Good company to work for

I started with Olive in 2004 and worked there until 2016 and in this time the company went through some difficult times but I stuck with them. They used to be very involved with their employees when they were a small company but as they grew they became more corporate and did not care about us. But still I had a good experience with them. In the end I had to leave because the wages got so low it was not worth the time and effort.

Pros

Good guys working there

Cons

Salary

Olive Group

Olive Group is like many other PMC's working in the MENA. Its a sink or swim culture. It was a good job. The management team was pretty good except for a couple exceptions. It's difficult for an American to get on with OG these days.

Hard work

Fast paced and diverse, 2 days are never the same. You spend a lot of time away from home and family. However balanced with time of an salary not too bad.

Productive and fun working places

The only time you are happy is when you finish and go to bed. Overworked and poor pay.I was Fleet manager,Shift leader and all sorts of jobs we do. we report damages to camp site manager and looked after our Guards. Check badge, collect them every day count and put them back in the night .the work keeps piling up and you cant ask for personal development training and they wont pay for it. I try asking only to be turned down by ouir project manager.

Busy life in the oil and gas industry

Early starts and preparation is key to having a good day in the life of a security team leader. Often planning and briefing team members on tasks throughout the day. Difficult environment to work in being away from the family but good amount of time off is allocated.

Pros

good preoject specific facitties

Cons

away from home for too long

Overall not with standing issues at the time, generally a good company.

I worked for Olive before with Olive a number of your ago on a short term project where both management and other employees were very much bonded due to the urgency and threat level. Sadly a number of years later, the atmospherics had changed due to management and the business driven attitude, micro management and lack of comradery. I'm sure some individuals would be happy working 15 hrs a day, been a number, with little or no thanks.

Pros

Accomadation clean and usually 1 man rooms

Cons

Very long and usually non active days

when you find the work is fun

being interpreter has been a lot to do with watching, concentrating on small details as everything does matter. understanding the culture and obey,interacting with people due to the long day hours.

Extremely difficult work but very rewarding

The job itself was very tough. Long hours in the sun and constantly on the move. Very fast paced and engaging. It was very rewarding in the end. People were great.
