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

    Pros

    They take care of everything. Salaries are very competitive, they are probably the highest in the region. International work and living environement. Calm campus and a very good place to live with families.

    Cons

    Less freedom, you have to share housing if you are single. Everything under control. A huge gap between people in the same community. Since they are from different places in the world, cultures are very different, and thus, there is less interactions with others. they don't think in the same way. Lack of social activities. Most people feel anxious some times.
