    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    * The weather in Oman is nice
    * The people are in general very friendly
    * The working environment is pleasant
    * The working social side is good

    Cons

    * The Management have no clue what they are doing?
    * Omanization is key along with budget savings.
    * It would be good idea "not to leave your permanent job" and come in a Contractor.
    * The non-expat Engineers in this Refinery often have no idea what they are doing?
    * The way this company is run is beyond comprehension.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    A multinational and multicultural company where local and foreigners are treating equally.
    Friendly environment and bright future for those employees who are willing to contribute to the company's goals.

    Cons

    There is no HR policy to work from distance. I missed to continue to work for Orpic due to my relocation.

    Advice to Management

    my managers were friendly and I have no further advice for them. Just keep it up.

    I have been working at Orpic full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very good and open work culture. Colleagues are generally cooperative and helpful. Competitive salary and compensation. Weather and local people's attitude towards expats are good in Sohar. Sohar is a nice town. It is much greener than other GCC countries.

    Cons

    Although systems in place are good, there is much opportunity for improvement in implementation. If you leave Oman you will have 2 years ban period in taking another employment in Oman (if you do not get NOC and it is difficult to get NOC).

    Advice to Management

    The implementation of systems to be improved. The salary and benefits to be reviewed in a certain time period to be competitive and reduce employee attrition.

    I have been working at Orpic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very challenging work environment. Loads of opportunities to prove oneself as the organisation is in the process of intregration and committed people can exploit such opportunity

    Cons

    Currently the work environment is not very condusive due to the intregration issues which has kept the morale a bit low, however this would pass as time goes by.
