People at Wateen Got Multiple Bonuses and Increments

Wateen employees after tough time last year, when they had to wait for weeks for their salaries, are relieved with up to 6 bonuses and 25 percent increment in salaries, across the board. This is quite a news for industry in current situation.

We know that Wateen has grabbed good funding through IPO and recovery from telecom operators from home and abroad.

During the recession, this is going to boost the morale of workforce. We are not sure about any major expansion plans, but for sure Wateen is going to give tough time to competition, with good cash in hands.

    Wateen – A parasite, surviving on the basis of group companies.

  • Good news and we should expect improvement in service level offered by Wateen Employees

  • Margin_Pressure

    I doubt this information is true for the following reasons:

    1. Wateen IPO hasn’t actually happened. The Information memorandum has been making its rounds but I don’t believe it has actually IPOed.

    2. The IPO is for a mere 2BN rupees while the company’s debt level over 200M dollars. Interest on that debt is simply staggering.

    Wateen should *right about now* desperately looking for a buyer like its older brother Warid.

    i am an employee of wateen since 2.5 years. this news is totally wrong and reflecting false aspects. theres no doubt that salaries has increased but its only 5% not 25%. the bonuses are announced and will be given in form of wateen shares and will be handed after a year. majority of the employees at wateen are not happy with this decision
