Wondering if anyone can give me a behind the scene look at KAUST. Interviewing for a nice-level staff position. Family with teenagers as well. I have seen mixed thoughts about KAUST on various posts however many are outdated.
Basic questions: - are the living conditions nice (as solicited) - things to do? - obviously a small community, but my family is active and this would be a huge change for them. - how easy is it to travel? - safety; possibly the #1 question - Does KAUST look out for its employees? - how to compare expenses to what i am used to in US - i believe taxes are handled differently and to the expat's advantage? - have modern conveniences made their way to this location
If we go, i am looking for a family adventure and a huge opportunity to save $, etc. Anything anyone can share is most helpful!
