    Je travaille chez Zayed University à temps plein depuis plus de 3 ans

    Avantages

    Good salary and modern buildings

    Inconvénients

    They enjoy ganging and complicating everything. Refunds are always so late and if you are not part of the gang you are not included in any of the overtime opportunities.

    Conseils à la direction

    Change, be transparent and stop the gangs

    Je travaille chez Zayed University à temps plein

    Avantages

    Zayed University (ZU) used to be a dynamic and inspiring place to work, with good colleagues and a healthy atmosphere. Faculty and staff generally worked well together to build a new institution. It was once rated as one of the best employers in the UAE.

    Inconvénients

    The past five years have been increasingly bad as a new regime of leadership has entered. Most good faculty have left due to increased workload, the lowering of academic standards, a failure of the institution to keep pace with the rise of living costs in the UAE (making salaries very uncompetitive), and a new culture of management based solely on compliance. Faculty and staff are severely demoralized (as are the students)....

    Avantages

    some nice students, nice buildings....

    Inconvénients

    Too many to mention here, have a look at previous reviews and it says it all. Hopeless management, completely authoritarian with no questions asked - please avoid if you have any sense of self-worth or an opinion on how things should be done. Your experience and knowledge is not needed here, just kowtow to the deans and you will be fine. Most good people have either left or got fired because they had the guts to stand...

    Conseils à la direction

    I know they read this whenever there is a new review so HI! Advice: stop spending your time and energy removing bad reviews and just make ZU a better place to work... it was once a place to be proud, now it is, as one review called it Woe & Misery... if only people could give it 0 out of 5 instead of the baseline 1 perhaps the management would finally realise that people are not happy - the Emirati staff are not happy...

    Avantages

    There is really very very little positive about this University. Some nice colleagues and thats about it.

    Inconvénients

    Owing to terrible staff morale, deep unhappiness, and resulting high staff turn-over, ZU is continuously seeking staff to work in its mirage in the desert we like to call a University. The following criteria are deemed essential for upcoming revolving door positions. 1. Candidates must be docile, meek and highly deferential to incompetent line managers. These managers are generally less qualified than you,...

    Conseils à la direction

    I am left with two conclusions about you. First, that you have no idea about what is happening in ZU or second that you know and really endorse much of the above. Therefore, you are either incompetent or worse

    Avantages

    Facilities, offices, colleagues, mostly tax free for ex-pats, (except a new 5% VAT was added in 2018 making everything more expensive).

    Inconvénients

    ZU disempowers people; it takes every opportunity to wrangle money out of employees even when there have been no substantial raises for 10 years (salary scale not adjusted for inflation for a decade). While paying less and less (because of cost of living increases), more and more is required of faculty in terms of research, advising, needless paperwork. Most faculty teach 4 classes per semester, with multiple preps.

    Avantages

    Decent pay and benefits. Decent resources such as technology and professional development money. Nice students.

    Inconvénients

    Zero academic standards. Zero support of faculty with regards to academic standards, rigor, or academic honesty. Chief Academic Officer wants to sweep all student complaints and problems under the rug i.e. faculty told to make students happy.

    Conseils à la direction

    Have policies that support the mission of the university and hold to them. Make academics, academic achievement, and rigor a priority. Make a degree from here worthy of its name.

    Inconvénients

    There was a change in management last year. Things are getting worst. Management does not provide any support. Work load is increased. Student number per section increased. Summer course is now double the time it used to be. No promotion. No recognition for efforts and hard work. Employees are avoiding any interaction with the management fearing to lose their job. Turnover is high. Sudden decisions were taken without...

    Inconvénients

    You will be treated like a child while colleagues clammed to get their dean’s approval... you will literally have to sign in as a way of taking attendance.. then we have the dreadful PD week where you have sit and pretend that ZU is a proper university with sensible ways of doing things - and whilst you could be doing something productive you have to sit through endless and pointless talks by colleagues who have been...
