Pros

The total package of compensation, respect of my peers, recognition by my management, quality of my staff, and the overall support of my work group makes this better than any other job I've had since entering the workforce over 30 years ago.

Cons

Foreign company ownership is a downside because they have a different set of priorities. More global thinking, where if were allowed to spend the way we see fit, the US protion of our business would be more profitable. Currently, we help support other companies, in other countries, that are struggling to be in business.

Advice to Management

Continue to listen to your direct reports; we're on the frontlines of our business, and want to be your eyes and ears.

    Pros

    Work life balance. Flexible working schedule, pay, Growth opportunities, Expat opportunities. Nice work schedule for employees with special needs. Work from home is also constantly utilized by everyone.

    Cons

    Limited long term goals. Highly business oriented without long term planning. Bureaucracy is impeding working efficiency. IT is terrible. IT suppport is rather bureaucratic due to limited use of unlocked PCs. Oil price fluctuates volitily and business follows as well. Big projects can get cancelled with days of notice, transparancy is limited to most employees. Information flow is not optimal. Company reports are difficult to search and people are not encouraged to write reports. R&D budget is 100% dependent on the business side not on the needs of R&D skill developement.

    Advice to Management

    Implementation is not in sync with vision.
