Pros

Provide detailed information regarding the contract with the company.

Cons

As a contractor in an oil and gas company via Air Energi, it is difficult to grow professionally. I wanted to find other contract work in the oil and gas field and discussed with Air Energi my concern and it took about a month for them to respond back with potential offers.

Advice to Management

Didn't really interface with upper management.

    Pros

    Their commission scheme is good for recruiters. They have a presence worldwide and good name recognition. Long history means that there is a lot of institutional knowledge to take advantage of. There are some exceptional people there.

    Cons

    Far too many middle managers, many of whom have been very effective recruiters and team leaders but then promoted out of those roles and into positions as full-time spreadsheet managers. The obsession with forecasting, driven by the VC owners, occupies far too much of their time and that of their teams.

    For too many people the way to progress up the ladder (and earn a stake in the company) is to stop producing value directly and become a bureaucrat. Some of them are necessary but the balance has shifted too far. This impacts the more junior staff as they emulate that and aspire to it.

    The stated "Core Values" are trumpeted loudly and then abandoned wherever it's deemed necessary.

    Advice to Management

    You have too many layers between you and a true picture of what is happening at your company. The reports and forecasts that you get have been passed through multiple filters of bias and self-interest. You have too many people scrapping with their colleagues for credit rather than looking outward at how they can improve the growth of the company.

    Pros

    Great people with a real can do attitude. Excellent Client relationships encompassing most of the key players in the Oil and Gas industry. Their Global Mobility capabilities are second to none. Probably not as well know as they should be for consultancy, as their knowledge of the market, understanding of projects and global mobility capabilities are what really set them apart in the Oil and Gas Manpower sector.

    Cons

    They have grown very quickly over the last few years, and processes and procures have had to evolve at quite a speed to meet the needs of rapid growth. This can be a challenge for those that don't embrace change. Knowledge transfer across the Group is catching up.

    Advice to Management

    The market is becoming increasingly competative, more so now than ever. Continue to invest in people development as well as business development and ensure employees understand the strategic direction of the business. Focus on Client relationships and set challenging, but realistic budgets.
