    I worked at Saudi Aramco full-time

    Pros

    Possibly travel opportunities and opportunities to save as there is so little to do.

    Cons

    Expat Women are not allowed to be married or have children. A full blown disgrace in this day and age. No career advancement and a boring work environment with unsupportive male bosses with huge egos and sexist principles

    Advice to Management

    1. This is 2018. Women have every right in the world to be married and have kids and have a career with a company. Time to change!

    Pros

    They are looking for experts in their fields. One of the main responsibilities of Ex-patriot Employees is to train younger "national" employees. Compensation and opportunities for personal travel are out of this world. If you can get a job with them, go for it. You will never look back.

    Cons

    Many people with different cultures and education were mixed together. We achieved work harmony by personal involvement, coaching and guiding the workforce. Sometimes very difficult to negotiate with Management as we had the Company (Saudi Nationals and some expats, some Americans) to deal with. The contractor management were mostly Korean and some of them was difficult to deal with while others were ok. Most of the...
