HR ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  OmanJune 16, 2019
It was a very wonderful experience working with. Since it was my first job I have learned how a corporate world works, learned to work independently and to finish my task before it means the deadline. Management was really awesome and all my managers were always available for support. The workplace culture was well organised and everything was done in a systematic way.

Role in Saud Bahwan Group envisaged operational responsibility, advisory to Chairman (owner) and developing strategy for future.
Sr General Manager, Head - Chairman's Office (Former Employee) –  MuscatSeptember 8, 2017
With diverse businesses in Saud Bahwan Group and with some interdependence on certain key resources within the businesses in Group made me always analyse the issues/possible decisions from the overall Group's interest perspective and long term even if some of them were going not in for of some business or the other.

Although the Group was more than 40 years old with a lot of professionals, many policies across HR were not in line with the modern management practice. This gave me a lot of opportunity to work on and develop.

A typical day for me was to look at the performance report of different businesses, making insightful comments for Chairman's attention while at the same time providing feedback to the business concerned, arriving at resolution on resource constraints, discussing on new developmental project (in IT, workshops, manpower etc.).

To get the business heads to see things differently in 'out of the box' thinking mode was extremely difficult, however I learnt it to do with enormous patience and persuasion. At times, faced difficult situation to impress upon the Chairman on the need of keeping the morale of employees high with equitable/level playing and fair policies which may have some short term costs.

Large organization with pocketed work culture.
Senior Executive- Spare parts (Current Employee) –  MuscatAugust 16, 2017
Saud Bahwan group has a glorious past , the fruits of which the current management is reaping.
Professionalism is limited depending on the department you are associated with. Departments work more in a pocketed environment making employee job satisfaction much lower.
Pros
Large and established Organization
Cons
Low employee morale or growth

Country Head (Current Employee) –  MuscatJune 27, 2017
An empire built by the founder Chairman from scratch, the company has always taken care of its employees.

an open culture with varied exposure given to right employees.

Even with a lot of limitations being put on compensations / benefits in the name of cost cuttings due to the current turbulent period, still one of the most desired companies to work with.
