What are the pros and cons of living in Qatar?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Qatar responded:

"Quite an easy experience as an expat, though the climate in summer is unbelievably hot," said another expat in Doha.

"I like the weather. I like the safe environment I like the tax free system. I like the health care. I don't like the dust I don't like the traffic I don't like the religious restrictions I don't like the landscape/scenery," remarked another expat in Doha.
