    Bad values in values-focused company

    Chief Cook and Bottle Washer (Current Employee) Norway, MI

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

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

    Great benefits, mediocre operations

    Senior Analyst (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGood salary, great other compensation if you're around long enough to be vested. Great insurance and other benefits. Flexible work schedule, generally decent work/life balance and enjoyable atmosphere to work in.

    ConsLack of leadership in the US area, and some questionable decisions on who they've placed in certain job roles. Recent change to overall corporate growth strategy has created some uncertainty, although ultimately could be good for the company. If you're not Norwegian there's little opportunity for advancement. They're currently outsourcing some job areas so it's difficult to recommend that anyone leave a job they're happy with to come here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDecide on a clear strategy for the company, specifically the US, and put the right people in place to accomplish that vision in the right manner.

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

    Phenomenal company to work for!

    Senior Executive Assistant (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGreat salary and benefits they p ay 100% of all medical and dental insurance at the PPO level. They also offer insurance for elderly parents through MetLife, it is awesome insurance and a very low cost. They also are a very family conscienous company. They get exactly what work life balance means.

    ConsNot much room for growth and development

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to create opportunities for advancement and growth.

    Great Company incompetent people

    Senior Accountant (Former Employee)

    ProsSalary, Bonus, Insurance, 50% discount at the café, way too many team building events with less work, way too laid back

    Consopen plan office, too noisy, no professionalism, lazy employees, no accountability, management/ managers and leaders close their eyes, too much of favoritism, gossips, ill treating contractors, rude behavior.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNorway executive management to make employees accountable in achieving results. Get rid of lazy employees sitting and wasting their time. Many show up late, keep track of them.

    Great on paper, pretty good in practice

    Senior Analyst (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGood salary and benefits. Work / life balance also good.

    ConsDon't treat people as well as lofty "corporate values" would have you believe. If you are not an engineer or scientist type, you are really a second class citizen here.
