    I have been working at AACSB International full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Everything this company does is to serve their members and their employees. There are no other motives. BENEFITS. The people. The food that always happens to be in the break room. The views from the break room. The office environment is relaxed, productive and open with lots of natural light. Jeans for smart casual business attire Mon-Fri.

    Cons

    Company has almost 100 employees, so depending on the role there may not be opportunities for advancement right away. They do give opportunities to advance to those who earn it, so I wouldn't let this deter someone from applying.

    Pros

    Diverse employees to serve the diverse organizations that we support. What stuck out to me most was the strong emphasis on office culture and interpersonal relationships upon hiring -- many people may be suitable to perform a job, but AACSB prioritizes those who will do well working with the current staff, who for the most part have developed cordial, professional and genuine relationships with each other. AACSB offers...

    Cons

    Some departments have a tendency to be more clique-ish than others, with their members socializing with each other exclusively, not attending company-wide events and at times not extending the level of hospitality and camaraderie that the majority of the office maintains. There is also sometimes a dramatic imbalance in workload between colleagues that would probably be addressed if it were brought to HR, but is often...

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps consider a more empathetic approach when having periodic meetings/examining the team you support and their workload -- be open to their concerns and think about shifting/balancing responsibilities to prevent overload. We have many great temp positions that may be a good way to hire on extra help for some colleagues.

    Benefits, money to splurge, fancy travel, view from the lunch room

    Advice to Management

    Create a globalized work environment that is goes beyond the paper. Educate staff on welcoming new ideas, motivate staff, and help staff when they report issues to HR, hire people with experience on the field of higher education and experience doing business in Latin America, that have empathy and aren’t arrogant. The application pre-screening site is unnecessarily long and scares away valuable talent.

    I have been working at AACSB International

    Pros

    Great benefits which most employers don't give such as a generous 401(k) match, paid parking, and commuter allowance. Also in a great location and close to many community events.

    Cons

    Poor management and they don't care if someone leaves. CEO is very removed from daily operations in Tampa office but spends lots of time in the company's other offices. HR is non-approachable, and doesn't respond to most requests because they claim they are too busy. Very top heavy with way too many VP's and some are a total waste of time and money.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what employees have to say. When someone leaves, ask yourself why and do an exit interview. Stop promoting people who don't deserve to be promoted. Too many top level management that do nothing.

    Great work/life balance and great organization with a lot of exposure for professional development. Non-profit organization working with inspiring volunteers from all over the world. A lot of organizational-wide appreciation initiatives for staff.

    Cons

    Unnecessary meetings, no balance or structure for appropriate communication channels.
