Like in any other company in the world, there remains to be pockets of poor performers and sarcastic people at individual and managment levels.

Good things are hard to come by. There are a lot of employees who clearly understand the change takes time and we are all for it. Keep up the good work.

    What if Saudi Aramco (as is today) finds itself in a Real Competitive Environment?

    Pros

    Saudi Aramco is a great place for those seeking job security (not career security). Career security refers to developmental opportunities that prepare you as an individual employee to compete outside your current employer. However, if you are interested in a job that will pay for the next 30 years or so but will turn you into a person with a set of very obsolete skills, then Saudi Aramco is the right place for you!!

    Cons

    very stagnant organizational culture and rigid org structure. Too much focus on PR both internally and externally and a lot of CYA events. Mid and high level management members seem to be aware of the current challenges facing the company and the industry as a whole; but have not been successful in creating the type of organizational culture that would continually learn to adapt to the current and emergent challenges.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The brain drain may be stopped by creating a lively organizational culture that attracts and retains the human capital needed to take the company where you want/need it to be.

    I have been working at Saudi Aramco

    Pros

    The big paycheck is the base for coming here, but there's also the low cost of living (company subsidised housing).

    Cons

    The work life balance here can be difficult. If you are an expat there won't be any real advancement for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either get rid of the expats, or treat them fairly. Hold everyone accountable in their positions, and get rid of the dead wood.
