Banking in UAE

Hey, I haven't posted in a while but I need some advice.

I have an interview coming up with a bank (think Citi, Barclays, BNP, HSBC or similar) for an Investment Banking Off-Cycle role - I assume with chances of securing a full time role - with them at their Dubai offices, and I wanted to know if any of you have any experience either interiewing or working over there.

Any comments or tips regarding sectors, cultural differences or working environment would be helpful!

Thanks!

I speak 7 languages -- never attempted to write the full name of a country like the UAE out... and when I did, I did it right so as not to impress upon anyone that I am clueless.
