Pros

- Egos don't get in the way - just get the job done and you'll be rewarded well. Everyone strives to do the 'right thing'. Good culture. - Very, very few micro-managers- - the flip side is that you better be able to function without a lot of guidance. - Lots of opportunities - if you are willing to move around. - Focus was on employees - now more focus directed toward shareholders and stock price is going up! It makes those stock awards worth something! - VP in Denver is top notch.

Cons

- Depending on your reporting structure, you may have a great manager, or a very untrained front-line manager. - Management does not dictate what has to be done.... and so even the simplest changes are driven from the bottom up. This makes universally adopted change very difficult.

Advice to Management

L-E-A-D by example. Tighten your belts and walk the walk. Don't forget the original set of values!

    Pros

    I guess if you are looking for experience you could chalk up some years but not necessarily GOOD experience for future opportunities in a real oil and gas company.

    Cons

    Too cliquish. People often promoted based on friendship or echoing what management wants to hear rather than leadership skills or knowledge. More like high school than a business.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in new management from the top down.

    Good People, strong market presence

    Cons

    Lack of solid direction and ability to manage their business ethically

    Advice to Management

    If you restructure don't promote individuals who should have been let go.
