I worked at Maersk Oil full-time (more than a year)

Pros

37 hours a week working hours and you can have flexible hours either come in late or early. If you are an international hired based in Copenhagen it will have more diverse people and great option of lunch menus (which is deductable from your salary). If you are an international hired based in Esbjerg than it will be the same as living in an oilfield campbase.

Cons

Before you decided to join, please considered for the 5th time because it will be a career suicide. Most of my international colleague decided not to put their time in this company as part of their resume.
if you joined the company as international hired (or what they said expat) you still have to pay tax. Company does not pay for your medical or dental the country does and you better prepare to get in stuck with Danish medical system.
Organisation is just to confuse to understand and no clear accountability or responsibility between department or business partners. Job description can be wide or it is only stating about activity per year without a clear understanding for goals. Project execution is weak in term of outcome quality, time deliverance and cost effectiveness (i.e. I have never seen an oil company that does not planned vs actual charts for drilling and completion day to day operation).
SAP implementation is the worst things that happened. instead of build SAP around the business it is the other way around to built business around the SAP.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I understand that this company comes from shipping line but shipping line culture does not suits the challanges and dynamic of oilfield. Organisational changes and process implementation has to be driven from top to bottom. SAP is a good tools for SCM and finance, but only for those 2 functions.

    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

    Current Employee - Petrophysicist in Copenhagen (Denmark)

    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.
