I'm keen to found a platform to share my experience of working abroad here in Muscat Oman. Galfar Engineering and contracting Saog is a well reputed firm over here, I like company's policies such as re-hire and safety ensuring environment . Higher management introduce these policies to got appreciation and to maintain healthy environment. But due to lack of hard work of staff and to implementation of these policies gets wrong effect on the organisation's image. Staff who specially deals with lower level work force they haven't motivation skills just working with coercion strategy.

Dislikes

Part of management who deals with workers on sites and in plant unit just threats workers and use only coercion strategy they haven't enough motivation skills , somewhere they promotes their relatives at good places Managerial staff in transportation unit doesn't rotate workforce into different sites and locations for example some drivers working in nearby plant staff's supervision and gets decent incentives on the other side some of talented and experienced working under coercion strategy. Some of site supervisors gets money or wine (stop barberry policy is just in hordings) to write good incentives on time cards. Free food's quality is just like to serve for animals not for human beings and noone is here to control the subcontractor.So it's a joint mixture of good n bad experience.

Work

Working Just under coercion strategy, supervisors threat workers not for company's benefit for their bonus only . doesn't compensats according to conditions.

Work pressure is moderate as compare to Indian company & Galfar treat every staff in a very well manner. Accommodation & fooding arrangement is very good in every project/head office.

Dislikes

Kerala staff is majority . hence, language problem at work place. Staff use Malayalam rather than English most of the time. Growth is slow.

Work

challenging job as my role was contracts & costing. Senior level management meeting is very frequent, hence has to be prepared all time to convince management.

Company is good. There was a south indian culture before so that south indians who leave their mother country wont have to worry about language , food and even about work. Now a days the culture got changed to North indian styles and hence the overall outcome turns to northern cultures.

Dislikes

Lack of opportunities for learning.
