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

    Pros

    Salary package and work/life balance. Pleasant colleagues.

    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.
