    I have been working at ADCO full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

    No 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 ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should review employees' concerns.

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

    I have been working at ADCO full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

    no 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 ManagementAdvice

    treat 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.

    I have been working at ADCO full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at ADCO

    Pros

    Top 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.

    Cons

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