Former Employee - Technical Consultant  in  Dubai (United Arab Emirates)
Former Employee - Technical Consultant in Dubai (United Arab Emirates)

Pros

If you like to remain sitting at a desk and pretending to do work, this is your place.

Cons

a) Employees are manipluated on joining. You are given an offer letter with basic terms and conditions, but once you join you are made to sign another contract (customized for each employee) that was never shared earlier. Some of the terms include 3 months notice, recovery of expenses upto 50,000 AED if you leave within 12 months, cannot join competitor etc.

b) This is a family run business, driven by husband and wife (Andrew and Savitha)

d) While you join with a dignified role as a Consultant, your job profile is not dignified in any manner. You have to take permission for every act:
- Macro management to the extent never ever seen
- Call management before going to a customer site as well as when you leave the customer site.
- Keep management copied on every silly email
- Drive onsite activities remotely whenever possible (DO NOT go onsite)
- Drive remote activities one email whenever possible (DO NOT WebEx)
- You are expected to remain seated at your desk, no socializing with colleagues in office, take minimum breaks etc.
- You are expected to be available 24/7, but in case your'e late to office you will have to go through a 'living in UAE' session

e) Management calls this a professional company, but they keep fighting together amongst themselves creating a weird environment in office (remember they are a couple pretending to be professional business partners)

f) 10 employee company. Average attrition of 1 person per month.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You could grow your business, if you grew up to be adults..

    Pros

    Salary is good and reaches on time. Strong Principal Companies to work with. Some very good colleagues to work with.

    Cons

    Unprofessionally managed company. Micromanagement is the style. No delegation of power and decision making. Two tier organisation. Top tier is CEO & GM and lower tier is all other employees. The management believes in putting unnecessary pressure on employees all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be Nice to Employees. They are also humans. They need to improve their people management skills drastically.

    Pros

    i like having the opportunity to see an event from end to end, some while ago i was visiting a customer for regular system check and they mentioned about some new requirements. After updating the account manager, he and i visited the customer and i presented the options for upgrading their system. Then i prepared the configurations and assisted in the proposal and managed the opportunity registration with the supplier. Then after we got the PO and the equipment came i managed the delivery, installed and configured the upgrade and now continue supporting the customer, and this is a repeatable thing that happens all the time. This is much better then just doing one part of this and not feeling involved.

    Cons

    whilst the office has the minimum amenities it would be good to have somethings to help relax, like a table tennis table or pool table like some of the companies in India.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    happy with the work, please keep the multi tasking job unchanged, i think most of us like to do different things from time to time
