    English teacher

    Pros

    Benefits which included free housing in the ECCH housing complex, school tuition (for children), wi-fi, utilities, and lots of community programs and activities available.

    Cons

    Starting to take away benefits such as travel allowance to bare minimum, was going to have individuals pay for their own wi-fi. These are just some examples. There's a saying when QF takes something away from employees and essentially 'breaks contract' -- the saying is "it's so QF"

    Pros

    The perks and benefits are excellent Diverse teaching staff from all over the world

    Cons

    You have to sign on for another school year in November. After signing though, the school may change certain things, ie. teaching structure, teaching assignments, class sizes, etc. So keep this in mind when deciding whether or not to stay another year.

    The opportunity to contribute to the development of Qatar through education and the chance to understand the Gulf Region. Good salaries and benefits.

    Understanding the Qatari way of managing a business. Different concepts of time, authority and resource allocation mean you must remain flexible and willing to give up your pre-conceptions.
