    Pros

    Good pay, many benefits such as travel, training, etc. Good safety culture (can be annoying but stil good)

    Cons

    Very rigid organizational structure. Conservative, obsessed with "company assets" e.g. don't use a company desk to do your own stuff during lunch time. And, they are one of the worst in the world environmentally, not just by the nature of their industry but they go for compliance and not beyond.

    Advice to Management

    This is the 21st Century: -Rethink how rigid everything is for employees -Change name to Imperial Renewables and get going with some alternative energy (natural gas doesn't count)


  2. Serious but stable

    Pros

    stable company with awesome cash position generally good people, if not a bit stifled lots of activity and future plans

    Cons

    root bound, older, serious, conservative people unwilling to try new things- the old way has been highly profitable forced ranking makes for unfairness, and the high flyers get the opportunity seriously over influenced by majority shareholder ExxonMobil- and they get all the good jobs

    Advice to Management

    Majority shareholder does not mean control Try to break out of the humdrum leadership style New generation feels smothered by needless checksheet Controls are good, but sometimes people need to be allowed to be creative Work life balance not existent for some people
