His/Her feelings about the company:

DSI Samson Group is an extra ordinary company not only because it implements extra ordinary business strategies but also it has extra ordinary HR practices which eventually keeps the Company above its competitors with high level of employee satisfaction and industrial relations.

Well experienced, very methodical, very much trusted team who accepts challenges very positively.

I want the company to think of me as one of the most important partners who cannot be replaced easily.

As I noticed DSI Samson Group believe that country is always first and I have seen situations where the Company gives second place to the business but first place to the country. DSI Samson Group drives it employees also to be responsible citizens who take care of their motherland.
