Adventurous and very 'real' with loads of scope to get things done .
Great job. I had a superb time as Head of Security for Dukhan and the Western side of the country (GSS-1). Lots of scope to get on with what needed to be done and to innovate without interference.,

A challenging and interesting environment with a lot of development going on in the field and in the township, I enjoyed it thoroughly. The department had been in a bit of a mess prior to my arrival and so the challenge of getting it back on it's feet was very rewarding and I was given superb support from the security element at HQ in almost every respect.


Living and working in the relatively small township with a high profile and recognisable role like mine could be difficult at times and needs managing carefully, there is nowhere to run and hide.


Operationally the senior managers I dealt with were excellent, supportive, intelligent and professionally very switched on however the senior echelons of 'corporate' management at HQ in Doha appeared bureaucratic, aloof, out of touch and rather cold. I decided it was best to get on with the good stuff in Dukhan, keep my head down and work with my 130 staff to get the job done. QP is definitely a place where you are measured by results rather than rhetoric.


All in all it was a great life, very good money a super environment for fishing, sailing, beach parties and barbecues. But you have to be a certain sort of person to fit in, it wouldn't suit everybody.

Spend good time while learning
Interesting and Multicultural workplace
During a typical work week, one of my biggest tasks is checking in on my staff and assessing their progress on various projects. first day of the week, I like to meet to discuss our priorities for the week, then meet again in the middle of the week to check progress, and meet once at the end of the week to discuss goal setting for the next week. I meet with smaller groups of my staff during the middle of the week to troubleshoot any issues. Along with constant interaction with my team, I also attend a weekly board meeting where I present my department’s progress to the executive board.

Productive and friendly workplace
I extremely enjoyed working at Qatar Petroleum. My day used to start at 6:30 in the morning and finish at 2:30 in the afternoon with flexible hours and cooperative management and supervisors.
I learned how to deal with customers (candidates) and was happy to give them all the support needed through out all the recruitment process.

Qatar Petroleum is a multinational company, so I delt with different nationalities and cultures which enhanced my experience and my communication skills.

Challenging environment due to nature of business
Company was an international investment company, focusing on energy investments. The company was a start-up and I started the Internal Audit function.

The staff were all supportive and the business was divided in three main streams, upstream, downstream and gas business. An investment department supported all three divisions.


The challenge in the department was to align the audit function to the core business and its strategy.


There was no risk management function and I started the process by obtaining buy-in and appreciation for establishing it as a separate function.
Pros
Significant exposure to audit new investments
Cons
as start-up, processes were still in progress of refinememt

The best seven years of my life
A very friendly and happy environment, team work and very productive. Learned the true meaning of team work and support. Management was very professional and absolutely outstanding. A diversity of nationalities made it even easier to work with, having different cultures join our team providing us with their own set of experience always added a great value to the job place. It was a lot of work, meetings and milestones which always gave a good sense of challenge. Productivity, happiness and comfort is all I can say about the greatest seven years of my life that I spent with this magnificent organization ..
Pros
Team work, productivity and experience
Cons
absolutely nothing

Challenging and multicultural. Need multi skilled and dedicated to work employees
meet with subordinates and distribute the workday assignments followed by a meeting with contractors' representatives for the purpose of on time completion of various tasks covering catering, cleaning, pest control, and transport.
Site visits to different buildings and open areas of industrial city.

Have company offered lunch buffet. Complete and update related Excel spreadsheets necessary for report writing.

Arrange for my daily meeting with manager to review performance of provided site services for Qatar Petroleum and other LNG operating companies.

The job required top time and resource management skills. The work place culture was unique in the sense that thousands of Europeans, Asians, Arabs, ...etc were gathered in one industrial city.

The hardest part was to do menu planning for different nationalities and in high volumes( 22,000) meals/day from seven restaurants.

The most enjoyable part was to succeed in all challenges.
Pros
free education of three kids at Doha College run by British Embassy
Cons
Long hours without overtime pay. No overtime pay for senior staff.

Culture and Etiquette in Qatar
I have no regrets working in Qatar for almost 10 years.

Being a Muslim country, local traditions and practices still prevail and foreigners are expected to be considerate of the culture. Commercial Bank is happy to share a few tips on culture and etiquette as you make Qatar your home.


Doha is a safe, family-friendly place to live, with a low incidence of violent crime. Single women don’t need to be particularly concerned when moving around the city late at night. However, common sense always applies. In turn, public drunkenness, obscenities, lewd hand gestures and public displays of affection, can land you in serious trouble.

Excellent Job responsibilities and environment.
The Project was challenging to complete the FEED on Fast Track.

The Project was kept under hold suddenly and my ambition to work on the Project was not achieved.

The Team should have been mobolized after the project is firmed up.

Leaving a Job and taking up new assignment and project getting cancelled is very disappointing.
Pros
Good working environment
Cons
Job Not Stable

Good Remuneration package
Good Remuneration package but job security is low and no room for career growth and improvement. Nevertheless, no work and life balance and too much politics.
