    I have been working at DP World full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Initial salary is good, no need to learn new technologies, onsite chances.

    Cons

    1. The IT department which develops and supports its own Terminal operating system software, uses ancient technologies and many manual processes, which are extremely complex and obsolete from the market now as well. 2. The developer is always under the threat. And he will be responsible for almost everything. 3. So called task owners and managers are working there for years and they are also outdated in terms of technology. In addition they don't intend to finish the task instead stretching it to the limits. 4. The office culture is like a school, you have to come at exact 8:30am and leave only after 6:30pm. And in between they have 2 hours of break (yes they do..) which is useless for the one who doesn't want it. You have to wear formals. No flexibility. 5. Micro management on employees, from the timings to your attitude. They have CCT cameras everywhere and extremely restricted internet access. And they can literally fire you if you clicked or installed any 3rd party software by mistake. 6. Hire and fire policy if you are a contractor. Even after 5-6 years of working you could be fired by saying "your performance is not good".

    I worked at DP World full-time

    Pros

    There’s nothing more satisfying than checking items off your to do list or leaving a hard day’s work feeling satisfied at the amount of stuff you were able to accomplish. Feeling productive is energizing and good for the soul. That’s one of the blessings and curses of working. We are blessed when things go well and we leave for the day feeling accomplished at what we were able to get done. On the other hand, it’s a curse in that when our day goes astray (which it often can) due to technology issues, work drama or something else, we don’t leave with that same feeling of productiveness. Having a small list of non-negotiable items to accomplish at the beginning of the work day is a great way to ensure a feeling of productiveness upon completion of your workday. End each day outlining a few tasks, that even if nothing else got done the next day, if those few things did then you’d consider your day a win. Then make sure that those are the things that you tackle first and give the majority of attention to the next day. Rinse, cycle and repeat.

    Cons

    the reporting requirements can be complex.
