The students at this school are delightful and make the job worthwhile. The financial package and additional benefits are superb and the local community a great place to be although for some, living on the West Coast can be a little isolating.

Dislikes

I have had little dealings with QP as a whole, the school is quite literally 'micro managed' - on first arriving staff were told that under no circumstances were they to contact any department other than school directly regarding issues or raise concerns.

I was offered what sounded like a fantastic opportunity at interview and effectively promised early promotion, on arriving this couldn't have been further from the truth - I have been utilised as a cover teacher and not taught my subject. My previous experience has not been put to use in any way and I have had no further opportunity to develop professionally.

Working hours are ridiculous and do not reflect contracts or other QP departments, despite being contracted until 14.30 staff are forced to remain until 16.00 two days a week (9.5 hour working day) favourably know within school as 'the teacher detention'. Many colleagues are in work late evening and beyond 21.00 completing endless directed tasks issued by SMT who are out the door much sooner. This school is an unhappy, toxic environment.

Work

The school environment is demanding, there is a lot of beurocracy and paper work, the curriculum is very narrow - I wouldn't be happy sending a child of mine here

Good salary, much better than most other companies in Qatar.
Good work-life balance as there is no work pressure!

Dislikes

1. Groupism very much prevalent among IT professionals
2. Expatriates get hardly any training opportunities for career advancement.
3. Salary appraisal is hopeless and unfair. Good workers get poor rating whereas those who do not work are given excellent rating because they follow "Yes Boss" philosophy and are part of the boss's group (could be language, country or previous company)
4. No career growth for expats. They join and retire mostly in the same position.
5. Sometimes you have to work under idiot bosses who probably reached that position because of their new western passport though their country of birth may be in Asia!

Work

Often boring. You don't want to leave just because of the good salary!

The company is very encouraging for staff training . Good people with good working environment and facilities. ready to work if given a second chance.

Dislikes

In 2015 terminated in thousands of their staff without prior information to the employees. And never allowed to join other organization although other companies were ready to offer a job. So there is no job security.

Work

Work was very interesting and was enjoying working there

Very nice working environment

Dislikes

Many Staffs were laid off and was not aware of their job loss until they got the letter in hand. And it was a surprise for the staff to get such letter without prior notice. It was very difficult to search for another job. Hoping that QP will give us a second chance to serve again.

Work

It was a privilege to work with QP.
