      Cons

      Alot of discrimination, and you will not be promoted/good evaluated if you don't know any one. if you are technician or 3-10 grade employee, you will get the whole work and will not get the same compensation as 11+ employee.

      Pros

      Benefits and salary are good

      Cons

      Benefits and salary are good for a reason. You will be disrespected continuously in the work environment as a expat. They are not interested in your experience or background, knowledge or skills. They are looking for "workers" who do what told to get the work done since the locals cannot and will not. Don't expect to be treated fairly or equally. Don't expect integrity and accountability for locals. Credit for your work...
