    Former Intern - Control Systems Analyst in Porsgrunn (Norway)

    I worked at Statoil as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Big company, new challenges, be a part of something important. In my case I was lucky enough to work on something new and challenging.

    Cons

    Since the company is big and partially owned by the Norwegian State, there's a lot of bureaucracy that sometimes can slow down processes and create problems where there are not.

    I have been working at Statoil full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Statoil

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
