Asst. Manager (Former Employee) - Abu Dhabi - June 3, 2020
Don`t even think to work in this company. You will just dragged even for your basic necessity.. Salary - date changes every month sometime credited after months... are with certain attitude as of you are working as their servants.. knowledge less too.. ..they too have issues with visa issuing..you can take rest instead of wasting your time and energy in this company
I advice all candidates not to apply or to work in this horrible company, they have block from ministry of labors and they can’t issue Residence visa for new employees and also for old employees some of them are working with a visit visa and this is illegal, plus all of that they have a huge delay in releasing salaries up to 4 month , Although I got a lot of promises that salary will be released maximum by 40 or 50 days ..
It's my first time to work overseas and I have some mix emotion on working there.Excitement and eagerness. I learned a lot as far as steel works are concern. I've learn how to use MIG weld and some workshop machine there.
I've learned how to mingle with other Nationalities. The management are good to work with. It is a fun place to work. The toughest part of being in the industry is that when I entered Citiscape I have no idea how the business works, I have to adjust a lot since I came from a food industry before. Eventually I was able to cope up and learned the flows.
All around aside from being a cadd operator, we usually go out to visit some site inspections and meet clients and suppliers whenever required.
The people are very friendly plus the fact that most of the employees there are Filipinos that is why the culture is somehow reminiscent of the workplace here in the Philippines.
Manage Business relations and development in addition to:
- Business strategies and forecasting.
- Financial planning and forecasting.
- Projects management and Planning.
- Negotiation and contract closing.
i learned a lot and gained a lot of experience in landscaping, a lot of nationalities to make friends with and get to know , not having Saturdays off what the difficult part , jumping from one project to another and between design and shop drawing and preparing letters and RFI's and leading a team of draftsmen.
good place to start the day in the morning, learned how to interact with different nationalities and how to communicate, learned to maintain documents in the site and manage the team without the boss. The management is good but salary is not given on time. The hardest part of the job is maximizing the time for all the things that needs to be done in one day. The most enjoyable part is working with the team eventhough we have long hours of duty.
Being a Sr. System Administrator of Citiscape Corporate Headquarter is quiet a big challenge and yet a rewarding experience. Supporting around 100 users in the corporate office with more than 10 project site offices, 2 branch offices in UAE and a branch office in Saudi and Qatar. We have an ERP for Accounting, Inventory, Project Costing and Retail module which is being used on all the segments of the company. I have one support staff for the corporate headquarter which supports the entire UAE operations including it's 2 other branch office in UAE and more than 10 site offices, 1 IT Staff in Qatar and 2 IT Staff in Saudi.
I started my day by checking company email, taking the backup tape of the ERP into the secure vault, run system checks on all servers and provided the needed it support for corporate staff and then I will be heading to visit the site offices. After that, I will go back to the corporate office and do some routine system check or provide IT support to staff who have requested it.
My day normally starts at work is I could say i use a list that lines in priority of the task's to complete with a time scale added to act as my motivation. This only should show that i know how to prioritize things.
At work, I think one of the most important things I've learned is determination. Not to give up too soon, because the solution is probably right in front of me.
I work closely with the Engineers, Supervisor and others. During a stressful time, working on a project with a deadline of submissions, the entire team usually works well together with a positive result.
Lastly, the most enjoyable part of the job is when after stressful and hardest time, we are still manage to smile and enjoy each other’s at work.
