    Big company. Reliable in terms of financial. All over middle east. Annual leave with pay at your own plane ticket.

    Mostly no overtime pay. If you work extra time, you will be paid also time. Meaning time of work for the next day will be deducted

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give free ticket to lower positions. Even just every 2 years.

    Pros

    Large organisation with lots of Depts and job oppertunities if your looking to move to Middle East. Recruitment team good and onboarding process is straight forward. Lots of peers to
    Help you and to learn from whilst you work there and to help you make friends if relocating. Benefits and pay are ok but not industry leading.

    Cons

    Your induction is very much on the job learning.There is a glass calling in terms of how far you can get promoted. You are not treated like a person you are just a payroll number. Once you are onboard do not expect big salary increments they will do the least they can get away with each year. Buisiness is set up to protect the family rather than to serve its customers both internal and external meaning you may feel the pressure of red tape stopping you do a good job rather than support and encouragement to deliver the best you can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The executive team need to empower leadership and management to make decisions then leave them to it. Too many decisions made at a high level with absolutely no understanding of the impact they have to more junior staff. As commented by others the car parking situation is terrible but executive joke that no parking means people will come earlier in the meantime daily parking fines are imposed due to absolutely no where legal to park close by and way to many employees in an area that was not designed for office building employing thousands of staff management can and should build a car park.
