    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 Management

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

    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
