I’ve been thinking about moving to dubai for the money, but been hearing these stories about overwork so much..

What’s your level? I am also considering Middle East (Abu Dhabi actually) but as a manager/senior manager which, I was hoping, would come with a bit more flexibility and a better work life balance

I am a consultant. Manager's and senior con's condition is even worse. They are involved in creating, reviewing, business development and pitching round the clock. Partners live in denial that the team is heavily underataffed. Keep bringing in more projects and have no intention of alleviating the workload on existing staff. This combined with attrition is taking a toll on all of us

Depends on the team you are a part of. I moved from Dubai to the US and have had the reverse experience - modern slavery here versus better quality of life and WLB in dubai.
