    Very bad place, does not value its people

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

    Prosnot 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...

    Consno 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 Senior ManagementNothing 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.

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

    Run away!

    Professor (Current Employee)
    Al ‘Aïn (Morocco)

    Prosfew good colleagues, few good students

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

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