Great place to work, but senior management seems clueless

Geologist (Current Employee) Houston, TX

ProsGreat work-life balance, with on-site childcare, fitness facilities, and a soon-to-be-completed on-site medical clinic.
Great group of people to work with, team harmony is emphasized.
Genuine concern for employees, emphasis on diversity and inclusion.
Challenging work with opportunities for personal advancement, with a new-hire training program followed by a technical development program.
You will typically change roles every 3 years.
Transparent review process with supervisor.

ConsIt is a mystery how employee reviews translate to merit increases or bonuses, and the promotion process is slow.
Base salaries are not up to par with other companies, but you will be enticed with bonuses that don't seem to materialize.
Want to advance into management? Unless you are British, don't plan on it.
Don't expect an international assignment if you are based in Houston -- very GoM-centric.
While your role will change every few years, the process is nebulous.
In the subsurface, you will be expected to define your career path early.
Be prepared for perpetual reorganization.
Senior management seems inept.
Morale is low due to the Deepwater Horizon accident.

Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management always seems to find a way to screw things up, which doesn't inspire a lot of confidence. They are very reactive but need to be more proactive. They also need to value employees more and realize that salary does matter.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
