    I worked at Aramco Services Company for more than 10 years

    Pros

    9/80 work schedule. Relaxed work environment

    Cons

    Contract position. Want to stay longer, but there were no openings at the time. I will keep trying to get back on . This is a very good company with excellent benefits!

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at the contractors before you let them go. They are highly skilled.

    I have been working at Aramco Services Company full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Met some great people that will be life long friends

    Cons

    The environment is one of the worst I have ever worked in, gossip, backstabbing, no one works and they all get away with it. If anyone has an issue you are not able to voice your issue, nor can you go to your HR dept. because they will NOT help or listen. I know there has been multiple complaints sent to HR and they do not do anything other than brush it under the table. Unless you are middle eastern you will move up,...

    Advice to Management

    Before coming to the states, managers should know their departments and how they function and get to know your employees instead of just gawking at the women and harassing them. The managers don't do anything other than walk around and play all day, while the hard workers that are doing work don't get credit and those who don't work get rewarded.

    I worked at Aramco Services Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits, pension, 401K with 9% match, on-site clinic, gym, 9/80 work schedule. Tolerable place if in the twilight of your career and only care about your retirement and don’t care about career advancement.

    Cons

    No professional development, unchallenging, terrible and unethical management at all Houston locations, no accountability to the toxic employees and supervisors but will terminate the ones with integrity and wanting to do the right thing. If you are beginning or in the prime of your career, then this is will not be the right place. Read the other negative reviews for more specifics on the cons on working for this company...

    I have been working at Aramco Services Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work schedule is great as far as work life balance

    Cons

    Manager never take accountability for anything they do. Will tell you task to do and complete but if upper management finds a issue with something your doing that your manager told you to do. They will deny they told you that particular task and leave you out to dry EVERYTIME! The worst place I’ve ever worked the org chart here is absolutely terrible in my opinion. A lot of “managers” have false power/ decision making...

    I worked at Aramco Services Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good 401K match at 9% + plus a pension, BUT you only get the pension if you stay minimum 5 years. Good medical benefits (health insurance is worldwide). 9/80 meaning you work 9 hour days and get every other Friday off .

    Cons

    While the medical benefits are good and reasonably price, the salary/compensation is not competitive at all. Compared to the industry average, I was severely underpaid and overworked. This company is all for show, most positions don't require you to use your degree you earned, and do not require a degree in order for you to do your job effectively. We are all just paper pushers that serve the parent company Saudi...

    Advice to Management

    You need to listen to lower level employees that can actually improve and streamline the way things are handled within your organization if you want to stay competitive in the Oil & Gas industry. All of your money is In-Kingdom only and while that money will hold you over for generations and generations, the competition is coming for you! Your competition will steal your market share no matter how much money you have,...

    Pros

    Free coffee, that’s about it.

    Cons

    Saudi manager mistreat Americans, Jews, and Christians. The like to hire people on a green card so they can pay them way below market and discriminate against them. Also, if your not Muslim you should absolutely avoid this place.

    Advice to Management

    Stop mistreating your employees and sexually harassing the female staff. HR doesn’t do anything when issues are reported!!
