This article investigates managerial problems in Kuwait. A total of 762 managers participated in the study. Managers perceived that the most important problems are: primacy of personal relationships over work relationships, favoritism and personal loyalty at work, subjectivity in evaluation and promotion, unwillingness to shoulder responsibilities, multiplicity of rules and regulations, rigid and obsolete administrative systems and policies, and influence of cliques in the workplace. No significant results were found between expatriates and nationals in their perception of managerial problems. Implications for policymakers, senior Kuwaiti managers, and multinational corporations were provided.
