I have been offered a job in the UAE. I am in the process of negotiating a salary. Is there anyone on the list that can give me a general range of what I should be asking for? I have 17 years of experience in structrual design and construction management.

If anyone knows of openings at other firms in the UAE or other Gulf companies, I'd like to explore other options before committing to this offer.

That's an interesting question. All the myriad job scams for piping engineers list salaries in the $20-30 grand range, which probably sounds pretty good east of Suez. I know of people who made a lot more, but it was considered hardship duty because of a lot of social strictures. I'm assuming this isn't one of those arrangements where you pay a fee up front--don't go near them.
