    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Most of these reviews are from staff working in the University (one of the Colleges) not the hospital. I don't understand why the general title for this employer is the hospital? It seems to be the default position too, I tried to write a review under 'Sultan Qaboos university' but 'hospital' kept appearing at the end. The hospital is only one part of the university, most staff work in one of the 9 Colleges.

    Cons

    No bright outlook. Falling price of oil has meant many cuts.

    Pros

    very pleasant work colleagues, amiable local staff in admin etc, very pleasant easy going students - the less you ask them to do, the happier they are! Oman is a very pleasant country.

    Cons

    Very poor career development opportunities; top down admin, with consequent very low morale; expats get paid substantially less than local national faculty; plagiarism widespread; very weak intellectual stimulation; salary poor by gulf standard

    Advice to Management

    Work environment is very demotivating. Honor the commitment to pay expats the same as local staff and you may improve morale. Institute a strict plagiarism policy. Match other Gulf salaries.
