Wealth Adviser (Former Employee) –  DubaiDecember 15, 2018
Micro managing all employees, no room for growth or creativity, credit is never given to the owner of the achievement, under paid in all ways and managers are not up to the level of professionalism.

Learning & Growth Prospective
Learning Technology Specialist (Current Employee) –  DubaiNovember 25, 2018
I joined DAMAC one year ago, and it has been an extremely positive experience for me professionally and financially. DAMAC Properties is an organization which provides endless opportunities for anyone looking to either just start off or grow their career path to take to the next level. What I admire the most is the humble and indiscriminative work culture. It is a combination of a friendly, easy-going atmosphere and driven by energetic, passionate and hardworking people who are always willing to help and offer their support. Working at DAMAC will constantly give you new learning opportunities which you can take with you anywhere you go and easily apply it. I recommend DAMAC for anyone who is goal-oriented, result driven, and enjoys fast-paced and exciting work environment.
Pros
Fast Paced, Growth prospects
Cons
Long working hours

Unstable Work Environment
Senior Engineer - Planning Manager (Current Employee) –  DubaiSeptember 1, 2018
DAMAC properties a big name in the market of real state in Dubai, but actually the environment of the work is very bad, where the HR trying to trap the employees during the initial stages of the employment.
The work environment based on keep away from the problems, and there is no system for upgrading the employees even if the employee serve the company for many and many years.
The arm twisting procedure the normal procedure of negotiation in addition to the totally unsecured place for work, where the employee could be terminated in any time for any reason.

Third Class Working environment
Property Consultant - Real Estate Investments (Former Employee) –  DubaiJuly 18, 2018
- Have never been in such crazy place ever in my life
- 800 sales team just imagine for handful of projects why would some one need such big sales force shows the aggression of non performance of company
- Hire and fire policy
- no fixed working hours
- Over time is not paid its free so you are a slave to company
- They have 3 sales office and they keep shuffling your working place first within the team, then floor , then sales offices so in the entire work span you will be carrying your own computers from one place to another on your own
- Managers treat you pathetic, you will always be treated like a liability and not a asset to the company
- Only negative motivation which leaves you in stress all the time
- Every day once you will hear the Line by your Manager " You will be terminated"
- SO a wise person should avoid this place and work in a decent professional environment.
