    Pros

    Very positive thinking, bright individuals. Never did I feel like the smartest person in a room. People are pushing you to become better. Huge opportunities to grow within organization.

    Cons

    There is not such thing as a 9/80 here folks. It's part of the culture. They are understanding though, and do recognize when there is an emergency. They are pretty flexible.

    Pros

    Good work environment. Most coworkers seem to care about what they are doing. Some interesting challenges are offered from time to time that are good learning experiences.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't always seem to understand what is happening at the ground level. They make decisions on some ideal assumption and then wonder why things don't work out.

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to all of the employees and product lines. Be more willing to take suggestion from the everyday guys, they have a ton of interesting perspectives which may change you business approach.

    Pros

    Great balance between work and life, lots of opportunities for professional development and learning, applying your knowledge at work and propose new, better ways of doing things

    Cons

    There's certain amount of politics at the work place, which I consider normal in a company this big (+ 20.000 employees). Other than that, I don't have any other cons to add at this point in time

    Advice to Management

    How to retain talent talent is key for creating sustainable development within certain division where turnover rates might be a little higher than what it would be considered as "normal" within an oil & gas service company

    Pros

    Strong community; Ongoing opportunities for motivated employees

    Rapid growth which outpaces behavior; Constant flux in leadership

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing in bringing on fresh talent with out-of-industry experience. Your ability to adopt a 21st century outlook on how to attract, manage and retain top talent will be your savior or your demise.
