    Cons

    Do not expect a direct promotion here. You do your job and pass on your expertise to young Saudis. There are no deadwood jobs here anymore like in the old times. You can use your free time to gain new skills and then apply for other job opportunities within the Company. Lookout for new projects that can enhance your career and help you move up.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to every ideas. And use the best of ideas. Do not make decisions that are too costly like acquiring short lived IT solutions or unpromising technology like ATM, the product of telephone network gurus, not IT network engineers.
