Not bad

Been working as an operator (shift) in water operations dept.Salary is in time.Priority to safety.Work environment is good.Management is approachable but won't take any action.No increments. May 10% after 10 to 15 years.Paid leave.Health insurance is the worst for grade 6 and below employees.No promotions. May after 10 to 15 years.

A place having too much learning opportunities but no career-er growth

Getting promotion is DEWA is very difficult even if you get promoted to a higher grade your salary will not be same to those working on the same grade. HR policy for accommodation allowance and promotion for existing employees needs to be addressed in order to retain talent.

DEWA is a safe, efficient and sustainable workplace

Fire and HSE week celebration in DEWA was the one of the awesome moment i have joyed there. Class room training to Road Marathon activities, rewards system etc. were real examples of commitments by top management about employees health, well-being and promotion of HSE culture across all the departments/divisions in DEWA.

Superior life-work balance & compensation

DEWA is one of the largest utilities companies, if not the largest in the UAE. Since it is government owned and operated, employees are offered more holidays than the private sector, competitive salaries, and adequate life-work balance.


Job Security


Challenging to change roles/secure a raise

The company is very good.

I like the salary and the workplace is good. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to go abroad. Besides, the Emiratees treats everyone kindly and respectfully.


Considers many leaves. Ex: short Leave, sick leave etc


Uniforms are having dull color. It seems gloomy and sad.
