    It's a nice place to stay because you can feel that being an adco employee, it's like your own family.

    Foreman (Current Employee) Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates)

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementAlways check the welfare of the employees to meet their basic needs.

    Good satisfactory experience with some opportunities to learn but limited development and growth

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

    ProsGood technical development and learning opportunities

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementForeign trainings should be allowed. Business approvals and phases should be done at more faster pace than it is at current

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    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
