Be careful
Enrollment Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, MAOctober 31, 2019
The job sounds perfect at first but it’s horrible — you’re either chained to your desk all day doing menial tasks or working yourself to death. There is no in between

Unstable Employment
Staff (Former Employee) –  DubaiSeptember 14, 2019
Short term career always wants new people to run the place. Yearly terminations. Always subject to changes so you have to be adaptable. Small room for growth.

Stay away! Don't bother working here.
Registrar (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, MAMay 29, 2019
1. Lots of favoritism in upper echelons
2. High turnover with 95% of staff working here less than 2 years
3. No initiative for employee retention
4. Most managers lack any kind of management training or know how to groom their direct reports
5. Institutional knowledge is non-existent
6. Great place to work if you are younger than 30 years old
7. No potential for growth; you have to totally change jobs
8. No professional human resources department
9.If one falls out of favor from anyone in the upper echelons or one is starting to get paid too much, they quietly tell you that you will be replaced and then you have about 1 month to find another job.
10. Your entire career depends on who is your manager...if they stay longer than you
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
Low wages

High turnover but great benefits
Academics (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, MADecember 12, 2018
For a school with great classes, faculty and students, the basic infrastructure is lacking in so many ways.

Processes are either non existent or constantly changing.

Some folks in management positions lack sensitivity training and management skills.

Staff members are nicer and more supportive to faculty and students, than to their own colleagues.

No work/life balance.

Constantly putting out fires rather than planning ahead.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
Lack of professionalism, structure, and processes in the company

A place where you can interact with people from pretty much every nationality in the world.
Registrar (Academic Operations) (Former Employee) –  上海市October 24, 2018
One of the best places I have worked in my professional career. Although just like every work places it has its pros and cons. The pros definitely outweigh the cons.

In my job, I got to work with people from more than 50 nationalities. This gives you a unique perspective and makes you not only respect different cultures and perceptions but also makes you understand where they come from in their views and perspectives. Not many employers provided that.

The management and workplace culture constantly looked for ways to improve the organization outlook, which really makes the work itself enjoyable in many different ways.

I would highly recommend anyone to work at this company, as it is probably the best place to work at with countless opportunities to keep improving in terms of personal and professional aspects.

Hult is an amazing place to work
Career Advisor (Former Employee) –  LondonJune 29, 2018
With a really strong and collaborative culture it will suit anyone with a "go get" attitude and the drive to work in a fast paced environment.

Top leadership is great however, mid-level leadership can be very hit and miss and there is not enough training opportunities or career development openings.
Pros
culture
Cons
mid level management

Great place thanks to the culture and students
Graduate Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMarch 29, 2018
In general working at / for Hult IBS is a very interesting and rewarding experience.

The Professors you work with cherish your time and the students are glad to interact with you, learn from your experience and accept your role as important tool to collaborate in the classes. Compared to other schools your duties differ slightly but so does your reputation. You're not seen as the "coffee bringing paperboy" of the professor but as valued member of the staff - by the teachers, the organizational staff as well as the students.

Even though some days can be super packed and some you have to take care of some people in understaffed departments (e.g. know when to not blast in with another small request just because you can but know when their busiest times of the day are and respect that) the work there in itself and in general is a very rewarding one if you cherish working with and for eager young adults helping them shape their minds and future.
