Pros: free food, accommodation, laundry & house keeping
Cons: long working hours, very distant site location.
One good thing about Hill International is the legal proficiency side of the firm. All of the legitimate prerogatives & benefits, duly mandated by the UAE Law, for its employee are being given accordingly.
I have no problem dealing and working with my immediate supervisors and seniors however, having a Site located in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi is quite strategically odd for me since most of my closest relatives and friends are staying in Abu Dhabi City. Somehow, the distance and separation that I'm experiencing which limit myself from having a social life, (from the way I used to have before), is one of the most difficult bargain that I traded when I took my current job. In addition, although we are paid for the mandatory overtime time that the Client required to us everyday, the long duty hour is really tedious to accomplish on a day to day basis.
