    "Associate Professor in Education"

    Pros

    UAEU equipped me with deep knowledge and high skills in my major. It is the place where you will find the challenge and succeeded. Today the faculty of education is NCATE accredited and the teacher preparation programs match the international standards.

    Cons

    Sometimes a faculty member teaches courses which is not in his/her specialty. Actually, I have taught courses in early childhood for more than ten years, in addition to my major courses. If I look it from positive preservative, I have learned a lot.

    I worked at United Arab Emirates University full-time

    Pros

    Salary is good for single people or double income couples. Work load isn't too demanding. Students are very kind and respectful. Coordinators are excellent and receptive to suggestions. New campus is comfortable and has a lot of facilities for staff and students. Plenty of PD if you want it and not much pressure if you don't. Al Ain is one of the best cities in the region- not too crowded and close to Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The weather is fantastic from November-April.

    Cons

    Upper management is constantly changing- no one stays in charge for more than two years- this causes a lot of confusion and inconsistency (you have to be flexible to work here). Cost of living is increasing rapidly in the country and there has been no pay rise since 2007. Instructors with children don't make enough to save- school fees are very very expensive. Programs like the University Foundations Program are in danger of being cancelled- if this happens, it will happen suddenly without warning- having a long-term plan doesn't work here.
