    I have been working at Saudi Aramco full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Money and benefits are excellent. Package is very attractive. If you live inside camp is a very family friendly and well kept compound. Lots of restrictions to just enter or invite some one to visit you.

    Cons

    Horrible, working with bunch of idiots in a dictatorial monarchy. Ridiculous amount of restrictions to just enter camp or invite some one to visit you. If you want to loose you skills and connection with technology and commit a carrier suicide its a place to be for you.

    Former Employee - Engineering Consultant in Dhahran
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Saudi Aramco

    Pros

    Low stress work environment - can get away with doing little or nothing. Lifestyle for US expatriates in Dhahran are outstanding - like living at a resort. Compensation per unit of work output, is very high (not because pay is high, but required work output is very low).

    Cons

    Down side is that your prefessional skills will atrophy, rendering you unemployable anywhere else. Great place to retire from; horrible as a stepping stone to something better.

    I have been working at Saudi Aramco

    Pros

    Money, money, money and six weeks vacation per year - yes really, six weeks vacation per year - and you are given the travel money to "repatriate" to your home country once per year! The opportunity for lots of foreign travel and great benefits. Most employees work a standard 40 hour work week.

    Cons

    Limited advancement opportunites for expatriate employees - basically you stay in your technical area with occasional promotions within your discipline - however, training and development to keep up with your expertise are normally provided. Long periods of time away from home for expatriate workers and limited opportunities for the cultural activities that Americans are used to at home in the United States.
