One of the best companies in UAE

Professional interviewTechnical approach Best Service to customers Good experience But there is so much of favoritism.. to grow fast, we have to be shoe lickers.. one has to be a politician to remain there... no matter how hard the others work.. anyways.. its the ‘fittest and the flatterers’ that survive

Work hard for very little recognition appreciation, financially and morally

Work hard for very little recognition appreciation, financially and morally.Attention and raises are mainly favoritized , if your line manager likes you, you will grow in the company if not you will stay with same pay/ grade over the years.Salaries are low for younger crowd. It is a comapny full of managers only and rest below them are not treated in a way where they will evolve or get salary increments so on.

Good company

Overall good company but the growth is very minimal. You need to beg for good increments. It is like a retirement kind of a company where the work is less and pay is also less.

Pros

Less stress

Cons

Repetitive work

Very professional work environment and one of the best companies in the UAE to work with.

Petrofac is a high profile MN-EPC oil&gas facilities management company head quartered in the UAE. Their packages are very attractive and facilities provided at site are exceptional. Management is mostly Lebanese and Indians. But the company has a great standard and a quality work environment. Salary always on time. ❤️

Good office locations

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
