Aramco is a giant oil company with a government culture. The money is good.
Drilling Foreman (Former Employee), Saudi ArabiaSeptember 26, 2013
Pros: great pay and benefits if you can stand the schedule.
Cons: big company government-style culture.
Aramco by some yard sticks is the largest oil company in the world ... and it is run like a big company. They have policies and procedures in place that were drafted decades ago. The foundation of the drilling organization was laid when the countries energy industry was being run by foreign oil companies ... and for the most part is sound. There is a culture of pushing local Saudi personnel up the organization chart ... which I think all countries promote. The rigs are very old and at least partially manned by combinations of non-English-speaking crews ... which can make coordination and team-building a challenge. There are operational idiosyncrasies that take some adjusting to (Mud Cap Drilling and no roller reamers or VBR's) and like many drilling organizations the morning report is critical and the paperwork load gets heavier by the week. The company pays well, but drilling foremen earn it. The work schedule is 14 days on and 7 days off for direct hire foremen (which they call liaisonmen). They sometimes do not have two foremen for every rig and sometimes do not have enough people to allow scheduled days off. When you work your days off, you are paid for the time ... but receive no replacement time off or additional vacation/retirement/etc accrual. The housing scheme makes it very difficult to get a "nice" place to live in the company camp (small town) until you have 5 or 10 years under your belt ... and "drilling" people are restricted to living in specific camps. The job is great for anyone wanting to live between Europe and Asia, and travel on vacations and the short week off. I made it point to see things and visit outside the Aramco world; I found the country, the culture, the people and the experience in the desert and small towns incredible. Unlike the typical vision of the Arab population that many might have, I found the people genuine and eager to be friends.
