Current Employee - Drilling Engineer
Current Employee - Drilling Engineer

I have been working at Statoil

Pros

Excellent pay, one of the highest starting salaries in the oil industry
High level of respect between coworkers, very ethical and high moral standards
Excellent training, both regarding the drilling field and general management
Large amount of freedom to do extra training modules that are not requisite of the position

Cons

very strict rules, often good, but at times overbearing, such as not being able to work longer than specified work week without asking permission to work overtime.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Really can not think of much feedback, as I'm very happy with the company and work, only potential improvement would be in making it easier for junior employees to obtain international positions.

    Current Employee - Chief Cook and Bottle Washer  in  Norway, MI
    Current Employee - Chief Cook and Bottle Washer in Norway, MI

    I have been working at Statoil full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good work life balance, flexible schedule, chance to play big role in projects

    Cons

    Actively practice discrimination against non-Norwegians. Norwegians get the easiest jobs, easiest hours, best projects, most resources and best ratings. All of this from a company and country that believes it is the most fair minded of them all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better lawyers as once the real word gets out, you will be sued out of your pants.
