    My experience at ADCO has been good so far

    Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsWork life balance , good training and opportunity to work with lots of experienced professionals

    ConsNo clear cut career path, disparity in salaries between new employees and old employees. Female employees lose some key benefits when they get married. No yearly increase in salaries.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management should review employees' concerns.

    It has potential for being much better

    Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
    Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates)

    Proshours, life/work balance, stable (as long as emiratization is not fully implemented), gym, pool, restaurant

    Consno yearly salary increase, discrimination between expats/locals, women do not get same benefits as men if they are not head of families, bad appraisal system, no motivation to work if you are not friends with the boss

    Advice to Senior Managementtreat expats/locals the same, give women same benefits as men even if not head of families, change the appraisal system (the PCR is not fair), please increase salary every year, 5 years and no salary increase is not fair.

    Great when you are young with big family, not attractive for experienced older employee

    Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
    Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates)

    ProsSituated in excellent country, good for those who have family with smaller children

    ConsNo salary increase, limited career for expat, No (or extremely low) field allowance for office based employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn from other big companies how to handle company and their employee, ADCO has unused potential to be the best employer, just need willingness.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good company, alot of people not doing wasting resource while other doing their work. Promotion given to locals

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsTop exec team, UAE CEO one of the best in the world. ADCO has the potential to be the best but some of its people stop that.

    ConsSome of the workforce, expat control of departments and UAE managers.
