As expat you know you could leave at any time. Very little job security, overworked academic staff and entitled students

Overworked academic staff and entitled students who hardly ever accept an assessment result. Hierarchical management, little participation, highly politicised work environment.

Stable job, interesting work

It is very satisfying to assist young adult Emirati students develop career-ready skills.The facilities are well equipped and there are plentiful teaching resources.High level management has moved towards emphasizing raising the HCT’s academic ranking by seeking PhD level instructors regardless of teaching ability.The management style is autocratic and the country itself is an autocracy where dissent is not tolerated.Employment there can be financially rewarding although opportunities for advancement are limited.

Pros

Subsidized housing, health, annual air tickets

Cons

Emphasis on advanced degrees over effective teaching skills

Worst environment ever

Not recommended at all. The worst environment you can ever work. No proper management, no proper decision makers, no proper team players, no proper strategy and no proper salaries.

Share your experience to help others

Good pay and holiday. Cutbacks have been happening in all departments for some time.

This is a great place to come and get international experience. It also pays very well with awesome holiday breaks. Change occurs at the top level every semester along with cut backs at the bottom level every semester. Do not expect to work here a long time but do come in thinking you will make some money, get some experience, and teach in a blended format.

Stressed and no collaboration

No one will give you any proper orientation and there is no backup, they do not look to athletes scholarship and not motivation. You can not find trust

This place is not a university

The management has no interest in being successful as a faculty member.they care about baby sitting the student only. They don’t care the type of eduction that the students get as long as we take attendance to keep the student s off the street

Hct and the uae are the best place to work and live

In the beginning, it was a challenging job because of multiple campuses and remote work culture. However, with the best mode of technologies, soon it became very easy to take over all the assigned tasks and it was always rewarding when you get fair appreciation and bonus based on your performance.

Pros

Flexible work hours

Cons

None

Relaxed and happy place

Higher colleges of Technology is a big establishment. That means it can be hectic at times and each process might take longer sometimes. However, life in Abu Dhabi is quite expensive.

Productive and Self Motivating

HCT is a good training institution where you can enhance your skills and potential. Develop yourself in the process and learn to communicate/coordinate and blend with the different level of people and working culture.

High workload - too many deadlines, too many types of work to be done. Good work environment - good salary, great colleagues and easy going students. Frequent changes.

An institution in transition

I had the opportunity to work with the HCT for three years and generally enjoyed my time there. Students were very hardworking and respectful, and the colleagues were excellent and very supportive. Admin was pressed to implement many structural changes and there were a lot of top-down decisions made for the 17 campuses with little to no consultation with faculty or students.

Excellent work cutlure

I learned how to be an better organized individual, who can multitask and delivery better lessons using technology. It has given me a chance to meet some really great students and to really cater my lesson to a specific level.
