Definitely.

I'm on my FOURTH tour of duty here, having arrived about ten days ago.

Lifestyle - of course Dubai or Bahrain is much more alluring, but work-wise it's no contest. Give me a good Saudi over a good Emirati, Kuwaiti, etc, etc, any day of the week.

Married? If so, are you planning to bring your wife with you?

If so you will have female company.

If you DON'T bring your wife with you, you will have even more female company........

Yes...wife and 2 children...everyone seems to dislike it that i have spoken to, telling me it is like working in hell!
We would be in the Seder compound.
Need to tell them tomorrow whether i want the job or not.

Has Saudi got progressively worse over the years? My aunt and her husband spent 14 years there and loved it.

Yea......... from 2001 to 2003 I lived in Najd Compound, with all the Marconi boys who were doing the comms stuff for the military.

And all the Czech nurses, who worked at the Kingdom Hospital.........

Marie? Anna? Where are you when I need you?

We had a system of fines and forfeits on Najd, if compound rules were broken.

Rule No 1 was:

"You MUST NOT obstruct the view of another male resident when Anna is applying her sun tan lotion." The penalties for transgressors were severe......

I lived in Hamburg on two separate occasions and also in Bremen! So I was an Inselaffen to my colleagues!
