    I have been working at Saudi Binladin

    Pros

    just the fact that you take part in reputable mega scale projects

    Cons

    Competence is not something that SBG is concerned with, most of the hiring is based on personal recommendations with no regard to qualifications, and in terms of project management it's a wonder this firm didn't go bankrupt decades ago.

    Advice to Management

    competence should be the first quality to look for in the employee
