    I worked at Eastern Mediterranean University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary is mostly paid on time and academics enjoy 13-month salary. If you are a full time academic and can play the local politics you will be fine.

    Cons

    The University lacks highly talented research faculty. Most of the faculty members are locals that are promoted to high academic ranks (Asst, Assoc and full professors) without academic or research qualifications.

    - All graduates of the university, even the best brains are not retained but chased off since almost all the locals hate SUCCESS.

    -The University DONT employ foreigners and will only employ unsucceful foreigners in the worst case.

    - Lots of unqualified staffs members that could not even write an abstract are promoted to Professor and Associate professorship.

    -The university is more of teaching and very low in research since they do not invest on equipments and talents.

    - Lots of old faculties are beign recycled even after they re 80 years old.

    - The university is designed only for undergraduate or maximum, A Master Degree but NOT PhD degree. Most Phd students self-supervised themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on recruiting highly talented foreigners, retain your best graduates and invest heavily on research equipments.
