SABIC – Why Work For Us?


undefined

SABIC is headquartered in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia) and is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of chemicals, agri-nutrients, plastics and metals. We supply these materials to companies, who use them to make a wide array of products on which much of the world has come to depend.

At SABIC, we believe in using chemistry to power the ambitions of our customers, business partners, employees and societies we live in. We call this “CHEMISTRY THAT MATTERS™”.

We have operations in over 40 countries, customers in over 100, and employ around 40,000 people. But, we are always looking for ways to continually develop and grow.

    Pros

    Global company with global growth opportunities. Many of my projects include people from 3-4 continents..I am always amazed to see so many nationalities working together on one project.

    Inclusiveness, open culture, progressive management, truly cares about the community and the employees. Unlike most fortune 50 company, the bottom line is not the money, it is the whole picture: employees, community, customers, environment, financials.

    Cons

    Major acquisitions over the last 2 decades introduced conflicting cultures greatly undermining the core value of the company. Fortunately SABIC proved strong and resilient, and it is managing to absorbent and unify, but it is taking costly, painful time. Every few years, we get run over by the "Saudization Train" and we loose valuable talent, only to replace them later

    Advice to Management

    Reward performance, not silence. Reward innovation and new ideas, not "lay low" --make no mistakes-- and wait for promotion. Too much emphasis on limited individual KPIs every year, taking away from other work for the greater good.
