    I have been working at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Housing and services included. You don't need to spend a minute "paying bills". Commuting ~5min. Overall more time for research/personal development. Great international environment on the academic campus. Many sports activities can be done here. Usually great support for attending conferences (very valuable for networking). Research facilities are top-class.

    Nothing to complain. It is worth the adventure.
