Nepotistic and Profit Driven

Ensure that your line manager is forward thinking. If working relationship is underpinned by trust and no micromanagement, wow...great work environment. Once you lose that, run! Employees and internal and external stakeholders are not valued, bottom line is! Memo sent to staff sometime last year stating that salary payments are rewards to staff. No joke!

Pros

Good work environment IF working for a good boss

Cons

Nepotistic. Reactive rather than proactive. Low salaries. Long work hours

Good productice environment.

Professional atmosphere, standard operating procedures followed. Work system is very standardised & it gives individual an opportunity tj learn & absorb. It really makes your foundation. It is very difficult to work in other schools after working in GEMS EDUCATION.

Pros

Depends from school to school.

Cons

Stressfull most time to meet deadlines, work keeps coming one after the other. We should be given sufficient time to complete assignments.

Extremely bad place to work if you are not a Senior Manager

They generally recruit through job agencies. You have to work on weekends. Work from home means they can call you at 11:30 at night and ask you to complete a work. They will not care if you are ill or sick. They are paying so they expect you to work all 7 days a week.Worst management I have ever seen.The Manager will never know the scope of work and timelines required to actually complete a task. They will give you a unachievable timeline and actually expect it from you.Never ever join GEMS Education on a short or mid term contract basis.

Cons

No work-life balance, worst management, work from home means you work 7 days a week, 30 or 31 days a month.

Relaxed workplace with enough holidays

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.

Productive and a learning platform

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 .

Be very clear as to what you are going into

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.

Political

Political and lacking leadership in the corporate office. The school staff are very good but back up from many aspects of the Corporate Office is lacking.

Cheap place

Very frustrating place, they do care about the money the most. High turn over rate , the last few months 5 employees have resigned. Worst way of communication.

Productive and energetic work place , with creative potential

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.
