    I worked at Saudi Aramco full-time

    Pros

    I worked at Saudi Aramco from 2007-2013 and loved it. Employee satisfaction varies greatly by division - I consider the years I spent at Aramco to be among the best of my professional life. I had great supervisors and formed lasting connections with my colleagues. I was well-compensated and life on "camp" was great. I felt safe and protected by what many called "Mother Aramco."

    Cons

    Life in Saudi Arabia isn't for everyone. It can be draining. I have heard from friends who are still there that the community aspects have changed and that some changes in management have led to more wide-spread dissatisfaction. (Not based on first person knowledge, I left for different reasons.)

    Advice to Management

    Keep in mind that the international workforce makes sacrifices to work for Aramco. When children who grew up as Brats return as Aramcons, you have built something very special...that only continues with continued effort at sustaining a high level of morale within the international workforce.
