    Pros

    Great monetary compensation package and great retirement options and decent benefits

    Cons

    Very competitive, and often decisions are based on who you know. It's frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Put more effort in identifying the level of individual competency of your workers. Don't promote people on "because of who they know"

    Pros

    Good work life balance and decent pay with great opportunities to work on big complicating projects

    Cons

    A lot of red tape and to many chiefs that don't know what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    pick a direction and stick with it, stop changing the organization and prevent middle management from empire building. Loosen up on the specs that don't make sense.

    Pros

    lots of challenging work, difficult issues, intellectually stimulating types of situations to work on

    Cons

    poor management; cost-cutting is driving everything at the moment; they talk the talk but can't seem to walk the walk. people are too afraid of repercussions to say what they really think. the environment is becoming a bit toxic.

    Advice to Management

    start thinking about your people in more ways than just creating another silly D&I contest. Try honestly listening to feedback.

    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits. Nice facilities. Great work-life balance. As an introvert I loved working from home from time to time to enjoy the peace and productivity.

    Cons

    Poor management. Too much emphasis on "behaviors". Management values substandard work as long as those workers say the right things to the right people and play nice.

    Advice to Management

    Value technical skills and behaviors equally.

    Pros

    As a result of the Oil spill the company is struggling with costs and baseline operations, it may emerge as a renewed and changed organization. Competitive salaries.

    Cons

    Non inclusive, diversity is at the bottom of the agenda, promotions are only for US and UK nationals. Very bureaucratic, slow to react and implement change.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency should be at the top of the agenda. Merit should be taken into consideration for promotions and salary increases.
