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

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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

Today, it is not what it used to be.

In the 9 years I worked there, we received a poor 2% salary increase, once only.8 years went by with no increases. With continued increases of cost of living, and the Value Added Tax, started in 2018, it is not worth it.Management changed from American/Canadian/British to local. The system is intense and no respect for individuals. They can change conditions and benefits any time they want.They cut the benefits drastically. That includes housing allowance, kids schooling, travel, and even health.Simply put, if I have a chance to go back, I will not.

Pros

Good for singles. If you are an individual without a family, you can manage.

Cons

If you have a family with kids, this is not for you.

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.

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.

Not good these days.

It used to be the best place to work in the UAE, but has sadly gone down hill in the last few years. An American culture run by unqualified people now prevails the whole sector. The local managers, and students, were great and very helpful in nearly everything asked for etc. But over the years there has been a steady decrease in all areas of education. Hopefully, this will be rectified at some point in the near future.

Productive and fun

Overall, it has been a very positive learning and productive experience. The workplace culture is always changing. Sometimes, this is positive and other times it can be negative. Your immediate boss makes a huge difference. The part I enjoy the most about the job is the students.
