    Pros

    Great efforts to recruit and offers a good compensation package. Retail giant - good work experience provided you are working with a good manager.

    Cons

    Not much effort into retaining employees or keeping them happy. Too much red tape to get simple things done. Based in Kuwait... big effort required to live in this country.

    Advice to Management

    More efforts need to keep employees happy and stay true to the offer contract.

    I have been working at MH Alshaya full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Job Security One of the best known company in MENA region. Working here gives exposure to many areas and you feel involved in various activity. Multi Nationality People work together. Annual increment, Good Salary Package. Inventive System.

    Cons

    Internal Development is slow. Different Salaries for different Nationality. No Fly Ticket for employee working as staff. Senior Management hired externally. Does not cover Insurance for Family. Internal Transfer almost impossible.

    Advice to Management

    People working on same level for 4 Years and above to be interviewed to understand strength and give opportunity to move into different roles based on strength of people.

    Cons

    Not much to share after having so many positive Pro's points share above but still there are few ares to focus and do more like - 1. Promote Old Employees to change their Domains if they are interested so instead of hiring new candidate. There are cases where people got this chance and they moved forward and doing better in new areas but still needs a process in place so that it makes sure company promotes such movement....
