    Pros

    you could gain good business experience out of such big organization and huge number of people working for Etisalat

    Management is not transparent and being a local is a privilege regardless of your performance, development may not be there for expats

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more transparency needed, open door policy should be in place. more attention to expats development.

    A bad company with convincing salary and brand name

    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates)
    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates)

    I worked at Etisalat full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Brand name,
    Children education benefit,
    Timings,
    Not so challenging (Ease) of work load,
    Near monopoly situation( it can play a negative role though)
    Good salary range if you can reach grade 23 and above but if you are around 20-22 range it is average.

    Hope for realisation of change for better is always in the agenda as talented people & management joins and new blood is injected but never had been a success because of the majority of the organization consist of people whom you can not do anything with therefore talented leaves the company and viscous cycle starts.

    Cons

    Poor management and decision making,
    Many Unqualified people,
    No proper planning, preparation and communication when things are done.
    Frequently changing top management,
    No company culture,
    Very old minded office environment,
    Poor performance management,
    Not enough carrier growth,
    Discrimination in various levels and types,
    No/lacking guidelines, proper enabling information, tools, process and policies.
    Danger of starting to be blended into the "Etisalat way" and become lazy, close-minded and stagnant if you don't develop yourself independently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go to the gemba yourself,
    Walk through the floor and sit next beside the employees desk and engage, motivate and listen.
    Challenge the reports, dashboards and verify & validate it.
    Enforce basic management principles to middle management.
    Stop bringing hungry consultants who doesn't contribute much.
    Flatten the organization immediately
    Get rid of title inflation now
    Right size the fatty engineering department,
    Invest on top notch, best of the best OSS/BSS expertise,
    Stop following vendors blindly, create real value for customers.
    Identify and Retain talented staff.
