    Exclusively remarkable workplace to be attached with.

    Current Employee - Research Assistant in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates)

    Pros

    Salary is very attractive out here.

    Unprofessional way to handle new employees.

    Current Employee - FULL PROFESSOR in Al ‘Aïn (Morocco)
    Current Employee - FULL PROFESSOR in Al ‘Aïn (Morocco)

    I have been working at United Arab Emirates University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    not many pros, even salaries that look fine, are not that good when you take in consideration that there is no pension plan, no free good education as in developed countries, etc...

    Cons

    no advancement really, they don't invest in staff, discriminatory policies against expat staff, even officially different rules and privileges for expat and national staff, huge discrepancies in salaries between national and expat staff
    Generally, they don't even know and care about their staff. Finally, you get the feeling that they don't care about good education.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing can really fix this place, it's beyond recovery... Mindset needs to be changed and that's nearly impossible. I think the country has placed wrong people to lead this university.

    I have been working at United Arab Emirates University full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    few good colleagues, few good students

    Cons

    corrupted environment, many things happen behind curtains, you can only succeed on unethical basis
    benefits do not cover good housing and schools!
    briefly - stay away, it's all fake!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get real! if you are interested in education and research, you are on a very wrong way... so it seems you are not
