Has badly deteriorated over the years
Sr. A&P mechanic (Former Employee) –  Tanajib and RasTanuraFebruary 11, 2019
I worked in the rotor wing aviation dept. Was never very organized always had to work overtime. Most of the time my schedule was 12 days on 2 days off and then swapped to night shift. And the the same thing over again. Never enough people on the maintenance crew and forced to work overtime, or you will get a low PMP which you will probably get anyway. Pretty much a culture of us against them, expats vs Saudis and your going to lose over there. The mental and emotional frustration is all ways going on in your head, after awhile it’s just not worth it. Trying to get rid of all expats so saudization is in full swing, but the only problem is that most are completely lazy so without us nothing would get done.
Pros
Insurance, 42 day vacation 401k
Cons
Loneliness, work schedule, isolation in the middle of nowhere

Document Controller/ Statistical Assistant (Current Employee) –  Al-UdailiyahJanuary 30, 2019
On day to day basis, we are receiving lots of transmittals, drawings, and it was fun for me until they recently change the management. There is no job security at all especially they are now implementing the Saudization plan. The most enjoyable part of our Job is interacting with the reviewers (Engrs, SPE, Consultant) on at the end of the day we smiled and laugh.
Pros
free meal
Cons
applies only to locals (benefits)

Laboratory Technician (Current Employee) –  Ash SharqīyahAugust 30, 2018
it's a huge company and a grate one but it hires anyone so the work environment is a mixture of educated and uneducated people. so you have to be lucky to be within a professional team or at least under a professional supervisor. Saudi Aramco is not like how it was 10 years ago.
Pros
A lot of Benefits
Cons
Unprofessional
