    Pros

    Very good salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Inexperienced management that look only to their own careers. Locals treated as second class employees.

    Advice to Management

    Actually live the values with your reports. Lead others instead of focusing on your own careers.

    Pros

    Salaries and benefits Friendly co-workers; Open communication Great company for Norwegians or if you just want to comfortable work place until retirement. It is not a good company for international staff who are ambitious and want to have a successful career

    Cons

    Extremely micro managed. Most decisions are made in Norway though head quarter doesn't understand how to run business in the US or onshore. No real growth potentials for international staff. Most senior positions are continuously filled by Norwegians, even in positions where local should have advantages (e.g. Government and Public Affairs) Disciplines with least diversity/globalization are Drilling & Wells and Finance

    Advice to Management

    If the Company is as serious in globalization as top management says, they should be HUMBLE (one of the company's Values) to recognize that they need international talents to make the company a successful global company. Stop using North America as a training ground for Corporate's favorite kids. Less focus on politics and more focus on performance in your decisions

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Friendly work environment. Work life balance in General is OK, except for Quarterly close.

    Cons

    GBS USA revenue accounting is lead by an incompetent Lead (i.e. No revenue accounting knowledge or experience). Lead's her newly appointed Team Leads are incompetent as well. Screaming at team members are the norm for the three of them. Abundance of false information is used against the team as well.

    Advice to Management

    Review your choice in Revenue Accounting lead.

    Pros

    Good work life balance, flexible schedule, chance to play big role in projects

    Cons

    Actively practice discrimination against non-Norwegians. Norwegians get the easiest jobs, easiest hours, best projects, most resources and best ratings. All of this from a company and country that believes it is the most fair minded of them all.

    Advice to Management

    Get better lawyers as once the real word gets out, you will be sued out of your pants.

    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.
