The money here is good if you can stomach the inept and chronically inefficient management structure. They have brought unskilled managers in from Texas who just got their passports at age 50, who have no Middle East experience, and who have earned their PhDs from dubious online institutions.

Any class act teacher should avoid this sure to fail project. And, that is their biggest worry. They don't want anyone to give the Qataris the heads up.

They also have a nasty habit of paying people unfairly. Some people make an entire salary and teach no classes, while others work nearly double the amount contracted for and get no more money than someone working one extra hour under some policy called "equated." Being abroad lets them think they can get away with this.

And they also pay you up to $30,000 less than the SEC pays them for your abilities and skills. They defend this by saying Houston gives you benefits, but if you were in Houston you would still be getting those same benefits and not have someone earning off your back.
