    Pros

    Benefits, good pay, stability, lots of opportunities for inside transfer. RDO is a real plus. Some teams are very good to work on. Exciting projects. Company is very focused on your safety, it is actually a high priority and you are encouraged to get as much safety training as possible. Stable company with good underlying business plan. You can telecommute pretty often. You get a bunch of sick time, so much so, thats it nearly impossible to use it all.

    Cons

    Hours can be long, outdated technology, silos exist in some spots. Can be highly political at times and you need to steer clear of that. Some outdated technology exists and that can be a real pain. Alot of sites that you may need to travel to, some groups very difficult to interface with. Vacation time is accrued as you go, not in one lump sum. It is only 10 days. Number of paid holidays could be higher.

    Advice to Management

    Track closer to corporate goals. Talk alot, but real action is slow in coming.

    Pros

    Many of the technical folks are fantastic at their work and are good people. The employees who actually do the work are amont the best and brightest.

    Cons

    Senior management promotes a military-style bureaucracy, and are concerned with only with how much they can take from the company.

    Advice to Management

    Step aside and let caring folks who actually know the business take over. Your so-called "transformation" process has failed, and all the problems which transformation was supposed to fix have gotten worse.
