    I worked at Aramex full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    It was a very challenging environment. You have to evolve everyday & learn the tricks of the trade by yourself. Its like you are dropped in the middle of the ocean & told to swim to the shore. Its a tough job but in the end you come out as a brave swimmer. You get to learn a lot. Very tolerant with freshers. Its a perfect for a start up of your career. Work is not balanced well as most of them are overloaded then what should be. Aramex believes in squeezing the last drop out of you. Promotions till 2007 was based on performance wise. It was a very healthy environment. Open door policy.

    Cons

    Now its become a very biased culture from 2008 its about either you are an arab or connected to someone in the top or you go to be a beautiful looking woman who never says know for getting a promotion. The motto is he is doing a good job why to promote him & lose the productivity or revenue he is generating. The culture after the change in the management has been very demotivating. Open doors policy is thrown to the trash. You either dont voice your opinion or if you do start circulating your cv as very soon you will be out of job. There is managers promoted to departments who do not even know how to spell the main product or service being provided by that dept. It is a very biased culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back open door policy. Be transparent with promotions. Stop giving under table increments to the favored employees only. Give out equal opportunities to all regardless of the nationalities or culture or gender. Be a Fair employer who is concerned about his employees to gain more loyalty & Increase your productivity & revenue as well. Fadi Ghandour & the new ceo Hussein Hachem is not even aware of how the employees currently are being dealt with in the lower levels.

    Former Employee - Chief Accountant in Nicosia (Cyprus)
    Former Employee - Chief Accountant in Nicosia (Cyprus)

    I worked at Aramex full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's an international company that have fairly wide network which pushes employees to improve their communication skills, and the company has an updated technology when it comes to data processing/tracking which makes accounting tasks easy.

    Cons

    over stressful to key employees as they have almost a direct contact to regional CEO's who look at the bottom line without much appreciation to the hard wok done to reach that point, and salaries paid don't match the wok done

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    it's the responsibility of the accountant to show the financial result as it is, while it's the management responsibility to make the negative result to positive
