We used to be on the same team

I wish we could go back to the way things were. We used to be on the same team. Now it’s nothing but animosity and I don’t see the reason for it. Within aviation, the Saudis are great. Someone mentioned their skills and attitude and I have to agree... read more

Slow trickle of layoffs

A few in layoffs trickling in still, power systems and some finance.... I guess trying not call attention to it. Seems, ARAMCO still not recovering. I am sure someone will debate this with unjustified enthusiasm.

Who will get affected by the Layoff?

It will hit those departments that have been taken into JV's - onshore and offshore, with all other associated areas. Time they hit areas of housing, training and HR, as add no real value with most of finance being left till after IPO. Makes sense to... 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

Very deep cuts this week

Yesterday very deep cuts across the western payrolls were restarted. At least 60 families. This is supposed to continue through the end of the month (rest of the week).

Life Decision - Aramco

Well folks thought I would put it out there. I am looking at taking a job with Saudi Aramco. Currently working in O&G in Aus for a reputable oil and gas major. Thing is there are too many arse lickers where I currently am (not that they wont be at... read more


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.


Huge group of people leaving anyway at the end of the school year. Going to be hard to find a moving company before August or so.

Midra expats

It appears that Midra expats are on the chopping block for the next major wave.
