Great benefits, good job opportunities, but some jobs are still being offshored to low cost areas of the world.

Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) Houston, TX

ProsAbsolutely one of the best benefits packages, not just in the energy sector, but overall. By far one of the best 401(k) programs - especially the company contribution after 9 years of service. In addition, still has a traditional pension program.

ConsGlobalization of the company has offshored a lot of the work impacting jobs of employees in "high cost zones (e.g. USA, UK, The Netherlands). The jobs have moved to low cost zones such as Malaysia, India, The Philippines, Brazil, etc.

Advice to Senior ManagementMaking decisions based on cost (and the expense and impact it will have on people and the workforce) alone may be great for the short-term, but you need to look at the 2-year, 5-year, 10-year and 20-year horizon. Can't afford to continue to be a reactive company with strong competitors out there such as ExxonMobil, Chevron, Total, etc. that are in a pro-actively leading position.
