    Review for SUPRA Division of JUMBO Electronics, DUBAI

    Pros

    Jumbo is an Excellent group to Work in Gulf.
    Salary Structure at par, not best in industry.
    CEO and VP level Management is Nice, if you get chance to interact.

    Cons

    This review is purely and specially for SUPRA Division of JUMBO dealing for Home Appliances and other small appliances as you will not find the details of division overview anywhere on internet.

    - Company hold your passport while you are there in UAE, not a good sign of trust with Employee. One who is coming to new place doesn't have a choice to deny.
    - No monthly allowance is provided for local transportation and mobile communication for company related works.
    - HR is less supportive once you join the group.
    - The Bonus part of your salary is never given to employee as committed during the selection procedures, especially in SUPRA case.
    - Annual Increments are not good in Group Overall and forgot anything in SUPRA at all.
    - JUMBO puts an employment ban as it offers LLC visa not a free zone visa. It is next to impossible to remove employment ban imposed by Jumbo. Realistically, you have to work till your visa is valid.
    - The umbrella company Jumbo is excellent to work but SUPRA division is struggling to survive as a brand in market so survival part is difficult due to political views within group.
    - South Indian Dominance as expected in Gulf, which spoils the office environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Transparency required within organization as company vision has to be shared with employee if its employee oriented company.
    - Pls. also change your overseas travel policies. It not even at par with industry standards.

    Strong vision for the company, which must be communicated down the line to the lowest levels.

    Pros

    Good exposure to market
    Learning Experience
    Training
    Work Environment

    Cons

    Below market pay scale
    In-effective performance evaluation and appraisal techniques
    Red-taped policies and procedures
    Slow growth rate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A serious revamping of the performance evaluation and appraisal techniques, growth for old employees and a transparent outlining of procedures will make a huge difference, considering the fact that competitors are able to easily get hold of talented employees.
                                       As a result, all the training provided to employees bear no fruit and also a serious consideration of relevant experience as opposed to the ranking of the university needs to be ensured, as the ranking of the university plays a minimal role in the effectiveness / non-effectiveness of an employee in a particular role.
