    I worked at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you're lazy, inept management will not notice.

    If you like to gossip, you are in paradise

    If you don't know how to do the job you are hired/promotes for, just laugh at the boss's jokes and you will be fine. You are allowed to put the patient in danger by performing tasks out of your scope of practice to stroke your own personal ego.

    If you're a suck up who failed at your previous job(s), you can erase the past, lie on your linked in profile, and become an Assistant Manager.

    Cons

    Where do I begin?

    They will hire you for a position, bring you halfway across the world, and a month into your start date. Then put you in a different position and tell you "sorry you were mis-informed."

    Many Western administration personnel are not qualified for their positions.

    They have chased out many good Western nurses. There are a few great nurses that have stuck around, but mostly bunch of spineless "yes doctor/yes boss" nurses.

    Informatics department is a joke. Electronic charting is full of errors and much more complicated than it needs to be.

    They leave fake reviews to better their score.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up...realize that your expats in C-Suite are ripping you off. You have lost a lot of money bringing good nurses over, only to have them leave frustrated. Listen to the complaints from the staff in the trenches. It's not a coincidence that hundreds complain on your surveys and your Glassdoor rating is low. Good caregivers do not like dishonest, lazy managers. They will continue to leave.

    I have been working at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People on the 'shop' floor still try to be there for each other, there are pockets of hope amongst caregivers who work hard to be compassionate to each other as well the patients. There are a handful of senior managers that still believe in the potential of humanity and attempt to treat people equally regardless of race or nationality.

    Cons

    The UAE nationals that arrived in the recent wave of Emiratisation have been set up for failure, through dishonest recruiting practices and ill prepared hiring managers. Inequity is spread across the hospital (vertical and horizontal) , perks and promotions are dependent on who you know not what you do.

    Advice to Management

    Stop seeking quick results and focus on your most valuable asset - your people. Throwing money and glam at situations will not fix some of the deep seated issues.

    Pros

    Amazing people with , lovely environment, feel part of a bigger goal. A goal to improve patient care to an incomparable level.

    Cons

    The only negative comment I have to say about the Company is, I wish I was there for longer. Such a lovely experience.

    Advice to Management

    Invest into Research and Development from a Technology standpoint. Also, an internship programme would be really good for other people to have the same great experience I had.

    Pros

    Salary and meeting other cultures, beautiful setting and good equipment.

    Cons

    Managers, bulling, favoritism, working overtime is mandatory, no lunch if required, over controlled environment, HR is useless and even harmful is you contact them...

    Advice to Management

    Be competent, listen to employees opinions, don't allow bulling, request overtime but don't force us to do it, respect lunch time: we work hard and deserve a break as well.

    I worked at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi full-time

    Pros

    Best place to work if you :
    a) are incompetent
    b) are a Westerner
    c) love status quo
    d) can appear to be working while not working at all

    Cons

    Discrimination based on nationality is rampant which is evident from the salary structure to insurance coverage provided to the employees. The leadership is either apathetic about the current situation or is plainly incompetent. There is no defined career path. HR is a disaster.

    Advice to Management

    People will continue to leave, as they are at the moment, if you refuse to listen to employee's complains. For reference, just look at your own surveys and Glassdoor reviews.

    Pros

    CCAD is one of the friendliest places I have ever worked with a shared vision to put Patients First.

    Cons

    It would be great if all Caregivers could be located in the same building rather than having to move between two locations.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
