Management wise, I feel like there could be more improvement in overall department. I like how collaborative and helpful people are. Downside is, they do not hire for full time employees. The department I worked with is always seeking new ways to stay a step ahead and is open to feedback and ideas. Fun – the organization creates opportunities for fun in daily work.
Timings of work
No room for promotion
A good place to work if you can manage to become an insider since there is too much grouping and some times internal hirings are done so people might feel discriminated at some point.
A student majoring Psychology and Human Services. I studied there for 6 years. the first two years are foundation and general studies. Then, I toke the major for 4 years.
gain lots of skills and built up my personality
some strugglers in doing schedule for the semester
as an intern I got to experience many new ways of running an industry. I was in charge of minor things like maintaining dates on the event planners, printing posters and other busy work. this job taught me modesty. I believe everyone has to start at the bottom and this was a very fun atmosphere to get that experience. the staff were very kind and were sure to make use of a young interns help such as myself.
Outstanding salary and benefits, and great colleagues. However, the administration is moving the wrong direction as far as educational excellence. The emphasis is on compliance with arbitrary rules and procedures that harm the teaching and learning environment. Teachers have no freedom design instruction that address learning needs.
classrooms overlaoded with students who barely speak English.

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
It was one of my best experiences in life working there as an Internship Assistant was really interesting and it was the first job I had in my life , I was a studying there at the same time and the working environment I had was so joyful with lots of activities on and outside the campus, were we had met the most VIPs and powerful people in the UAE.
A Great place for work life balance. Have flexible timings to choose from. Comp offs are provided if worked over weekends or nights. There are many campus activities like gym, lawn tennis, batminton coures, swimming pool etc. The management has been focusing on making the university into more researches in diverse fields.
Unfortunately since 2012 or so the university has crumbled. The managers have no clue what they are doing and run their departments by threatening to fire everyone (which means visa cancellation, have to leave the country etc...). The salaries have not kept up with the inflation and the addition of the VAT tax, and now housing is a cash allotment which is not adequate, especially for those with families. The country is amazing, the university is horrid...look elsewhere.
Nice buildings, students are nice, country is safe.
Salaries insufficient, leadership has no idea how to run a university, nepotism is rampant
Everyone is in fear of being fired. Faculty/staff spend the majority of their time trying to figure out who to suck up to and how instead of actually doing their jobs. Management relies on fear mongering and bullying to manage. Leaders are non existent. Compensation has not kept up with the cost of living increases in the UAE, and now housing benefits have been slashed as well. Work environment is horrible, nobody should consider ZU unless you are absolutely desperate for a job.
The work environment is very soothing. Spacious work place, supportive and fun-loving collegues, attractive payment and less stressfull work. Working with faculty and students is a different experience.
Many events, free food
No value for performance
It is very productive to cooperate with the University colleagues such as fun areas from sports day, to hang up dinners, trips and even other recreational corners.
free lunches, transport, housing, funiture, ticketing
conferences, lectures extended hours
