    I have been working at Kuwait Petroleum full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    flexibility and good salaries. 14 payments + bonuses. Flexible in terms of timing, gives you the opportunity to organize your private life easily.

    Cons

    Kuwaiti company, in a sense that all the decisitions get ages to take place. The base salary is high but the promotions aren't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Two many managers and two few people on the core of the business. Their strategy is based on the short term profits which is not very sustainable on this kind of business.

    I worked at Kuwait Petroleum full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    One gets a window to the world through oil and other markets

    Cons

    They encourage their own citizens to take up positions and this has helped them to contain the all-experience in the oil and gas field..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Corporation has grown by integrating other government companies like KOC, KNPC, Kufpec, KOTC, KAFCO and others bringing them under an Umbrella Organization like the Kuwait Petroleum Corporation, directly responsible to the Oil Ministry of the State of Kuwait, with the Oil Minister, its Chairman..

    I worked at Kuwait Petroleum

    Pros

    State owned company with great pension scheme. Enjoyable people to work and part of a major industry with impact globally.

    Cons

    Kuwaiti nationals do get preferred status and perks for level of work they do. Career progression is limited and you can do the same job for a long time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to develop your top talent. They do enter the company and are keen to develop and progress. Opportunities to work globally and in the Kuwaiti culture are other ways for this development.
