Company Culture

The place where I was working had so much potential, but too many Managers with employees caught in the middle!

Support from management

Came in spurts with mandatory training that came down.

Teamwork

teamwork was only authorized when it made certain people look good, any other ideas were dismissed.

Freedom to work independently

Got a lot better in the end once you were giving actual clear guidance and direction.

Internal Communication

There was the Obvious Secret Circle. Information is power and very few wanted to share...

Gender Equality

Historically there were many females in a certain leadership position for more than 10 years, and when no other female applied and a male applied, the position was suddenly 'unnecessary'.

Attitude towards older colleagues

There was a good 'Face' put on but the rumor mill destroyed reputations.

Career Development

You could only go as far as your Supervisor or Manager wanted you to go, which was right where your already are.

Overall compensation for your work

Decent pay and benefits.

Office / Work Environment

Hostile Work Environment, plain and simple. Which showed by massive turnover rate.

Environmental Friendliness

Good & Bad

Work-Life Balance

NONE

Company Image

A well played Charade

Job Security

The dark cloud of unemployment was always looming over your head, giving the contract way of life.

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes

Workplace Safety

Good as can be expected in the circumstances.

Challenging Work

Yes! Awesome experience, ability to learn things under pressure and always some new challenge to work out.

Inclusive / Diverse

Minorities work for much less, so you figure it out...

Suggestions for improvement

  • Vectrus/K-BOSSS/MWR Arifjan, is way too top heavy with managers. Whereas one manager could run an entire northern or southern MWR, all of a sudden they needed One Manager Per Department?

What I like about the company

Working for the Service members in my specialty field.

What I dislike about the company

Waste, Fraud & Abuse that goes unchecked.

Company Culture

The culture was to 'Defend Revenue At All Costs' and if that meant cutting corners... Not to mention the amount of Waste, Fraud and Abuse taking advantage of Gov't money was staggering! Just Google: Camp Arifjan Fraud

Support from management

The Management Team had it's good managers and bad managers, they kinda balanced each other out... sorta...

Teamwork

Teamwork was great while dealing with people at your own level, Managers don't want to hear from the lower pay grades...

Freedom to work independently

This was hit and miss and mostly miss!

Internal Communication

Internal communication happened usually when something went wrong and that's when you would get a visit from the Boss. Other than that, you would never see them!

Gender Equality

No! One Example; The MWR Arifjan had a history of all female Aquatic Supervisors and when this one guy who had been there for years, fully qualified went for the position, they then deemed the position 'Unnecessary'

Career Development

Only mandatory classes by Gov't, unless you were a part of the 'Diversity' you were not getting any higher training.

Overall compensation for your work

Only because of Kuwait Labor law & Absolutely no chance of raise.

Office / Work Environment

If you like working out of a shed in the Kuwait heat...

Environmental Friendliness

Actually really good, but could use some more staff for crying out loud!

Work-Life Balance

Absolutely None because every department is short staffed BELOW Gov't regulations and yet it still happens...

Company Image

There's been a lot of Apple Polishing!

Job Security

It's Cut-Throat!

Workplace Safety

Good program, good people just not enough staff1

Challenging Work

There was Always a challenge to tackle and that made the job interesting!

Inclusive / Diverse

Only because diversity means 'cheaper labor' and that is the bottom line.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Purge The Management Team! WAY Too Many Chiefs!

What I like about the company

Working for the Service members!

What I dislike about the company

The 'Vision' is there! But desperate managers who have dirt on someone make it very difficult for everyone!
