    Pros

    Salary on Time, Good Culture to work, Jumbo is a good institution to learn through hard way that grooms you to work in any organization.

    Cons

    Poor Salary not up to Industry Standards, poor increment (sometime may be Aed 20) no annual bonus and great disappointment no Promotions If you work for long tenure with service of ten years or so. That is the main reason most staff looks for other opportunities and do not stay for long.

    Advice to Management

    Need to Improve the salary & benefits structure as per retail industry standards. Instead of Hiring new people cost same cost need to invest in old. Once upon a time when owner was there Jumbo was the best company to make again better need a good vision of owner.
