Qatar University: a grinding wheel

The university is built on the shoulders of hard working foreign faculty. Besides that the university has no credentials. The place is not very welcoming and it never feels like home. In some ways, this is the way the University intended it to be. There is a lot of discrimination between local and foreign staff. Local staff can earn multitude of what foreign staff earn although their work effort is minimal at best. Students are of extremely poor caliber.


Decent salary


Discrimination, poor student levels, no job security

One of the biggest organizations in Qatar

Qatar University is the oldest and biggest university in Qatar. I enjoyed working in big multinational team. I was excited to learn new things everyday. Although we might have tough times with extraordinary workload and deadlines, we had great time when we get acceptance for our papers.

Get In the Right Department

There is a huge difference in an individuals experience based on their department. Overall, if you are not an Arab male, you will wait and wait and wait. Fortunately, the QU staff is very kind and they mean well.


salary, vacation days, benefits, professional development

Balance between working and Social Life

Qatar University is Semi Government Organization which can provide an above Government Salary Scale. In comparasion to private section, Qatar University provide good Salary with short working hours as any government organization. the problem with Qatar University they have very bad management skills which is why Qatar University never improved from radically during last 10 years I spent though they had very good budget.

Stimolante e flessibile. Si lavora insieme per dare il meglio.

Qatar University fino ad ora ha dimostrato di essere un luogo accogliente ed amichevole. Questa universita' ha un livello accademico eccelente poiche' estremamente organizzata. I datori di lavoro si preoccupano sia del benessere degli impiegati che degli studenti. Sono felice di formarne parte.


Ottimo alloggio, vacanze pagate, ottimo stipendio.


Dopo tanti anni trascorsi all'estero, avrei tanta voglia di tornare a lavorare in Italia.
