    Pros

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

    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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Hold cross cultural conversations among managers and employees to explore cultural references. There is a great opportunity to create grass roots diplomacy and understanding between the Gulf and the world.
