    I have been working at Saudi Aramco

    Pros

    Aramco is phenomenal employer that takes excellent care of its employees. Work-life balance is a reality, work is rewarding, and retirement is not just a dream anymore for x generation.

    Cons

    If you are like I was and looking at this website to gain information on whether or not you want to make a huge life change, I want to share one item I learned after I arrived that I did not expect. Make sure you understand your departments vacation policy and be sure you are comfortable with how they manage vacation. The Department/division in has the ability to add restrictions to the company policy which can include taking all your vacation at once or force you to take most of your vacation at one time. If you are an expat take into consideration visiting family only once per year. Again every dept is different and its worth asking the question. Hope this helps.
