    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Saudi Aramco full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Money and that's really it

    Cons

    Everything, Culture is Corrupt, Racism, Abusive Saudis who hate Expats. Abusive Supervisors who yell at Employees and get away with it because they are Saudi and you are an Expat. Company is all marketing but behind the Abaya its basically a horrible local company that used to be an American owned and is the reason why it has the reputation it used to have, good job screwing it up.

    Former Employee - Secretary in Dhahran
    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    The money, free healthcare, (almost) free housing.

    Cons

    If you get assigned to a difficult Manager it will negatively impact your overall experience. As a Westerner you may encounter disrespect and resentment. The Secretary role duties can be very mundane and there is very little scope for progression. You may be working in a building away from the main area which can feel isolating, with no canteen or few expats. Life on camp is ok, if bland. It is compound life and you do get used to it, but it can feel very enclosed. The houses are somewhat dated, but they are ok. Some expats (there are some exceptions, thankfully!) are surprisingly not that welcoming and friendly. Weather is very hot from April to October, particularly in June, July and August. Finally, it is a 'lucky dip' to which department you get assigned to. A good/bad Manager can make/break the experience.
