    Pros

    SABIC's Supply Chain organization is a great place to work with competitive salaries, strong benefits, and and the ability to grow within your role or on to other positions within the company. The management team is solid and cares about employees.

    Cons

    This is a very analytic environment, and if your skill set is not focused on Supply Chain analytics, it can prove to be challanging for career growth.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be employee advocates, finding the right balance between results and work life balance. Continue to promote those with strong results.

    Pros

    Excellent work life balance and interesting work environment.

    Cons

    Good middle management positions, but if you want to move up further through the ranks, you have to move to rural area locations to "check the boxes"

    Pros

    Great company overall and they are truly interested in investing in their people through training. Can't complain about the pay, benefits, and career opportunities.

    Cons

    As of lately there has been a lot of management movement and instability within the company which makes it difficult to stay focused on the task at hand.

    Advice to Management

    More structure and duidance is needed when it comes to young engineers and their career.

    Pros

    Starved for talent, easy to shine, they'll pay extra for you, awesome benefits.

    Cons

    Ceiling is lower than other companies because of Saudi administration at the top. Company doesn't really have a mission, still looking for real innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Give more opportunities to Westerners at top-level roles.

    Pros

    My manager didn't have high expectations of me. Or if they did then it wasn't followed through

    Cons

    Everyone is too complacent. Older employees that can't adjust to younger employees making, clashing. Made to feel like things are what they are...

    Pros

    Decent benefits and compensation. Management makes an honest effort to keep employees engaged and motivated. Technology is widely utilized and does allow some flexibility

    Cons

    Clash of cultures can be very frustrating at times. Many HR policies are counterproductive and force motivated employees out

    Pros

    Great work environment. You are treated like a regular employee. There is no micromanaging. I would recommend interning here to everyone who is studying accounting or finance.

    Cons

    The only con would be sometimes there's not enough work to do. Lots of down time not as active as some work places. Not fast pace.
