We are on a good way to recovery

Uncovering corruption and scandals in Aramco is good for the success of the IPO. The young Crown Prince is a smart man, his move to bring transparency into the oil giant will put so many of the low and mid management staff out of business. However... read more

Now's the time to leave

PMT is currently getting hammered by the dozens. It looks like the company is closing down all expenditures and investments after hitting the brick wall of reality in regards to the rapidly shrinking possibility of a successful IPO. 50% reduction in... read more

It's such a shame that so much potential is completely wasted

So much potential, and nearly all of it is wasted due to complete and utter mismanagement and a fear of upsetting the locals, who generally abuse the system beyond belief. The competent few are pushed and pressurized to do enough work to mask the... read more

Watch who you take advice from

Anyone commenting here who was hired before 2012 is working under a completely different set of rules and benefits than employees who are currently being hired. Just 2 years ago they cut the bachelor return home trips from 3 to 2, but only for new... read more

What is going on with Aramco going public?

I heard in the news that Aramco will be taking themselves public? Wondering how will the company carry out the OPEC political commitments and still maximize value for stockholders?

I would think that the ungrateful Canadians should fall asleep every night thanking the old-timers from Texas and California who arrived on these shores and built all of this for them to enjoy. That's just me.

US companies now pay as much or more than Saudi Aramco

I left the company too. Voluntarily. US companies now pay as much or more than Saudi Aramco. With that said I have zero tolerance for saudis who work for non-saudi companies and run their mouth about expats. Saudis have developed and produced NOTHING... read more

Savings of 10% can be easily achieved

2017: Biggest Risk Aramco and KSA Face

Two main reasons for sinking

It is no secret that Aramco was a better and more professional environment when expats (the competent ones) were holding management positions at all levels. I believe the mistrust between Saudis and expacts, for the most part, surfaced after too many... read more

It makes me sick when in meeting, Locals, middle & high management, some VP's star speaking in Arabic ignoring the presence of the expatriate. I've seen this bad behavior with contractors also. In a few words, even if you are in principle part of the... read more

Aramco will never cut all expats loose.

They are a critical ingredient toward the success of the company, and everybody (including management) knows this. HOWEVER, not every expat holds the same intention and dedication toward the company, and the comments here proves my point. All the... read more

Why is this board so silent?

I see many views but nobody is posting. If I compare our board here with other large Oil and Gas companies we get just a tiny fraction of posts that they have? Is it cultural? Are we self-censoring?

It's just a job

Anyone who thinks that a company who reserves high performance ratings for Saudis only and has layoff programs for expats only is a company where you have a potential "career" is numb. It's a job. A job that requires you to do work for your Saudi... read more

Expats are mercenaries (like the Blackwater guys in the military).

Expats do almost all the work. Depending on where they are placed, some see lots of action, some don't. Expats gotta take care of themselves. Since the company provides no training opportunities, and no career prospect. When things go well, expats... read more
