Any insights on ALG consulting? I received an offer much lower than my salary in the US, but I really want to work in Dubai so I’m considering it. What amount would you say is needed to live comfortably? Also, do most negotiate their offers in Dubai? Any specific things I should ask for or ensure the offer includes? Thank you!

What level at ALG? Director?
Depends on what’s included in your offer and what are benefits?
You should ask for housing and travel allowance, medical and dental at the minimum.

Thank you! That’s what I thought.

This salary is about the lowest level at K for someone with 0 years of experience. Besides the benchmark element, 30k is quite low for Dubai, depending of course on the lifestyle you want to have. Without kids, you would expect to spend ~10-12k/mo for a decent 2b apartment in a good neighborhood (Business Bay, Downtown, Marina, etc) and another 5-10k in other recurrent expenses.

But I'm scared to decline Amazon without a guaranteed job offer.

Just received my offer from Uber. Is it normal for recruiters to play hard ball when it comes to comp? I feel like what I was offered for the role was low, and he made it seem like it was non negotiable. (They don’t decide this, do they?) I’m afraid if I counter they will go for someone else but I’m just not happy with it overall.

Initial offer: Account Exec, base 45k. No sign on bonus.

Hello Fishes,

I'm currently serving my notice period. LWD is on 06-Sep. My manager said that he will try for an onsite opportunity with other projects like the UK or europe as he doesn't have any onsite (US) opening in the current project. Yesterday he said he found a UK project having an onsite opportunity and said that the respective manager will contact.

I'm holding an offer for 26LPA with 8.5 YOE with product based company.

I really confused to make a decision. Pls help
