    Pros

    the students i worked with are amazing, the lifestyle and pay was great, especially for a recent grad. I was also with a great group of people, learned a lot while I was here. Great work life balance.

    Cons

    unfortunately experiences are variable depending on the group of people you are with. the expatriate population here is fairly small and social ones in their early twenties are even fewer and further between.

    I have been working at Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar full-time

    Pros

    WCM-Q is a great place to build your career and professional development. The institution provides benefits towards education advancements, various training courses and learning opportunities. I was lucky to have a great and supportive boss, who provides every opportunity for growth and constant guidance and mentorship.

    Cons

    Silo Mentality within teams - Lack of transparency during different organizational changes - a severe issue of accountability and ownership.

    Advice to Management

    Bring teams together. Promote "no-blame" culture.

    I have been working at Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar full-time

    Pros

    Good pay. Recreational activities and facilities. Discounts and that's it.

    Cons

    There is nothing nice to say about this company. Except for the salary. Everybody is stuck up in their own desk not doing anything. The department heads are racists as if they own you. Everybody is full of themselves and always say that there is a hierarchy here as if you are a slave and you can't talk to anybody "higher" than you. If they don't like you, they will threaten you until you can not focus on your work anymore. Nobody guides you but yourself and it's a blame and shame culture. No one wants to own up to their mistakes and points fingers instead. They would degrade every inch of you if you made a simple mistake as if they are perfect. Your own team will throw you under the bus instead of helping you. Managers are lazy and scared that's why they always hide under their desks. To compensate everything, they will cry to get the sympathy of others. They only take credit of what you have done. Sad to say this is an American Instituition but with bunch of self proclaimed "naturalized" citizen of whatever country.

    Advice to Management

    Have some ethics and values training for every directors and managers. You need leaders not just bosses. Staff needs someone who will guide them not critize them. The managers needs to communicate with their staff if there was something wrong instead of going behind their backs and say things that are not true. If it wasn't for the money, everyone would leave.

    I have been working at Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay
    Holidays
    Conditions (accommodation, water, power.. etc)

    Cons

    The culture of Cornell is VERY toxic, if you are a worker on the ground who can keep your head down it isn't too bad but you certainly develop a focus on CYA to maintain job security while ignoring delivery.

    Those in senior positions have very shallow capabilities or have also developed the "focus on the money / CYA" attitude. There are a number of very nasty staff from managers to the dean who seem to be allowed to bully others without reproach. The core values of Weill Cornell Medicine are certainly not applied here.

    This is very much a blame environment and it is impossible to defend yourself from accusations. You will lose skills working here as its very chaotic without any strategic or operational direction.

    Advice to Management

    develop a strategic and corresponding operational plans to ensure this place has a direction. Then communicate it to the staff so management can stop building their CV's rather than doing whats best for the organisation.

    If you are only focused on CYA at the expense of others and only care about your pay rather than delivery... leave.
