Great students, but terrible administration and leadership
Science Faculty (Former Employee) –  DohaSeptember 4, 2019
Qatar Foundation is a world class employer, but many people in leadership positions are not effective, skilled, or even qualified. The technology in the classrooms is adequate, but dated. The class sizes are small, but there are too many in-equities between faculty. The administration plays favorites, and does not treat all faculty with fairness and respect.
Pros
Many benefits, and few costs.
Cons
Cost of living, and little to do other than shopping.

Multicultural setting, but it's not for everyone.
Head of Institutional Research (Former Employee) –  DohaAugust 20, 2019
QF is an ok place to work, but has a lot of management problems. Conflicting ideas and agendas, radical shifts in priorities, and incompetence among leadership are some of the biggest problems.

The setting and the resources are great, and the people are often wonderful to work with.

Personal Assistant (PA) (Former Employee) –  DohaApril 29, 2019
No day was the same, helping children and parents, adapting to different cultures and respecting them which is very important in a different country with very different cultures and ways of living. I learned to manage different types of personality and how to work with them keeping an efficient, friendly and calm running of the office and reception; work was always completed in a timely manner and I learned how to prioritize workload by working in a team and by always being supportive and fair in allocating the days challenges. The hardest part of the job was the language especially the written language, Arabic is a very difficult and different language, fortunately my work colleague who was Jordanian was amazing as she spoke English and Arabic and assisted many times. The best part of the job was the satisfaction of
been able to help children and parents at the same time supporting the teachers, teacher assistant and the Principals of the school, fantastic 3 years!
Pros
Free snacks tea and coffee
Cons
Often worked though dinner hour as the school reception was very busy all day.

Quantity Surveyor (Former Employee) –  QatarApril 7, 2019
Excellent place to work. You will have to work long hours but it’s one of the better Qatar companies. It’s a great cultural experience in which you will work with several different nationalities with this company. Work is slow now and that’s the reason I’m looking for other employment.

Senior Custodial Supervisor (Soft Services) (Current Employee) –  Doha, QADecember 5, 2018
A typical work day deals with operational requirements of various facilities that we receive through the CAFM system. Aside from numerous emails of concerns, requirements and issues that are responded in the most timely manner.

Working in QF for almost 10 years has thought me to deal with a diverse nationality environment and how to handle the challenges alongside with it. To work in a world class organisation and to fit in to the standards of the foundation.

The management is structured in a way that accountability and ownership are clearly defined for each directorate. That transparency and community interaction is observed.
Pros
Short work hours
Cons
Monitored attendance
