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 Management

Don't believe my advice would be of any value

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    As an expat, if you want to make a lot in a sort period of time, it's a nice option. Also, you will gain experience like nowhere else on Earth. As a matter of fact, you will feel like you're not on Earth.

    Cons

    Because of nationalization, completely incapable nationals get management and executive positions. They have no idea what they are doing, but get these positions because they have contacts. The company never speaks of profits or margins, so there is no accountability; money is wasted everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Start hiring people with global experience, regardless of their nationality. Get deadwood managers out of the way.
