    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good work life balance (time with family).

    Cons

    I have work here for 4 years, so far no bonus, no increment.
    Many of my friend was terminated since 2016, to make room for the local (Emirates). Some of them teach the local, when the times comes the management terminate them, and replace with local.
    My advice to the expat don't come and work in this company, management will use you, until the times come they will replace you with the local.
    The management will treat expat as second class worker, the local is the king.

    Advice to Management

    Don't play with employer, be honest. Don't hire permanent position after 3-4 year you replace the expat with local (after the expat the local).
    Abolish your force ranking system because it will destroy employer motivation.
