    Negative Outlook

    I worked at American University of Sharjah full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    With the housing provided and utilities covered, your salary is likely to exceed what one would earn in Europe or the US. No commute

    Cons

    This university is in crisis. Of the 350 faculty members, more than 50 have left this year. Everyone who has options is looking for jobs elsewhere. Anyone who knows academia, knows that losing 15% of faculty in a year is a huge vote of no confidence. --While one supposedly has job security here, the truth is that they will fire anyone who opposes the direction the chancellor has chosen. Given that he does not know... how to run a university, this is very distressing. —The University does not know how to actually support research.

    Advice to Management

    Fire everyone in the senior administration and start again. The entire university is being run into the ground by administrators with no scruples.
