I have been working at Maersk Oil full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Medium sized company (compared to large O&G operators) with important assets to manage and develop, load of challenges to overcome and improvements to work on for the benefits of all, strong culture helping personal development

Cons

Lack of processes and quite an important workload for those who have the envy to make a difference.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Industry good practice to be adhered to

    I have been working at Maersk Oil full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    First of all the main office for all corporate activity as well as all Danish North Sea activity is located in Copenhagen. From a life/work point of view working in the heart of Copenhagen with easy access to pretty much everything is a huge plus.
    You have the full range of the petrophysical discipline presented here, from heavy modelling to operational work to core analysis work.
    Also you are given, at least in most units, almost full autonomy as long as you reach your deadlines.

    Cons

    From a local point of view the pay is quite a bit lower than average indutry salaries and expat posistions are quite limited.
    Unfortunatly management has imbraced, fully with no sorting, the PMP and everything that encompasses, meaning work is slowing down quite a bit.

    Hold senior managers accountable, promote true leadership to make things done not for the sake of process
