    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Almarai full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Tax free salary, reasonable remuneration packages for wexpats. The brand has an equity within the region which can facilitate other career opportunities.

    Cons

    The HR policies and processes are unethical and are used in a punitive manner to withhold employee entitlements. Employees pay rate is determined by their ethnic background/birthplace and not skills or performance.

    Advice to Management

    Read the companies published values, treat your peers and subordinates with respect and stand up for equality and fairness.
