    I worked at Mubadala full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Interesting work at the senior level; very active across many industry groups; pay and benefits as an expat are excellent; not very stressful compared to similar firms in NY or London

    Cons

    Quality level and professionalism of investment professionals can be spotty depending on the group / function. Work culture in Abu Dhabi is very different that in USA/Europe. Most of the junior staff are locals and quality / work ethic vary widely!
