    Pros

    The pay was outstanding for the amount of work required

    Cons

    The host nationals have a whole different concept of getting things done quickly and easily. You better have an unbelievable amount of patience.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting people with little to no experience just because you want to Emaritize. It hurts morale and cann't be good for business. The poor leadership is apparent.

    I worked at Global Aerospace Logistics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good salary and there were people from all walks of life that brought in great experience to the positions in which they held.

    Cons

    Instability and no upward mobility. You were never sure from week to week if you would still be there the next. This gave little to no security to the employees and only added to the stresses of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Plan ahead and utilize the experience of you're work force that are in place instead of bringing in outsiders with little or no experience to supervise and head departments

    I worked at Global Aerospace Logistics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Generous salary and benefits (at least that was the case when I started)
    - The UAE is a wonderful work location ... rich in history ... warm, friendly, diverse population ... incredibly beautiful infrastructure
    - Company leadership is super decentralized -- so, you're pretty much 'on your own'
    - Every day is a new adventure ... no two days are the same ... and your duties (official or not) change on a near daily basis!

    Cons

    - Salaries and benefits are eroding to the point where it no longer makes much sense for expats to pursue employment there
    - Let there be no mistake: GAL (a commercial entity) is run by the UAE military
    - Company leadership is poor ... too non-existent
    - The only person who has your back is -- YOU!
    - Upward mobility in this company is non-existent
    - The HR Department (minus one or two expat employees) is more of a hindrance ... than it is helpful

    Advice to Management

    - Upper management needs to get out the Company Headquarters every now and then ... and actually go out to the various job locations ... and witness your employees in action ... on the job!
    - Quit promoting people into leadership positions who clearly lack the required knowledge, skills, experience and leadership abilities!

    Pros

    company gives ok salary and provides some good benefits

    Cons

    No appreciation whatsoever for hard workers

    Advice to Management

    Talking about Al Ain Polytechnic; Change the management, hire more locals not only expats, because a lot of locals can do better working with the military especially.
