    Cons

    in transport and logistics as i worked , the main challenge is to deliver your work on time, the job role is not limited,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management to to look only and only one area, that is good employee retention, almarai keeps loosing its talented and good employee for silly reasons.

    Pros

    Tax free salary, reasonable remuneration packages for wexpats. The brand has an equity within the region which can facilitate other career opportunities.

    Cons

    The HR policies and processes are unethical and are used in a punitive manner to withhold employee entitlements. Employees pay rate is determined by their ethnic background/birthplace and not skills or performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read the companies published values, treat your peers and subordinates with respect and stand up for equality and fairness.
