    Qatar Airways? Deerfoot Recruitment or Direct? Have they resolved their diplomatic crisis with neighbouring countries?

    Got to agree rate sounds amazing until you get out there and cost for everything gets out of control. Not forgetting 0% job security. You could be out there for two days and forked out 1 year rent with other stuff and have your contract canned 2 days later or 1 week or 1 month. It's the little details (package) that is key and not just money.

    you are wise cosmic, I think I shall call you cosmic the wise, since i have spent the last year or so, as Lean/engagememt/product with amongst others in the sandpit, QATAR/ ME - Gulf states as ahem........fixer........ Product consultant with well shall we say, f***king random customers, training issues, competence, simple integrity, ignoring basic advice designed to get them over the competency curve, raising safety issues multiple times on same issue, cry wolf, what fous de fous, and they simply don't want to listen......serious culture issue, waste of time, would not touch it with a barge pole, if I did, it would be 1K+ Day all expenses paid, flights, booze, roller skater girls when I get back to my apartment, a clown to follow me around and cheer me up, invoice weekly, and no negotiation on anything ...... ever.............actually they need to pay upfront , there , now I feel better

    so normal client then tbh
