Living in Jeddah

Hi all!
I may be moving to Jeddah, and would like to get feedback on how it is living there. If you would be so kind as to give me feedback about the following:
-Security of compounds, how do I know how secure it is before I get there?
-Holding of passports by sponsor-has anyone had an issue with this?
-Exit visas-Do you need this for a holiday, even if you are returning to Jeddah?
-Overall security, especially for Westerners?
-If there is a labor dispute and you are not permitted to leave, what do you do then?
Thank you for your assistance!
