    Pros

    ZU has good working environment and good facilities with opportunity for professional development. The management keeps track of who is working hard for the institution and rewards for it sooner or later.

    Cons

    The university does not provide transportation to faculties though it provides transportation to students. The housing and education cost is not fully covered. The management is top-down approach that keeps faculties to follow instructions but do not have opportunity to own many institutional plans and decisions.

    I have been working at Zayed University full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Generally good benefits and housingl allowance. International faculty, sweet students and a good lifestyle. Liberal country with good facilities for leisure and entertainment. Long holidays. Very good for single female faculty due to the safe, conservative environment.

    Cons

    It is very hit and miss in terms of which college you want work for. College of Business, Academic Bridge program and College of Arts and Sciences are generally well managed with competent deans, associates and assistants, and satisfied faculty. University College as others have mentioned suffers from endemic lack of any sort of experienced or competent management. This has resulted in an ineffective and fearful faculty through bullying management who are in serious need of restraint by senior managers and board members. Now that students are also complaining about University College managers and newly recruited faculty, high level managers need to intervene.

    I have been working at Zayed University for more than 10 years

    Pros

    easy teaching (just too much of it). good facilities overall. comfortable lifestyle even thought salaries are pathetic

    Cons

    terrible treatment of female faculty and staff. women are underrepresented in management. male students routinely bully female faculty then accuse them of inappropriate behavior. before accepting the job, i fully accepted that women in the middle east have few to no rights but the rhetoric of the university suggests tolerance and respect for all employees. this is not the case at all. women are commonly passed over for promotion (most professors are male, most instructors are female). no support especially for single women who face great challenges in the UAE

    Pros

    Nice students. Good facilities. Nice Colleagues

    Cons

    I attended a meeting today where two colleagues were simultaneously looking for jobs online. That is the environment at ZU. Absolutely everyone in our dept is looking for another job--actively. Faculty complain of random attendance checks in their offices and classes, abusive and dishonest management that harass faculty about office hours, attendance lists, and other inane forms. Do not try and do research here--it is impossible to get any research money. Even though Michael Allen says there is 'a pot of gold.' He needs a new line. Tired of him saying, " I know your C.Vs...I hired you." Get lost. What a corporate waste product.

    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.

    Cons

    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 and experienced management as a matter of urgency.
