Good pay, good insurance, long hours, no concern for employee well-being

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Kuwait (Kuwait)

ProsPay for Kuwait is about double of the same position in the US (60 hr work week though). Affordable travel since you are in the Mideast.

ConsPromote from within policy means you could end up with managers who are better suited for other jobs. Remote sites living conditions are the same as a stationed soldier (not good) and no additional compensation vs. the non-remote employees (nice shared apartment and car in the city). There seems to be a sense that a revolving door is a better business strategy than retaining competent talent.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to manage. Read your own handbook and apply policy evenly.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
