Pros

Great company if you're interested in international travel and assignments. Heavy resource investment (people, dollars) in R&D. Even though its a global company there is a focus on building a community of experts and sharing best practices etc.

Cons

Highly matrixed structure makes it difficult to figure who to go to for a decision. Tendancy to act first with very little planning - very much shoot, ready aim. Constant reorganizations have created less rather than more accountability.

    Pros

    employees are treated with respect,
    sharing of knowledge,
    employees have freedom to discuss about new ideas,
    scope for decent promotion

    Cons

    highly respectful but political environment,
    management is comprised of a group of people who will not allow others to reach their level
    as you move up, company expects you to be working 7 days a week even from home

    Advice to Management

    decisions about company should be clearly communicated to other employees. Managers are expected to work 7 days a week even from their homes and it can be really exhaustive............


  2. Its a good company to work for.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to grow your career because its a big group.
    Lots of training related to your work.
    Good company policies e.g. HSE Health, Safety & Environment

    Cons

    Expected to be working all the time as you go up the management ladder.
    Lower than average salaries in the industry it belongs.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employees to have more balance between work and family.
    Adjust salaries to be higher than average in the industry it belongs.
