    Pros

    You'll gain more knowledge from their training than anywhere else. More opportunities to move around in the company

    Cons

    If you can't follow policy or safety rules then it's not the place for you. It is a lot of time away from home.

    Advice to Management

    The hiring process from the recruiters never emailing back and the NEO is like cattle being pushed from one field to the next. They have so much required training to get you through that your personal stuff is pushed aside like benefits, payroll, specific job details and etc. They only spend a few minutes on that and two weeks of certifications. You'll have to do the research and work to figure out the best options on benefits or call around to figure out where to be or what is next during training. The material is great but it's 50 people at a time with different positions and they don't spend much time on individual issues. It's just mass certification and training.

    Pros

    Lots of training available, multitude of opportunities to move around, especially if you're willing to live abroad. They were good to me as they had decent benefits.

    Cons

    Huge organization, so your voice is often not heard. Things move very slowly, so to avoid frustration, best career path is to change jobs every 2 to 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your individual employees are saying, or else you'll continue to lose them to the competition.
