    A heady mixture of managerial incompetence and ambiguous ethics

    Senior (Former Employee) Dubai (United Arab Emirates)

    ProsThere were good and motivated people, the majority of whom have left the business in the past 18 months. Interesting challenges, good travel and opportunities to work within a diverse set of cultures.

    ConsContinual interference from the Founders causing distraction and effort being wasted. They treat so many of their staff with disdain and the management believes its staff are its slaves. Check your contract of employment as when management will all to frequently work to their interpretation of the contract rather than either the letter or a fair interpretation.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great office parties
    Friendly Senior Managers/owners

    No opportunity for growth
    Vacancies not awarded on merit but on who you know

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire the HR director and re hire the previous one or hire a new one who is more professional and doesnt run the company like its his own home

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Management constantly ignores major issues in reference to employee satisfaction.

    Contracts Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsThey pay well as an FTE; they are small so working from home is an option.

    ConsMis-management at all levels, lack of organization/communication, little to no respect for employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the people you hire, you hired them for a reason and include everyone in meetings especially when you're only 8 people strong in the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Olive Group, a good stepping stone into the field of security consulting.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood spread of different types of work in the security field, working in exciting places and for generally good clients.

    ConsGenerally a sausage factory, interested in selling as much product as possible with little regard for the quality of work or benefit to the client in the long term.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA longer term view of clients, relationships and quality of work will benefit you in the long run.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
