    Consider treating expats with long service records (over 8-10 years) like locals after all they have contributed their best and most productive years at ADCO.

    Pros

    Good technical development and learning opportunities

    Bad to worse career growth. No managerial path, only technical path for expats. Also the technical career growth is sometimes very slow

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foreign trainings should be allowed. Business approvals and phases should be done at more faster pace than it is at current
