    Pros

    Working hours.. and leaves... following the international standards.. open minded... excellent experience in one field only... and I cant find any other words...

    Cons

    The career path... and the promotion is very difficult to get... and you will be shocked when some one who was reporting to you and you were teaching him and then he becomes your boss...

    Advice to Management

    You should increase the loyalty to your employees...

    Pros

    benefits are great and opportunity to develop your career

    Cons

    racism against locals (especially fresh graduate )
    no clear training preparation program for young engineers / fresh graduates
    worst HR ever
    laws are broken for some people
    many worker abuse (working extra time without compensation ( engineer level and above)

    Advice to Management

    better to look after local new graduates,
    we need an answer to 1 question how can 3 siblings work in the same authority on high lever (1 evp, 1 vp, 1 vp ) !!!!!
    it became like a family property !!!!
    how come some people are promoted against the Dubai government law (DEWA Tarzan Case )
    how come there are 2 units for hiring locals and non locals ???
    why is there a dominant nationality in some divisions !! (finance )

    so many questions that needs to be checked rather than concentrating on the media and awards !!!!

    " a quality in a work place is a way of work not an evidence to prepare for an award"
