    Pros

    tip's are sometimes very good

    Happy employees are hard working one's

    I have been working at ADCO full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I can not find any Pros for the Company at this period.
    Maybe it is a good place for people above 45 years old who dont care about career growth

    Cons

    There is no career growth for expats and there is lots of discrimination. Career ladder is available for Emirati employees but not for expats.
    You are not safe; You can work hard but still find your self in the list of termination.

    Advice to Management

    Be Transparent and Use Management by Walk Around technique and NOT Management by Warning/Threatening.

    Fair treatment of expat community is needed.
