    Avantages

    As a private school they pay quite decently. So if you just need a salary you've come to the right place. They fulfill this part of Maslow's pyramid rather well.

    Inconvénients

    Constant change. Very poor communication. Many lay-offs. Lots of chiefs and few Indians. No opportunities for further development. The company was recently bought by Eurazeo and they are under a lot of pressure to make profit.
    They don't pay for overtime. Watch your back and be ready to be laid off at any moment.
    This school is not recognized by the Swiss government. The real value for the students is the international name and the opportunity to network.

    Conseils à la direction

    Take a good look in the mirror and ask yourselves if this is really what you call 'education'.

    Avantages

    The location and beauty of the campuses are as lovely as you will find anywhere. The facilities are adequate.

    Inconvénients

    Don't know Ms Hou but a lot of her senior management is disingenuous and condescending. Typical "you're not one of us" attitude to anyone below the C level. That's commonplace, but what was awful was that they sponge people's ideas and claim them as their own, which lowers morale and makes staff not want to contribute. Saw them interview candidates just to cannibalize their expertise. If you happen to be interviewed, be aware they often see it as free consulting. Do NOT give them your presentation materials or detailed expertise because they will take it and run.

    Conseils à la direction

    Stealing ideas and trying to do things on the cheap while at the same time parading Glion's #1 rating is bad form. What does it cost to acknowledge the innovations and improvements suggested by others? And worst of all STOP using interviews as free consulting sessions! Had some candidates contact me post-interview and they really let me have it. Thing is, their allegations were 100% correct. So embarrassing.

    Je travaille chez Glion Institute of Higher Education à plein temps (Plus de 3 ans)

    Avantages

    Extremely international, generally very committed and very competent faculty, overall very pleasant and rather hard-working students, friendly work atmosphere amongst faculty, sound faculty-students relationship, reasonably supportive middle management, great facilities, prestigious name.

    Inconvénients

    19th century top management style, Soviet era processes, milking strategy: very heavy, inefficient administrative procedures, little regard for customer and staff satisfaction, command-and-control style of management, "do this or leave" style of "negotiations". Management focusses exclusively on short-term gains (this year's EBITDA) at the expense of long-term performance and vision such as maintaining brand image and differentiating from cheaper alternatives through quality of education and students' experience. Latest trends: 20% extra work for faculty in 2017, no additional pay, less holiday. Lecturers are also strongly encouraged to provide a more personalized service to students and publish research under the school's name ... but are asked to do all of this during their free time.

    Conseils à la direction

    Make sure you move on to your next prey before the market finally notices how much you have damaged the organisation and its reputation, then blame your successors for the subsequent failure.

    Avantages

    Small enough institution so that it is possible to personally know almost everybody. Mostly excellent teaching colleagues with very international backgrounds and a huge amount of knowledge. Very international student body. Most courses are delivered in English.

    Inconvénients

    All the cons of private education: Faculty workload is steadily increasing (more admin work, less vacation, bigger classes, less time to grade), leading to either burnout or a lowering of academic quality.
    As a teacher, you'll possibly have at GIHE a lower salary than a swiss high school teacher, and a lot less vacation!
    Some students are a pain to deal with, but they pay a lot, so they use that power to make faculty life stressful.

    Conseils à la direction

    Listen to your faculty, and do not repeat: "If they (faculty) don't like it, they can leave".
