    Pros

    Not. One. Thing. Hopefully prospective applicants will stop at glassdoor first and avoid this farce of a university at all costs.

    Kontras

    The university has completely collapsed in the past few years. Claims that the university’s problems are due to staff shortages from unprecedented growth and faculty discontent stems from expats not understanding the culture are simply lies. Do your research - the previous president went on a rampage and was fired, or rather silently moved to another plush government job. In the aftermath, incompetent... administrators continue to literally rip everything apart in an attempt to placate higher powers who obviously don’t know what they want. Administrators, deans, chairs, and managers are mostly unqualified puppets barking orders and have absolutely no understanding how to manage people, let alone run a university. They are now hiring anyone with a pulse so don’t expect anything to get better. The quality of the undergraduates is atrocious; indifferent and ill-prepared students who blatantly cheat and plagiarize. The courses I taught were continually “dumbed down” so everyone could pass. These programs cannot even be compared to real accredited degrees. In fact, they don’t even measure up to high school diplomas. I’m amazed that they’ve been able to hang on to accreditation, but according to all the rumors, seriously doubt they have done so legitimately. Pay and benefits have seriously eroded and have not kept up with the high cost of living in the UAE. Forget savings, especially if you have children, as school fees subsidies no longer cover costs. The tyrannical push for faculty to publish research to improve rankings is comical, especially given that NO support is offered. I was personally embarrassed to affiliate myself with this “university”. Colleagues tended to fly under the radar and managed to do the minimal amount possible out of fear or indifference. Morale is low and the environment is toxic. The human resource department is extremely dysfunctional probably because, like most departments, they can’t keep competent people from leaving.

    Rat an das Management

    Keep posting those fake positive reviews since lying will definitely save your reputation. Can’t say it better than a previous reviewer: “Shut it down. This place is such a joke the "honest" thing to do would be to pass out diplomas at the door. That's all they're worth.”

    Pros

    Most colleagues are good at sticking together when times get tough but everyone is too scared and powerless to really give the support people need here. This is sad because ZU has such a wealth of experience and diversity that could be channeled to make an excellent place of teaching and learning.

    Kontras

    General Education is still the worst part of the university with faculty facing regular threats and intimidation from its management. Even when male students threaten or offend female faculty with anti-women insults, the management does nothing to support its female faculty in the name of "cultural sensitivity".

    Rat an das Management

    Replace UC management if you truly value your student's education and the welfare of your faculty.

    Pros

    Good salary and modern buildings

    Kontras

    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.

    Rat an das Management

    Change, be transparent and stop the gangs
