PLEASE HELP ME (Offer from QF)
In two days from now I'll be receiving an offer from Qatar Foundation for a position with grade 16 and have several questions in mind for which I would like to receive your feedback.
First of all, do you know what is the salary range in QF for a position with grade 16? I know they will provide me house, annual leave tickets, education for mi children, car allowance + other stuff. But, knowing this would allow me to know if they are underestimating me or not :)...
Second, can I negotiate my salary in Qatar? Especially, if I already received an offer from a big company with a very good international reputation. Thus, do you think I can negotiate my salary?
Third, I would like to know how good QF is as employer. Is it a serious company? how does QF treat its employees?
Fourth, I heard to say that some companies take even the passport of their employees. Is it this normal? Does QF do that?
Fifth, do you think that working for QF is good for CV, considering that I would like to move back to Europe after some years?
Sixth, I have a family (wife + 2 children) and am really afraid of making a mistake in moving to Doha because I do not know how life is over there. Is Doha family friendly? How good schools are (especially french ones)? Are there activities for Kids in Doha?
I know that I am asking you many questions, but really, I am feeling alone in the world to take this hard decision of moving or not to Qatar. It would be then GREAT if you can help me with your comments.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO ALL OF YOU!
