It’s good. About 20% better than what you’d get for similar roles in NYC + none of it is taxed.

PwC for sure

@Principal 1: Deeply

@Deloitte 1: They don’t seem to be budging 🤷‍♂️

Literally everyone

@pwc1: Are you with the firm in Dubai? If so, would you be open to a coffee meetup? I’m here.

Sorry OP, I'm ex-UAE now in the US. But lots of consultancies are hiring. You should scan LinkedIn for people aligned to your background and approach that way

Hey OP. I know EY digital is hiring in Dubai if you’re interested. Not too sure about Abu Dhabi though

EY1: I’m interested. 🤘

No tax on income there. 👌

Ex Dubai here. Get ready to spend most of your time in Saudi Arabia.

Hi, thanks all. Anyone on this thread open to putting me in touch w/ someone here??

Service line / offering, OP?

I’m no longer with Deloitte — haven’t been for 1.5 yrs now. (Was when I first subscribed to Fishbowl.) Fed S&O in DC.

Not a huge D s&o practice out there. There are smaller boutique firms that do fed strategy work out there that are always looking, try: Palladium Group, Caliber Consulting, Shiftin. You should see immediate interest when you send your CV over on LinkedIn.

What's the pay like

Why doesn't everyone work there

Yep — I can vouch

If money is number one priority, then I don’t know why you wouldn’t. I left for other reasons: you become unemployable elsewhere once you get too senior, most of the work is in Saudi Arabia, clients not interesting, despite ‘modern’ veneer it’s still a theocracy, etc

I've seen a couple of posts about bad reviews, and I feel this needs to be said:
The ability to do a job doesn't directly correlate to being a good fit for a given position. Job fit goes both ways. Maybe the expectations changed over time. Maybe you have things to work on personally. Or maybe the expectations are out of line.
A bad review doesn't mean you suck at your profession; it's an opportunity to be a better fit or to find a better fit. Top performers can get PIPs - I've seen it.
