    I have been working at Sofcon as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Giving salary on time salary

    Cons

    Losing the passport of employees, Always thinks the welfare of the company but not the employees. Administration gives you hard time when exiting or resigning. Ignore your request and doesn't answer your email.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees so that they do not resign and change all your administration because they do not know what they're doing

    I have been working at Sofcon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working with Saudi Aramco PMT.

    Cons

    Avoid it at all cost (very low salary). First of all, wages will be given on the 10th or 13th of the next month. Secondly, there are not proper daily basis on which work should be done. Tons of projects, which is good yet project managers don't care; they use force to let you stay by providing an Overtime Work. So your weekend is gone for an overtime. Daily time sheets record must be done if you forget salary detection. Lack of coordinates between engineers & project / manager engineer's. Also, lack of knowledge even if engineer is 15 years experience. Usually, we get knock on the head when client shout at us how this is being handled ! We play on the client and go political engineer to convince them.

    In terms of General Administration, fingerprints daily when reaching the office and getting out. Must give justification if going on vacation. If you tell them its personal they will not agree (they need the reason for your leaving). Company thoughts is money is First, employee is Last. Very poor Administration and HR policies. Very bad treatment as well. Management decisions are highly influenced by the unqualified and old employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more for the Employee rather than the Rules or submittal of project last minute. A company should be ruled, lead and monitored by the Management team with a strong system and proper assessment of employees, instead of the assessment based on the feedback of unqualified employees. Evaluate your Employee based on Three Months Basis.
