I do think you should negotiate for more.
I just received a similar offer and I have 7 years of experience.

Default Compensation Package

I don't have an offer yet but I do want to gain a better understanding of the compensation packages here for the negotiation phase. From my preliminary discussions with the prospective company, a few of the benefits/allowances that are included in the package are health insurance, housing allowance, company car and a flex benefit (fixed amount) to go towards education. Here are my questions:

1. Are the allowances typically paid out in cash or only paid as used, directly to the company, school, landlord, etc? So, if there are unused funds, does the company keep it?

2. If I don't need these allowances/benefits because they are already being covered by my spouse's company, at my request, will the company typically waive the allowances but add the cash value to my base salary?

Any insight into how this works is appreciated!

Default Expat definition and housing

Quick question--I am looking at a position with a UK firm in Dubai and I am a US citizen. This is a permanent move. Is that still considered expat?

Also, I have a salary estimate but am wondering if housing allowances are mandated by law or a nice perk offered if the employer chooses?

Brief answer from my phone. Expat as such doesn’t really mean anything ..... what matters is what’s in your contract .... ie the length and what’s written in it, whether you are locally employed or posted here etc ... housing ...is not mandated it can be included in the total figure or as an additional allowance likewise education and transport and other allowances will depend on your company and role. If you are locally employed then medical insurance has to be provided as will usually flights home. Whether that is just you or your family depends on your terms.

If you have a search this is all covered in many threads.

Hope that helps.
