A good place to work if you can manage to become an insider since there is too much grouping and some times internal hirings are done so people might feel discriminated at some point.

as an intern I got to experience many new ways of running an industry. I was in charge of minor things like maintaining dates on the event planners, printing posters and other busy work. this job taught me modesty. I believe everyone has to start at the bottom and this was a very fun atmosphere to get that experience. the staff were very kind and were sure to make use of a young interns help such as myself.

Outstanding salary and benefits, and great colleagues. However, the administration is moving the wrong direction as far as educational excellence. The emphasis is on compliance with arbitrary rules and procedures that harm the teaching and learning environment. Teachers have no freedom design instruction that address learning needs.
Pros
monetary benefits
Cons
classrooms overlaoded with students who barely speak English.

The Academic Bridge Program where I've worked several years is being discontinued. There is really no telling what kind of job new hires to the newly inaugurated CELL program, starting Fall 2019, will have.

Unfortunately since 2012 or so the university has crumbled. The managers have no clue what they are doing and run their departments by threatening to fire everyone (which means visa cancellation, have to leave the country etc...). The salaries have not kept up with the inflation and the addition of the VAT tax, and now housing is a cash allotment which is not adequate, especially for those with families. The country is amazing, the university is horrid...look elsewhere.
Pros
Nice buildings, students are nice, country is safe.
Cons
Salaries insufficient, leadership has no idea how to run a university, nepotism is rampant

Everyone is in fear of being fired. Faculty/staff spend the majority of their time trying to figure out who to suck up to and how instead of actually doing their jobs. Management relies on fear mongering and bullying to manage. Leaders are non existent. Compensation has not kept up with the cost of living increases in the UAE, and now housing benefits have been slashed as well. Work environment is horrible, nobody should consider ZU unless you are absolutely desperate for a job.
