Sarah P’s comments: ICS is a well-established school, the largest complaint seems to be that the salary is low however that is a common complaint of any schools in Europe. So many people want to work there that they get away with paying these low salaries because people can afford to ‘break even’ for a few years while they enjoy the culture and then return home.
The trend is for more and more schools being run by organisations such as Nord Anglia, QSI, or ISS to name a few. It makes financial sense for the schools and helps teachers to have stability as they can then more easily apply to other schools in the system. It’s not quite a transfer but things are headed in that direction. Some of these organisations are, of course, more reputable than others however reviews are still listed by schools rather than company so you will need to review a number of schools to get an accurate picture of the organisation.
