The company as open to innovation and readily adopts latest technology. I love the fact that I am a part of a team that market reliable, high quality products and has a global client base. As a result, I get to travel gulf, specially to the K.S.A. But on site travel is completely dependent on your project and clients location. Mine is a ksa based client and they have some offices in riyadh, hence I got a visa quickly. Another plus point is that my colleagues come from various cultural backgrounds, and we work happily in collaboration.

Dislikes

Compensation is decent, but growth is slow. The work pressure is very high. Sometimes, I have to work 10-14 hours straight in a day as I have to attend client calls in the evening and sometimes late into the after evening. I do receive appreciation emails from my client, but my manager mostly go unnoticed during my mid year appraisals. Also, there is no on-job training for freshers, hence senior folks like me have to guide them step-by-step, which is a pain sometimes.

Work

General speaking, my work is challenging as I have to look after the entire construction safety and distribution life cycle as well as manage day-to-day yield operations. Pitching fir my company as a safety officer gets tiring and the task is slightly rep

Initially I was taken up by the Chairman of the Company and his smooth talk. He has a lot of contacts in the Oman Government and would flaunt and use them.

Dislikes

The Company has no systems or established procedures. The don't even issue salary slips. When I tried to introduce systems the Chairman would stall and never implemented them.
I found that the Chairman had a reputation for cheating a lot of persons and going in for shady deals. He owed a lot of money to the banks and lost cases in the Court.
He had recruited a lot of Indian and Pakistani labour, He sacked them and did not pay them their wages.
As MD I had objected and resigned so did our British GM. Since we too were not paid our dues we filed cases in the Courts of Law.
I strongly advise not to apply for any jobs and join his dubious companies.

Work

I had bagged a huge contract for Oilfield infrastructure to be completed in 5 months with a profit margin of over 35%. With the profits he paid of his debts.

First of all when all of us seek for a job we look on the environment and profession teammates are like everyone is completing the other and attends to help always. Alfanar is well reputable company in Saudi Arabia, Morover has many successful accomplishments in constructions of power and water. Further more it’s one of the high ranked companies in this field.
Finally to sum it up my experience in alfanar overall was a plus for me.

Dislikes

I haven’t disliked or faced a problem while working.

The company is open to innovation and adopts latest technology.i love the fact that I am a member of a Alfanar gruop.this will produce high quality products and has a global market.

Dislikes

Compensation is excellent, but growth is very slow. No value of hardworking and work pressure is no.inal.managers do not value an individual's unique strengths, which is why I have to take back my suggestions most of the times.
