    Pros

    - Friendly Environment
    - HSE is a Top Priority

    Cons

    - No Career Paths for Expats.
    - Expats are treated differently than UAE Nationals.

    Advice to Management

    To treat all employees the same with regard to promotions and career paths. This will make the UAE national work harder and compete.

    Opportunities to develop your skills
    Good life/work balance
    Nice working environment

    Enforce HR polices and procedures to ensure the organisation is efficient. There are too many slackers which is bad for morale

    I worked at ADCO as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary package and work/life balance. Pleasant colleagues.

    Cons

    Inexperienced and unprofessional management. A lack of recognition for expatriate staff. Poor work ethic among many employees and no accountability.

    Advice to Management

    'Wasta' has a profoundly negative effect on all aspects of the organisation...morale, competence, teamwork, loyalty etc.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at ADCO full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    7-3 time, if you can be punctual. Go home and enjoy life. Benefits, average salary and good housing allowance. If want a break and go slow on work, it can be perfect for you

    Cons

    Politics, lot of interest clashing between groups and even individuals. Stressful for some unlucky ones. If you dont have ambitions but you can work hard, you are best for your colleagues and managers. Everybody works for annual targets by hook or by crook. Time clocked work, you cannot be late, leave office for 15 mins or the monthly counter starts.

    Advice to Management

    Stop ranking and praising based on old friendships but on talent and hardwork. Give everyone equal opportunity.
