We did. But for those staffed on projects outside the UAE, it's tricky. Case by case and project by project. You can make it work if you have a big enough team and you organize among your team to allow for people to take Sat-Sun weekends

Indeed. I would rather stay with Fri-Sat weekends. This way you end up getting a messy weekend.

Just had a negotiation end. I am proud of myself though, for valuing my skills. I had a company offer me less money than I’m currently making….and while the role would’ve been great, we are in an era of high inflation and gas prices. I also would’ve been leaving a totally remote role to go to a hybrid role, so I had to factor gas prices in as well. Moral of the story, value yourself and your skills!! And stand your ground even if it’s a very well known company.
