    Pros

    You have an opportunity to make great money working as a teacher of ESL, while Saudi Arabia is undergoing massive changes in education on behalf of young women.

    Cons

    It is a very strict environment. There is little to no office space: everyone is elbow to elbow. There is little to no office support. The students frequently make false reports if they do not like the teacher. The teaching community is not supportive of each other due to the undue stress which is caused by changing policies - which occur by the hour. Rules are not rules and policies are not policies; they change as... students object to them. There is also a great deal of bullying, gossip and nastiness ongoing between teachers that the management does little to address. They allow good teachers to be bullied by groups of teachers who break rules and if you don't go along..? It's like being in high school.

    Advice to Management

    Support your staff, make a plan and stick to it. Don't allow the students to have so much power. Do not allow gossiping, bullying and distractions that make the place unpleasant to work --
