I've decided not to go to Dubai for a year. The main reason is because my job with the company is not guareenteed when I come back. I can't afford to be without a job for another 3 years. Sure I will be making major bucks if I went to Dubai, but that wouldn't support us if I couldn't find a job for awhile.
If they ever tell me that my job will be waiting when I return....my ass will be on the next flight out!
