High intensity work environment yet fun and very passionate atmosphere
Assistant Brand Manager (Former Employee) – Dubai, DU – July 13, 2014
A typical day at FC would revolve around doing our day to day operational work in the mornings, followed by planning and following up on previous or current campaigns. Everyday is different in the FMCG world as you can receive insights in one day and start planning NPD the next.
Management are very passionate about personal issues and overtime and they appreciate the work being done. My boss once told me "You worked the weekend, so take a day off". I never took that day, but the fact that they offered, i appreciated it and it gave me more motivation to add value.
Works are great, diversified and very helpful.
The hardest part of the job was the last minute request from upper management, where i felt the task was unachievable, yet i successfully completed it.
Whats enjoyable are the celebrations of all religions, the ping pong and foozball table. The free work lunches provided were appreciated too.
Free lunches, ping pong, foozball
Long hours, working weekends, extensive travels to KSA
