Former Employee - Inpatient Ward Intern in Dhahran (Saudi Arabia)

I worked at Saudi Aramco as an intern for less than a year

Pros

I actually grew up in Saudi Aramco. Great place, very smart professionals, and friends you will keep for life because of the unique experience

Cons

In the latter years I was there the company was trying to hire more Saudi nationals and cut back on expat employees. Sometimes this led to under qualified managers, but I wouldn't be the best person to quote on this subject, better to look for an engineer's review, they were what made the company run

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't believe my advice would be of any value

    Current Employee - Helicopter Pilot in Ras Tanura (Saudi Arabia)

    I have been working at Saudi Aramco full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    +Salary benefits (better than 90% of all other companies around KSA).
    +Built on a solid foundation.
    +Future proof

    Cons

    -Middle management is what will bring this company down.
    -Its funny how the majority of employees are not happy about their immediate bosses. Something is definitely wrong.
    -Appearances are more important than getting the work done in a safe, efficient way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    VPs should stop acting like celebrities wasting money back and forth and start seeing the reality of the state their employees are in.

    Current Employee - Engineering Consultant in Dhahran (Saudi Arabia)

    I have been working at Saudi Aramco full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Money and benefits are excellent. Package is very attractive. If you live inside camp is a very family friendly and well kept compound. Lots of restrictions to just enter or invite some one to visit you.

    Cons

    Horrible, working with bunch of idiots in a dictatorial monarchy. Ridiculous amount of restrictions to just enter camp or invite some one to visit you. If you want to loose you skills and connection with technology and commit a carrier suicide its a place to be for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to hire qualified expatriates, who wouldn't get involved with racial, tribal, religious politics in making their decisions
