    I worked at Saudi Aramco full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are great

    Cons

    As an ex pat there, you’re basically a well-paid slave. Expect no advancement. Expect the Saudi’s to take the credit. Expect them to lie. Expect the company to lie to you about money, compensation, where you all live, yearly performance reviews, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Management tends to be very insecure. And rightly so, they know very little as they have generally bought their degrees and know nothing about the positions that they’re in. That is a result of them changing from one senior position to the next and never understanding what they’re supposed to be managing

    I worked at Saudi Aramco full-time

    Pros

    Organized workplace, good place for job security and retirement.

    Cons

    Unproductive work environment, punctuality is the most important factor in the company, not productivity. Many old mentalities are basically running the company and would not retire.

    Advice to Management

    To allow younger generations to take on leadership positions
