    I have been working at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The compound is fantastic for raising young children below 10 years old and especially for 0-5 years old. I would recommend for these families in a heartbeat. You turn expensive years into money saving years but simulateously add quality to your life by eliminating commute and tasks such as cleaning, gardening .... I easily spent 3 hours a day playing with my children (<1 and 2 years old), had a decent job and saved decent money.

    Cons

    There is a bit of a negative attitude on the compound, some warranted by the institution some unjustified. Related to this, there is a true dichotomy of KAUST citizens those who love and those who hate it. This is not a great place for young couples not planning on having children and a terrible place for singles. Institution is not really conducive to long term -non academic- employment. If you are a researcher perhaps this is a different story.
