    Pros

    Good salary, great other compensation if you're around long enough to be vested. Great insurance and other benefits. Flexible work schedule, generally decent work/life balance and enjoyable atmosphere to work in.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership in the US area, and some questionable decisions on who they've placed in certain job roles. Recent change to overall corporate growth strategy has created some uncertainty, although ultimately could be good for the company. If you're not Norwegian there's little opportunity for advancement. They're currently outsourcing some job areas so it's difficult to recommend that anyone leave a job they're happy with to come here.

    Advice to Management

    Decide on a clear strategy for the company, specifically the US, and put the right people in place to accomplish that vision in the right manner.

    Benefits, half price meals, open culture, 9/80 schedule

    minimal chance of full time job offer

    Hire more through intern pools and make the internship program tailormade for transition to full time hire

    Pros

    Benefits, 9/80 work schedule, subsidized meals

    Cons

    Career growth is tied to Norwegian culture, which is very flat & socialistic.

    Advice to Management

    Less expats more locals....locals are a lot cheaper and more knowledgeable.

    Pros

    Great camp, shifts and travel arrangement.
    Management is really understanding, great HR department

    Cons

    Not that much room for new employment if you are just starting a career. Road to the plant can get a bit sloppy when heavy rain.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, maybe a little bit more honesty on whether or not there are opening available at the end of work terms.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, although bonus is not attractive. Good working environment and quite stable employment. Proud of high ethical standards regarding environment and social responsibility.

    Cons

    Highly politicized and lack of performance driven is a cultural barrier to execute its strategy. Truly openness to deal with real issues is missing.

    Advice to Management

    Strategic directions need faster and better execution.

    Pros

    The Work-Life balance is great, but this is common in Norway. Compensation and Benefit are good for young engineers. Very nice people and environment, everybody willing to collaborate and help.

    Cons

    Compensation and benefit for experienced professionals is below industry average. Norwegian is the language.
    Top Management positions are almost only for Norwegians
    If you are not proactive is very easy to get bored and feel unsatisfied with your job (many people do as less as possible)
