    Pros

    In ADCO, you will feel at home with your colleagues and the good environment.

    Cons

    If you're working in ADCO and away from your family, then only homesickness is the mean problem that you can encounter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always check the welfare of the employees to meet their basic needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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

    Cons

    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

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

    I have been working at ADCO full-time (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.

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