    I have been working at Statoil full-time

    Pros

    WLB - Excellent! Benefits - Excellent! Company ethics, efforts, R&D, - Excellent!

    Cons

    GBS - Management don't care for experienced and hard working employees. Management keeps tab specifically on hard working employees.. Late comers continue their traits, management keeps their eyes closed while screwing honest employees. No departments, lacks SOD, Treasury does procurement and JV functions. Financial Services bombards Revenue and JV. Too much of compliance talk. Keeps ripping people off left and right. The leader lacks management skills, need a definite change there.

    Advice to Management

    Norway, please look into it ASAP. Hire efficient leaders who are selfless and constantly mentor employees. Help to clear hostile environment. Statoil is such a great company, please help to keep the morale of hardworking employees.

    Great Company and culture that lives and breathes their values in everything they do. Canada has all the support & systems of a large International Company, while still maintaining the positive culture of a smaller Company in Canada.

    Not enough experience in Oil Sands, their expertise is in offshore.
