GCC level of work ethics are beyond me. I still cannot understand the politics here. It is nationalistic or ethnic but not related to the betterment of the organizations. Vendors control supply chain and technology. New technologies are hard to come by. Everything requires a meeting. Then the meeting requires another meeting.
New ideas need to be pitched with certain carrots otherwise they will be shot down.
The philosophy is “don’t change it if it works, don’t replace it as the vendor is well settled here or don’t change it as non of ur coworkers know the new tech”
