    Reverse training keep you associated with all related field of civil engineering. Very good learning platform for freshers. Will see an organised working style with sophisticated tools and softwares.

    Advice to Management

    Sobha being an industry leader should be able to deliver project on time. Project goes haphazard, because there isn't even a proper planning department. It affects the work of every other department at site.

    Pros

    Everyday is a new challenge and something different to learn

    Cons

    No work life balance - you are expected to work 24x7. Even then salaries are not paid on time - nearly 4 months delay in payment of salaries. Delayed payments to vendors. No proper business model to run the business - mainly on account of family members in important positions. When they can no longer afford to run business they terminate employees and even do not pay their final settlements. They cancel visas without paying the final settlements. Lots of cash flow issues.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your Employees happy and your Company will definitely succeed.
