    Pros

    Great benefits, always willing to help out interns, field trips to oil sites, competitive pay, they treat their interns really well and provide them with housing if needed, MANY opportunities to grow and travel

    Cons

    Location, very hierarchical organization, communication is not always the best, oil became a more volatile industry, work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    Have less meetings and spend less time sweating over the small stuff and look at the bigger picture in terms of what needs to be done, instead of always getting approval from many managers before anything gets done. This delays the process a lot more.
