    After 3 years, not great

    Geologist (Current Employee)

    ProsGood health insurance benefits and work-life balance

    ConsWay too bureaucratic! Hard work is not recognized, nor compensated. You must be liked by those in the 'inner circle' to progress, hardworking or not!

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you are considering making any progress whatsoever, start by removing all current managers, and revamping the whole management structure

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    If you are not from Spain, your career will go nowhere with Repsol.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) The Woodlands, TX

    Pros-Good for starting out in the industry, exposure to many different areas
    -Above average 401k
    -The Woodlands is a great place to work/live
    -Above average bonus

    Cons-EXTREMELY preferential to Spanish employees
    -Almost every manager/director in all departments is from Spain and all newly hired ones continue to come from Spain
    -Lack of communication between departments and even between groups
    -Below average salary
    -Very inefficient
    -Difficult to communicate with expats due to language barrier
    -VERY bureaucratic, takes way to long to accomplish simple things (getting a program installed/changing lightbulb)
    -Little to no career progression for US employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire and promote US employees for positions in the US office. The ratio of Spanish expats is WAY too high. All the management positions are filled by Spaniards, it looks very biased against US employees.

    They only hire contractors! If they decide to hire you as a full time employee is maybe, if your lucky is after 2 years

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWork wise the people were friendly, helpful
    Location was a plus to me

    ConsToo much politics, misleading, communication in the same department is bad (they will leave you out of the loop hole), Managers are very unprofessional, too much arguing & fighting between each department, if your from Spain they will cater to you otherwise one has no luck in progressing further

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop picking favorites, listen to your employees even the contractors (yes, they are real people & they should be also respected not treated like a no body)

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Horrible experience looking elsewhere

    Financial Analyst (Current Employee) The Woodlands, TX

    ProsLocation The Woodlands, luv it
    Beginner oil & gas experience

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to what can be done to keep teams together and working well

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Management positions ok, but wouldn't take anything lower

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) The Woodlands, TX

    ProsCompetitive employer contribution to 401(k) plan
    Above average health plan benefits
    Above average bonus compensation
    Training encouraged for performance reviews

    Cons3 years to be 100% vested in your 401(k) and if you leave before 3 years you lose all the employer contribution
    Performance reviews are biased towards those in headquarters (Spain)
    No fast track career movement, everyone is corralled into the same career progression which is slim to none
    Interdepartmental transfers are not allowed until after being in the same position for three years
    IT department is a mess
    Minimal paid vacation time

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to institute more of a meritocracy by promoting those that outperform more quickly.
