roll the dice
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

Aramco has been a good experience
Senior Consultant (Current Employee) –  Ash SharqīyahApril 6, 2018
New employees usually are placed in transactional roles to learn how the business works and become familiar with policies and procedures. The culture is one that values humility, respect, politeness and friendliness.

They also value mental toughness and resiliency, but this demonstrated over years of work. Many senior people find it challenging to revert back into a transaction role when they first come. The work environment is friendly and there is a definite need to mentor and help the young Saudi men and women to become more proficient as professional in the Supply Chain Management functions (or indeed any other).

Once you establish a good reputation as an mentor who helps other team members and has a strong work ethic, you begin to experience demand pull requests. This is how I ended up working on a project requested by the Sr. Vice President.

Like many jobs, is all about team work and collaboration and establishing relationships and giving of yourself or the good of the team. Mentoring and helping some of the young professionals was the most rewarding part of the job for me.
Pros
A sense of professional pride accomplish very challenging cross departmal tasks.
Cons
Change happens very slowly there, so if you are used to fast change management, you have to re-calibrate your expectations.

Aramco set rules in place but Aramco security and Government forces enforce their own terminology of the rules or policy. No consistency between departments

Inspector Telecom, ISP/OSP and civil (Former Employee) –  Ash Sharqīyah, UdhaliyahJanuary 16, 2018
During my 9 years of services in Saudi Aramco I found great satisfaction related to my job, office environment, the uniqueness of multi national employees incorporated as one team with extremely cooperative and friendly atmosphere. The company takes grate initiatives for the excellent welfare of its employees and their family members. With the state of the art technology and methods at work place often sending employees for professional courses in and out of the kingdom on its own expenses. To me it was more like a home than a just a company.

Consultant Exp at at Aramco
Unconventional Operations Expert "Consultant" (Current Employee) –  YesJanuary 5, 2018
I was hired by Aramco to help develop their "Emerging Unconventional Asset Department" my role is to help develop and Integrated Operations Center (IOC) while implementing the use of Decision Space Geology "DSG"
Over all my experience here has been very pleasant. Its a great place to work as a Consultant, but if I was offered full time employment I would definitely accept the job as it pays very well and have GREAT Benefits.
You just have to be open minded and accepting of the culture here in Saudi Arabia. The Saudis are great people, every person I have met has been king, giving, and just very pleasant to work with.
Lets not forget the great food here in Saudi!!!! That's always a nice perk when you relocate
Pros
Great benefits, pay, free housing and utilities
Cons
Being away from home
