departments/teams so opportunities for a long career with them.
    Lots of perks - free food, happy hours once a month, on-site gym & yoga, company box at the O2.

    Cons

    Their sales techniques are very aggressive towards students. They care more about their sales targets than providing a premium level education for the premium prices that they charge. No wonder they can afford the perks...
    Progression is more about internal politics and popularity than based on merit.

    Advice to Management

    Find out what drives and motivates the individuals in the teams, and use that to engage them, rather than throw out bonuses and prizes.

    Pros

    Lots of travel, great colleagues, lots of opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    Long working hours, flat Swede-style corporate structure means that those who play political games well and build a network often progress faster than those with the most skill.

    I worked at Hult International Business School full-time

    Pros

    Hult is a global operation, fast-moving with opportunities. It is very sales-focused, and very aggressive in its recruitment of students.

    Cons

    There is a very high turnover of staff, and if you want an employer with values, that rewards loyalty and has a long term vision then it is probably not for you

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your staff

    Pros

    very nice modern office in Chelsea, friendly team and pleasant environment

    Cons

    The role is essentially a telesales position and involves endless hours of cold calls, lead sources are sometimes more than questionable. Working hours (part time) can include working on Saturdays and from 4pm to 8pm in the evening.
