Funny old thing, when I joined IAL (now SERCO) in 1977 at the age of 24 and worked in the Middle East we enjoyed the same working conditions as you claim you have today in 2017-18;
o No pay increments
o No yearly bonuses
o No leave for an average 9 months and then NOT when you request it but when the SATCO allowed it.
But it was great fun and we never had;
o Stress (sorry what is this word?)
o Sleepless nights (except when we were partying or the baby woke up)
o Bullying (from the SATCO? Never - they were all one of the lads)
o Intimidation (maybe from the Indian ATC Assistants who wanted to sit in your chair and do the job for you!)
o Living nightmare (come on guys; why you are there?)

As they say: plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose (“the more it changes, the more it's the same thing”).

Amen to that. I was in Oman at the same time and can draw many parallels with what you say. Particularly the SATCO, he certainly was one of the boys. Supported his staff, fought their corner, brought calm and reason to attempts by the ATCOs' employer to react to demands by the DGCA to fire someone before reading an incident report, which often exonerated the ATCO. More than one ATCO's job was saved by his efforts.

Despite having set up the Muscat FIR and ACC (which the DGCA received all the credit) and set up an en-route charges system which made the government over $1million per month (which in the early 80s was very serious money) he got shafted because he knew too much about the DGCA Directors' social habits/lives during the many official trips that he was required to accompany them on. Probably still happens today?

The term "stress" also did not appear in our dictionary, neither did "prima donna"!

Don’t! Not at the moment. Many have already left, a large percentage of those remaining are working hard on exit plans. Ask yourself why?

Thank me later......

Shifts seem to be 6 on / 4 off, MM-LL-NN, 5-6hrs in the position per day.
do you have an idea about the salary ? Thks

Yes, housing allowance is part of the 52000/month. Again, according to which contract you have, you receive the équivalent of a business flight ticket per year/adult (max 2). (+/- 15000uad x2).

Hi Atcboss, thanks for the info. Is there a pension system or allowance on top of that salary? Thanks

No pension system or allowance at all. On the other hand you will have a 1000 aed salary increase per year and a yearly bonus according your personal and company result ( +/- 30000 aed/year).
