Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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.

Disconnected management

Management have little awareness of the reality of day to day experiences for teaching faculty. The Organization is run “top down” and educational changes are imposed without explanation and more critically, without consultation and open discussion. This results in a generally alienated teaching faculty who just go with the flow. A large majority of the student body have misguided expectations of the effort required to achieve good academic grades.

Best place to gain diverse experience and meet challenges

Given the dynamic, multi-campus, multicultural, I was able to gain vast experience working with this institution. We could interact system-wide with people from different countries and all walks of life. The institution has campuses across the whole of the UAE giving the staff the opportunity to travel to the various campuses all over the country. Given the dynamic nature of the institution, I could gain experience in facing challenges and adapting to changes. I enjoyed my tenure at this institution. I can say it is one of the best places to work in the U.A.E.

Pros

Multicultural and dynamic

Cons

Not many

Good place to work

Good students who are keen to learn depending on the teacher's motivation. Students require a forceful teacher who make them work. Students can take advantage of any weaknesses in the system.

Pros

Good culture

Cons

Too much administrative work

A once great institution which has fallen into terminal decline

Recent structural changes have led to an atmosphere of management by fear. This was once the best place to work in the EFL world. The package was outstanding. Over the years this has gradually slipped and there appears to be little to attract someone who is serious about a career in education.

Pros

None

Cons

Micro-management

Pros

very good salary and a lot of free time

Cons

Too many meetings
