Nice place to get your feet wet.

Not challenging enough to continue working. Lots of changes in short time, and not exposed to management. Easy going work atmosphere. The female students are motivated and hard working.

Great Place to work

Great place to work and specially with a wonderful colleagues with a great understanding boss. I always look forward to the next day to learn something new. After my boss decided to leave because he can't protect his own employees anymore, I got the feeling that I don't have any job security anymore....

Pros

understand boss

Cons

not much free time

Oppressive and frustrating workplace in recent years

In recent years the organization deteriorated. Awful autocratic management by unqualified people who d0 not have experience in education and certainly have no idea how to motivate people. Continuous changes of policies. Culture of punishment and threats. Very frustrating. Co workers were excellent and salary was excellent but the environment was toxic.

Pros

Co workers, salary, some lovely students

Cons

Upper management

Stay away, HCT has been going downhill for years but since Emaritisation of the management, very bad has got even worse

To sum up how they operate, in 2012, I was given a 2.5 year extension to my contract one day and a 6 month termination letter the next day. My college director and HR officer knew nothing about it. Things have got much worse since. HCT has lurched from being an excellent vocational training organisation to a very poor "university" and now it doesn't know what it is!

Pros

Most of the faculty in my college

Cons

Senior Management. Was always bad but with Emiratisation is now worse beyond belief.

Work Experiences

It is a five-day job, managing future leaders of the country to become successful business professionals. Having an individual to graduate and become an asset to the society is both an honor and a privilege. We all learn from colleagues and the students from content to personal advancement. Managerial skills are well utilized like planning, organizing limited resources, leading, directing and controlling to achieve the maximum potential of our output. Co-workers are composed of professionals from various fields and nationalities, hence, developing the inter-cultural and inter-personal skills.

Pros

Housing benefits

Cons

Long hours

Down the drain

HCT used to be a decent place to work, but since the appointment of new management the institution has declined rapidly. Absolutely no one trusts upper management any longer. Morale is extremely low and for good reason: forced overtime, increase in teaching hours, changing grades without consulting faculty, CCTV cameras all across campus, biometric tracking of faculty, the counting of work hours, and the requirement for attestation of even secondary school transcripts from faculty with multiple Masters and PhDs. Well functioning staff were replaced by locals who quickly decamped, leaving many important posts, such as HR officer, empty. Communication from management is typically through grammatically challenged email messages that have to be clarified by follow-up emails. Threats and bullying have become the norm. In retaliation for more than 80% of faculty failing to have their credentials properly attested and equalized, a process over which faculty have little control, management has not renewed the contracts of somewhere near 300 faculty without cause or explanation. Management is now desperately attempting to recruit replacement faculty at reduced rates. If you are one to whom they have spoken, be very careful.

Pros

Salary paid on time; professional colleagues

Cons

Everything else.
