    I worked at Saudi Aramco full-time

    Pros

    It is a nice place to work if you just want to occupy space and find a husband.

    Cons

    Women will never have the advancement opportunities that men are given because the men refuse to take orders from a woman. It does not matter whether you are a female expat or Saudi the men treat you as a servant. I was actually told by a man that my job was to make tea.

    Advice to Management

    There are women working within Aramco who are very qualified but you have them placed in secretarial positions and it is unfair. If a female saudi woman applies for a position and she has a degree and has work experience she should be classified as an 11+ employee. Shame on you for making all the women serve in clerical positions unless they are doctors.
