    Pros

    Wonderful place to work, nice people. Leadership was good. Process oriented. Not the best pay in Houston but great benefits.

    Cons

    Decisions shouldn't take as long as they do to be made; some managers didn't care to collaborate with others to make the system work well. Not the best pay in Houston but great benefits.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    Good Corporate Culture ( Statoil Value), Emphasis on Work/Life Balance, Promote either leadership or technical role for career advancement

    Cons

    In progress to develop better accounting team, need more experienced staffs, necessary to promote the positive relationship amount different teams

    Advice to Management

    In late 2014, IT professional was promoted as Global team leader to manage accounting teams such as Joint Venture, Treasury, Process improvement and Direct Tax. We were initially excited to see this unordinary arrangement as we believed the accounting team would be benefited from his IT project management. After 6 months of the management, we were extremely disappointed. He totally lacks of communication skill, management skills and accounting knowledge. But most importantly, his action has negative impacts on our team performance. Please gather opinions from different team members at Statoil (Business, team lead and his direct reports) to evaluate his qualification. I am not here to complaint but just urge to have a proper and fair judgment on his contribution to the team. For Statoil value, people @ Statoil should speak up to express the truth. It will benefit Statoil in the long run and also help the Global team Leader transform to be a better manager in the accounting field or find a better position to fit his qualification.

    Pros

    Relaxed environment Excellent training Company has many places to work for You can change your division, as much as you want

    Cons

    Progress in positions could be slow Not a great place to start if you would like to have fast growing progress Number of trainings per year is little

    Advice to Management

    Please trust young engineers for high responsibility tasks. Increase number of trainings, make it more intensive. Trust performance and development more than your HR and budget. It worked for Exxon, Chevron and Schlumberger, it would definitely work for Statoil.

    Pros

    Process driven ensures the decision making process is structured and not ad hoc High quality colleagues - very capable and professional Working environment is very positive / healthy The opportunity for travel as part of work. Norwegian culture is embedded into Statoil.

    Cons

    Building a wide consensus and dealing with process can slow progress Absence of leadership in developing projects that are cost competitive Statoil advertises a wide array of development possibilities - however accessing these opportunities can be difficult

    Advice to Management

    Statoil needs to focus developing a competitive market oriented culture in terms of project costs, no longer can Statoil rely on their dominant position in Norway and active support by the Norwegian government through fiscal policy in the transition towards a truly global company.
