Very divisive work culture

Improper work responsibility and authority distribution. Subordinates bypass as a routine. Gang culture predominated.Back biting at project and corporate level.Own departement colleagues misinform management just to show one in poor light.

Pros

Good office locations

Cons

Long hours. Difficult to get resources.

it was a nice place to work i was there from 2011 to 2017

The teams i've been with are very professional and i had the opportunity to be lead HSE for a couple of projects. Most of the management team was nice. Work was not that difficult although a lot of pressure was there but the good part is we were properly compensated.

Pros

hardship allowance short rotations food allowance if assigned in city

Cons

no job security you may find that one day you are their golden boy, then they kick you out the next day when you are of no use

Stressful Work

The pressure created by the middle management is tremendous. No work life balance. You can be called at any time even during holidays. Never ending meetings. The meetings could go for hours.

Pros

Flexible working time. Reputed Company. Good pay if you know how to negotiate.

Cons

Long working hours. Never ending meetings.

Biased company towards Arabs

Been over 6 years in this company. The company is good for early development. Other than that, majority of career growth options and promotions are meant for Arabs. Others may need twice the experience and hopefully some manager stepping out for you to get that career growth if you are lucky. Major Wasta system here.

Pros

Good for early development

Cons

Not much career growth or promotions unless you are an Arab national

Highly professional

Freedom of work, enrichment of skills, extremely human touch and policies reflecting compassionate approach. All these resulted in rapid growth while ensuring customer delight. Multi cultural, mulgi national culture very well accommodated and made homogeneous. In nut shell, it was a memorable experience, worth sharing with professional circle. The best organization ever worked

Pros

Compassionate leave-when my mother expired, no leave was adjusted, willingness to pay travel cost

Cons

Absolutely nothing

Good Company to work for learning. Career growth in procurement is question mark.

JOB Security and growth is question mark, particularly in Supply Chain Management. Person based instead of Company policy based for career growth and job security. Very good company to work and learn.

Pros

Strong Vision; Good leadership ; Well defined job description

Cons

NO Job security, Person based, Performance not linked with your job security.

Overall Productive but better control on cost management required

In a nutshell the Company is good but there are many pockets of regional discrimination. Heads enjoy too much power and they show dictatorship attitude in case of any kind of work related disagreement. Objections are taken in very negative way by HODs.
