I have been working at Cairn Energy

Pros

Till date there are excellent opportunities available for skill enhancements with on the job and inhouse and outside training opportunities for all technical employees.

Cons

Pathetic work envoronment with no transparency and favourites securing all the promotions and better pay rise. Plagiarism rules and honest workers are never recognised.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Organisation is bleeding profusely, so look after honest workers otherwise organisation will be left with sycophants.

    I worked at Cairn Energy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    CEO was very inclusive.
    Wins were celebrated together.
    Engineers & field workers were given autonomy to make decisions even if they were wrong.
    Largely a can do attitude without too much constraint to procedures as being sacrosanct

    Cons

    Some of the less able corporate types promoted ahead of the can-do engineers
    The culture was becoming more self important at senior management level with Indian success
    Some of the top engineers both geophysical & drilling moved on
    Not sure if the current CEO has the ability to follow the previous CEO

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As the ex CEO would have said - You are only as good as your last game.
    Cairn - your last game was Greenland. It was a 3-0 defeat.
    Your last cup final was the Indian sale to Vedanta - it went to extra time, then extra extra time. Its not clear to the fans which side won but it might have been the referee in the shape of the Indian Government.
    Make sure you value your engineers and try and retain the knowledge within the company
