The visa ypu probably got was an entry permit for work purposes. This is different from the visa that will be stamped in your passport. Once you enter on the visa they have given you then you should have an offer letter, reflecting the terms you agreed to. While companies usually get the offer letter squared away early it is not unusual for them to get it done when the candidate is 'in country'. The fact that they have issued the entry visa to you is a promising sign.

To be sure about the visa, look at the header, the words 'entry permit -work' will clearly be written in uppercase and block letters ...

Is it a tourist visa or as Saraswat pointed out, an entry permit for work?
If its a tourist visa, do push to get the contract signed before you land there.

The designation on the tourist/visit visa does not mean anything. It has nothing to do with your employment. the tourist visa just allows you to enter the UAE. The employment visa process will start once you enter the UAE.

While you are on the tourist visa and have your passport with you, yes you can immediately come back.
