Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Programs (STEP) events that support community initatives Neutral compensation package (benefits are okay) You will learn some things from some seasoned experts Work/life balance (flexible work schedule) An independent buyer is considering buying the E&P company (hopefully they will be sharp and can recognize real talent)

Cons

Some members of senior management outright lie about initiatives or career advancement Most people belong to a clique and are very gossipy, mainly those who are not hard workers Processes are terribly flawed, Process Optimization is a joke Rewards are given with very little evidence of hard work Most experienced people are in cubicles while less experienced/lazy people are in offices Talented people are shoved aside while non-value add people push on through to promotions Too many levels of management in some areas.

Advice to Management

Recognize real talent when you see it. Don't continue to reward ass kissers and lazy folks.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Work Life Balance (Flex 40 hrs. work schedule 1/2 days off every Friday) Community Leader (encourages community work to help others in need) Laid back environment in some cases Benefits package is okay Good place to get your "feet wet" in learning Pipeline and/or E&P.

    Cons

    Diversity is not a big topic (minorities and women seem to be a non-issue) Promotions are scarce unless you belong to a clique' of managers Certain managers spend after hours with young recruits in bars and sporting events Certain managers are disrepectful to individuals if you don't play the game. Most managers are inexperienced rejects from other oil and gas companies, some will even pretend to fake their actual skills and qualifications to yield some authority. Dumping ground on people who are hardworkers; playground for lazy people.

    Advice to Management

    Change some of the managers out and stop with the created "layers" of management. There are 3-4 managers for one team (SCM in particular).

    Pros

    If you want to learn about the gas industry then get a job at a pipeline that trains you for months you will know more than schedulers who have worked for years.,

    Cons

    I think when its time for layoffs there is never a good way to do it but they could still learn alot about how not to stress everyone during the process.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, and remember just because someone is capable of doing more than most people remember they shouldnt have 3 xs as much work as everyone else or you will lose them.
