The day starts with the review of systems status and coordinates with school IT staff and helps them if required. Workplace culture is very supportive. The most enjoyable part of the job is the opportunity to experiment with the innovative ideas you have.

working in Gems is an opportunity to learn new skills and strategies, Being an art teacher I have learned a lot during the PLD sessions at Gems. I get many opportunities to enroll my students for competitions and they won many prizes and make myself and school feel proud due to their art skills under my supervision. Working environment is supportive and collaborative .

GEMS is very spectral in what it offers. At the high end, they are excellent and at the low end it is very clear what is on offer. In the middle, I experienced poor and uncertain leadership and a lack of passion for the children's progress in favour of procedures and a corporate environment that is focussed on economy of cost. Staff were generally poorly led and poorly deployed in terms of experienced.

An organised working day with lots of responsibilities as I used to have a team meeting twice a week, to discuss about what has been achieved and whats coming up, we have a discussion about assessments and what the way to put them , members of staff to share their good practice, upcoming activities and celebrations in school, etc.
I have learnt the following:

1- How to be well organised as I used to keep all my documents in separate folders .

2-How to prepare a good curriculum according to UAE national agenda.

3- How to be a good leader , spreading positive vibes amongst the whole team. etc.....

A positive and a fair managemen

An interacting workplace culture with the UAE culture.

The hardest part was being responsible for a big team.

The most enjoyable part is learning a lot from that job.

I have been working at gems education full-time (More than a year)

Funny, helpful coworkers. Everyone cares about doing a good job with clear goals in mind. Supportive atmosphere. Laid back office culture. Free coffee. I really feel like I am needed and appreciated here.


The typical with many companies: much work to be done but that is what I signed up for. Coding standards could be improved.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work of appreciating hard work. Meetings are helpful and the managers are doing a good job of making sure people are learning what they need to.

The working atmosphere in GEMS is always good. Provided that the culture differs with different schools, you work with. Also with the corporate office.

Previously, it was fun to come to and I personally looked forward to it, but of late, it has become too top heavy with the CO personnel making life difficult for schools by just adding to the work load with a lot of stufff that is duplicated and not required. I learnt a lot and continue to learn, perhaps the best part of the organisation. The Chairman and his family are really good, but misled by many and what they get to see and hear is often distorted and blurred and not the true picture.
Pros
Good Packages
Cons
Long hours, too much dulpication, too top heavy, lots of stress, too many changes
