    I worked at Misr International University (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was a great experience to teach graduate students a course where they used it professionally in their career in the field of advertising

    Cons

    A semester is usually too short to give the full information you want to share and give to students, but still they get to learn a lot in a short time.

    Advice to Management

    If you are passionate about what you do its always a pleasure to give more and have an input.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Misr International University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility for sick leaves and vacations
    Nice Colleagues

    Cons

    Horrible work loads with no appreciation
    Horrible salary cuts

    you can get easily loaded with other people's work for any reason without any heads up, training , instructions or even appreciation

    Net Salary decreasing as result of continuous monthly salary cuts
    No respect from head management to employees even academics

    No communication between departments which leads to no one knowing the exact answer to any questions about anything or any event

    basically lost personal life to be able to cope with the increased work load......no appreciation on the other hand !!

    salary can be cut to HALF at one time and increased for double in other times !!! depending on the university owner's mood despite continuously increasing work load and increasing evaluation..... so forget about your employee rights and professionalism....

    Medical Doctors and accounting staff treat employees with no respect AT ALL...accounting staff treat employees like they are begging them for their own money ...always frowning and talking to employees with literally disgust

    bear in mind you will have to check your monthly cuts carefully...sometimes they are from the university...sometimes they are by mistake from the accouting department...you will need alot of effort to revise detailed salary cut to show them the mistake yourself......happens all the time to everyone working there

    forget about trying to change anything........it is very centralized and bureaucratic

    employees, academics and students rights are completely overlooked, not in their sight or vision any more

    Pros

    Good work loads, average salaries, good reputation.

    Cons

    Management is not academic, not a highly professional institution. No open doors policy, very small room for opinion and innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Make some room for discussions and new ideas for the benefit of the university, some people who work for MIU are highly skilled and dedicated and would be of much benefit if they are more empowered.
