    MIU as an Employer

    Language Instructor (Current Employee) Cairo (Egypt)

    ProsGood work loads, average salaries, good reputation.

    ConsManagement is not academic, not a highly professional institution. No open doors policy, very small room for opinion and innovation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake some room for discussions and new ideas for the benefit of the university, some people who work for MIU are highly skilled and dedicated and would be of much benefit if they are more empowered.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    The most horrible job experience :

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Cairo (Egypt)

    ProsFlexibility for sick leaves and vacations
    Nice Colleagues

    ConsHorrible work loads with no appreciation
    Horrible salary cuts

    you can get easily loaded with other people's work for any reason without any heads up, training , instructions or even appreciation

    Net Salary decreasing as result of continuous monthly salary cuts
    No respect from head management to employees even academics

    No communication between departments which leads to no one knowing the exact answer to any questions about anything or any event

    basically lost personal life to be able to cope with the increased work load......no appreciation on the other hand !!

    salary can be cut to HALF at one time and increased for double in other times !!! depending on the university owner's mood despite continuously increasing work load and increasing evaluation..... so forget about your employee rights and professionalism....

    Medical Doctors and accounting staff treat employees with no respect AT ALL...accounting staff treat employees like they are begging them for their own money ...always frowning and talking to employees with literally disgust

    bear in mind you will have to check your monthly cuts carefully...sometimes they are from the university...sometimes they are by mistake from the accouting department...you will need alot of effort to revise detailed salary cut to show them the mistake yourself......happens all the time to everyone working there

    forget about trying to change anything........it is very centralized and bureaucratic

    employees, academics and students rights are completely overlooked, not in their sight or vision any more

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    MIU has a good collegial atmosphere but is terribly bureaucratic

    Instructor (Current Employee) Cairo (Egypt)

    ProsBeing a college professor is a respectable profession and everyone at MIU treats you with respect. Colleagues and academic superiors are great to work with. In some departments you have space to set your curriculum. There is free transportation for staff. Local medical insurance.

    ConsLow salary. Work day is 8 hours, but traffic is horrible in the afternoons so it often takes several hours to get home even if you live in the closest neighborhood in Cairo. The university itself is obsessed with exams and all our work is exam oriented. There are often unexplained deductions in salary so you need to be vigilant and follow up with the accounting department. The 5 weeks of exam proctoring per term are hard.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI suggest that management focus more on the education rather than obsessing over exams, paperwork, and swiping our ID cards everywhere.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
