    Pros

    competitive compensation, good work-life balance

    Cons

    old school thought process, lots of growing pains

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    perhaps a review of management by employees, maybe more standard ways of doing things - can sometimes be a high school popularity contest

    Pros

    They pay decently and have all the nice toys for an IT dept. It's oil & gas so there's always money to be made and the profit margins can still be higher than most other industries even in bad times.

    Cons

    Worked there for 6 weeks and never got access to a single application to work with. Employees are way overextended and they're not doing a very effective job remedying that. Extreme lack of effective leadership and delegation of authority resulting in major bottlenecks for many different issues.

    Benefits are mediocre by oil & gas standards.

    They have no problem spending/wasting money but they're not doing it in a way that provides any legitimate benefit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compare your spending on IT projects to your peers and consider if you're getting any sort of bang for you buck since from what I say, you're not.

    Doesn't Recommend
