    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates)

    I have been working at Emirates Aluminium full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Semi government organization, so working hours are 42.5 per week which is considered pretty good in this part of the world. Similarly holidays are ample on various occasions.

    Cons

    - So much emiratization that the expat employees feel like second or third class citizens when it comes to career growth/ promotions or training opportunities.
    - Salary growth is negligible, you only get 1% increment or so on your gross every year.
    - It is a good company if you want to work short term for 3 to 4 years or if you don't bother about your career growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - At least have some opportunities for expat employees.
