    Ich arbeite seit mehr als 10 Jahren bei Zayed University (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    research-active faculty leave the university as soon as they can leaving the university continuously under-staffed and that means we are always hiring new people. no attempt to try to retain current faculty. in fact the recent round of renewals punished all long-term faculty by awarding them no or half contracts

    Kontras

    new research expectations are ridiculous when you consider that faculty are teaching larger and more classes than ever before, have little to no financial support, and must complete endless and pointless paperwork. stress levels are too high. it's amazing more people have not collapsed under the pressure. there is blatant inequity too as faculty without phds in the english program paid more than phd-holding faculty in...

    management do not listen to anyone. they focus only on keeping their high salaries and doing as little as possible. therefore this question is irrelevant for zayed university

    Pros

    There are none to speak of at present

    Kontras

    The fact that nothing has been done to the university college management despite numerous complaints both to HC and publicly on sites such as this is a slap in the face to all of those faculty that were sacked last year for no reason and for the rest of us that are stuck here literally hiding in our offices to remain off of the dean's radar. As another poster said, it is clear that nobody really cares about the faculty...

    Quit sweeping the complaints about the UC deans office under the rug. Hire competent managers with morals and actual communication and leadership skills to run UC.

    Pros

    ZU used to be a good place to work with interesting students and colleagues and chance for real teaching and learning in the classroom and beyond

    Kontras

    Told last week I was being evicted from my apartment (with about 10 other colleagues). We spoke to landlord and told ZU housing forgot to renew contract in time and they "are tired to dealing with them". No support or even answers from HC (who refuse to even answer emails from Dubai). Needless to say, half our group are resigning!

    Rat an das Management

    Such a shame that ZU has fallen apart. Focus on accreditation and Emiritization has meant your strong expat workforce are leaving. Apart from HC, I also agree with others that UC deans' office needs to be entirely replaced with sensitive and capable people

    Ich habe für mehr als 3 Jahre bei Zayed University gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    salaries were competitive and reasonable when i joined ZU. also school fees and housing provision. these have all been effectively frozen for 5+ years. as a result, the great faculty have left or are going.

    Kontras

    i turned in my resignation a few weeks after the official resignation date. i was penalized by having half my end of service money deducted. then more money was deducted by the HR department for mysterious "damages". leaving was distressing and HR were terrible (this is one of the worst units). i was very disappointed to hear that there were recent cases of people resigning on the spot and leaving the country with all...

    Pros

    Hopefully the new administration will fix the problems and make ZU great again

    Kontras

    The atmosphere here is dismal. I do not know how the students will fare with all of the burned out and in some cases angry faculty, many who are simply stuck at ZU with no place else to go. It did not used to be this way but thanks to low salaries, a rotating senior administration and disgraceful behaviour by some of the deans, morale is low and enthusiasm even lower. I have never seen such a lack of energy on a first...

    Listen to the faculty. Even listen to the students, they know that the best faculty are gone or are leaving and it is negatively affecting their education. As others have said, investigate the deans office in university college, those faculty seem the most miserable.

    Pros

    Strong camaraderie among faculty. An exceptional group of colleagues.

    Kontras

    The lowest salaries and highest stress levels in the region. If you’re in University College (UC) or you’re a professor in the majors, the majority of the students expect you to do the work for them in every manner imaginable. If this doesn’t go smoothly for them, it will become an issue for you. The educational “standards of learning” (ZULOS) are mapped out in endless committees and meetings...yet most students pass...

    Create admissions standards and then academic integrity for students. Quit bullying faculty. Get a grip on some basic ethics since you tout yourselves as educational leaders in the region.

    Pros

    it's hard to find anything positive to say about zayed university at the moment! the few positive benefits of working here have vanished!

    Kontras

    students can be difficult. just give them high grades and overlook their cheating. dress up in national dress once a year and you will score high SELEs. keep your head down is the mantra of all the faculty. self-publish whatever you can to keep your job. what you do after hours is fine (e.g. open a salon).

    management do not even meet the faculty any more!

    Pros

    interesting part of the world to be in - for a short while. Don't plan on staying here for long - there is no job security here

    Kontras

    4 of my department, including long-term colleagues, have not had their contracts renewed. This is basically firing. no explanation given.

    almost all the management - from chairs to provost - need to go

    Pros

    ZU used to have a good reputation in the UAE and in the region. Faculty used to be respected. Since the summer, the university is imploding and most faculty are leaving. A disgrace to those faculty and students who set up such a great place.

    Kontras

    After working at ZU for 7 years my contract (and 3 of my colleagues) was not renewed, despite my good annual evaluations, high student scores, and strong service record. ZU is now run without any transparency or clarity. I do not know how any faculty can be expected to be research active while teaching so many classes.

    Rat an das Management

    You cannot not renew faculty contracts without explanation

    Pros

    Great colleagues, good facilities, most students are remarkably friendly and the chance to make a difference and work closely with a very different culture.

    Kontras

    Salary has increased only 2% in over 5 years and the UAE has experienced considerable inflation in the same period. There is an atmosphere that seems to have turned against Western faculty and a new obsession with clock watching and cutting costs, which I believe will be to the detriment of the students' learning. Finally senior leadership is virtually invisible, the university should put in properly qualified, motivated...

    Rat an das Management

    Realise that faculty need to do overtime because the salaries have in NO WAY kept pace with galloping costs of living in the UAE. If you think the education we currently provide through well-qualified faculty is expensive, as they say, try ignorance.
