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 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.

A very demanding job but had great colleagues to work with

HCT was a wonderful place to work in, I have a great experience and learned a lot of skills from so many people. The most valuable thing in HCT was work with such a huge diversity of people and all of them were great colleagues that I will miss forever. The hardest part of the job: it was overwhelming with no flexibility.

Pros

fast paste with great learning experience and good pakage

Cons

long hours, very demanding

The work environment is fantastic and lot of learning opportunity as a staff

My day at work starts with meeting students, who have queries, parents, some student come only to say hello. The work place culture is broad mind, yet still holding on to the roots of emirate culture and that is so wonderful. The difficult part of work is when you have to things or have to change the plan at the last moment, but we still do it happily. Learning happens every moment and with each experience of the day. Each day is so blissful.

A day at work

The HCT has a history of people from all over the globe working together and it is always a thrill to work for the HCT. Boss(es) come from the West mostly and it is easy to interact with them. Learned so much on how to be on my toes with the expanded spectrum of work and professional development. Job security being the prime issue, stress is common and the survival comes to nearly impossible :) The most enjoyable part is that LIFE is smooth and comparatively, we find us placed the best in the market.

Fast paced and very dedicated towards the aim of providing the best of education

There hasn't been a day passed, where I haven't given my best to this company. The standards here just brings out the best in you. My skills and knowledge are on a complete different level from where I have joined the company. The leadership here, makes sure that the employees are well crafted to their deliverables. It makes you want to work harder and long hours without hesitation. There is a feel of electricity the moment I step in the campus in the morning. The drive is a true roller coaster.
