    I worked at Saudi Aramco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The final salary for western expats is quite above expectations (along with no national income tax) and work hours are set at 40 hours a week, rarely ever having to work overtime. The number of vacations days are quite high too.

    Cons

    This company is extremely bureaucratic and work progresses very slowly. It is hard to obtain good work experience during the early part of your career. It is best to work for this company toward the end of your career instead of the beginning.

      I have been working at Saudi Aramco full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Great work environment and good salaries for fresh graduate engineers. Big company where you can navigate and engage through assignments and projects. Good reputation.

      Cons

      Unstable company profile since it's purely linked to global oil prices. There is a noticeable gap between different departments within the company in terms of evaluation and proficiency of the management.

      Advice to Management

      Thank you for your effort but keep the standards high as before. Continuous budget reduction is affecting the company negatively as employees satisfaction is reducing as well.

      Advice to Management

      Abonden That old style managment , keep on motivating people , they need it at FPD and do not waste the enginers times by assigning them additional useless tasks extra to the important ones . Time is a valuable resource at Fpd.
