Bad place to work

They know how to play with the loopholes in grading system. A strong politics is being played in department and mainly ruled by expat Arab faculty. Their main focus is how to keep superior happy for their job security.

Pros

Paid summer vacations and free airline ticket every year.

Cons

Poor management, politics among faculty, no development, poor research budget

An interesting place to work

CBE in QU is an interesting place where it is AACSB accredited. Work is stressful, competitive, but worth it. Teaching is a nice experience! Funds are available yet competitive,

Lovely environment of science and its implementation

Qatar University is an interactive place with diversity in nationalities, mentalities, and backgrounds. It is a place you can learn and express your skills at the same time. The willingness to work towards the prosperity of the organization is the vision of each member of the team.

Very Friendly and Rewarding Experience.

My time at Qatar University was extremely rewarding and helped me developed my administrative skills and communication skills with others. A typical day included chatting to students assisting them with career decisions. It was lovely to communicate with my colleagues as they were very helpful and welcoming at the same time. The workplace culture was very relaxed and provided me with a home feeling. I would highly recommend others to work at Qatar University.

Productive and Fufilling work

A typical work day at the writing lab consists of seeing a succession of students on a per appointment bases. The students each come with a piece of writing that they need assistance with and my job was to guide them in completing successfully. I learned how to be a leader and how operate at a professional capacity here. The culture was laid back so long as your work was up to snuff. The hardest part of the job was managing students that sought to be spoon fed in place of being taught. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing those whom put in the work improve over time.

Pros

Motivating Work

Cons

Having to decline students that did not want to be helped
