Great living area and many recreational activities
Personal Swimming Instructor (Current Employee) –  Ash Sharqīyah10 June 2018
Saudi Aramco is a truly great place to work. The compound has many recreational activities that include swimming pools, tennis courts, basketball courts, volleyball courts, soccer fields, and everything else. The work hours are great and the community there is all friendly with eachother. You will never have to go home and work extra, you will almost never deal with rude people, and you will always feel like Aramco is home regardless of how far you are from home.

Totally work orientated with no relaxation activities
SITE SUPERINTENDENT (LEAD ENGINEER of PMT) (Current Employee) –  Ash Sharqīyah16 February 2018
Typical day at work:
As per job duties description
What you have learned:
Learning is continuous and e-learning additional training is available to increase knowledge
Management:
As I am the strongest construction manager, I am stretched to the limit by management to cover additional requirements to ensure deadlines are met.
Workplace culture:
As an expat in this country and their type of cultural attitude, it is sometimes frustrating.
Hardest part of the job:
Constant training and handling of contractor's responsibilities (micro-management) due to low skilled personnel.
The most enjoyable part of the:
The authority of my position that enables me to intervene where mistakes are made and to replace incompetent personnel when person does not follow guidelines and instructions. Also the intervention when contractor lacks to expedite vendor activities and material procurement.
Pros
Job position authority
Cons
12 hour working schedule 6 days a week

Saudi Aramco
Subject Matter Expert (PMOD) (Former Employee) –  Ash Sharqīyah15 January 2018
This review is written from the perspective a foreign expatriate worker.
Pay and benefits are excellent, best I've ever seen, work environment is close to home, accommodating and non-stressful.

However, do not expect to advance in salary or position, ever. These roles are given to local nationals. Furthermore, there is no support for personal professional growth or education. Also the work ethic at the company is extremely poor, with as little getting done as possible. With some exceptions, management is very unconcerned with getting things done or supporting those who do.

Family support is outstanding, the schools are excellent, with small class sizes and great support from staff. Shopping can be challenging due to soon to ease driving restrictions, lack of physical address', prayer times 5x a day closing businesses.

The opportunity to travel and see this part of the world is wonderful.
Pros
travel, lifestyle, pay, benefits
Cons
security, lack of advancement, religious restrictions

This is one of the best company to work. If they treat expat and local in same manner, it would be fantastic. Camps are very good and the individual development had been given adequate importance.

Very isolated demanding job
Field Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Demon13 September 2017
Supervising drilling operations learning how to communicate with none english speaking workers. The management micro managed to a over board extent but in general very professional. The workplace consisted of several different ethnics very interesting but the language was the hardest part to over come. The fact of being able to work in another country learning there ways was the enjoyable part.
Pros
Paid to travel and see different cultures
Cons
Isolation and away from family

Saudi Aramco is company that provide policies and standards to help benifit the company and its employees.
Asst. Shops Planner II (Current Employee) –  Ras Tanura, Saudi Arabia14 August 2017
Work in Saudi Aramco can be sometimes worth enjoying and on the other hand sometimes stressful. But at the end of the day you get to have the time to enjoy and relax with all sorts of amenities that it provides its employees. Moreover, here in Aramco they value the importance of family time which is what I like most about the company.

Good income, but poor management
Process Engineer (Former Employee) –  Ras Tanura, S0411 January 2016
Saudi Aramco offers you a lot of money and benefits, otherwise why one should move to KSA, one of the most boring places all over the world?
Bureaucracy is monstruous, but they help you a lot.
What I dislike completely is their job organization and people care. They can give you an assignment and you ask for some review. They can tell you each time is ok, but at the end it'll be told you it is not good enough.
Pros
house provided, free medical insurance and transportation
Cons
living in KSA could be hard, bureaucracy, poor communication and management
