    Needs a complete shake up of all corporate services - at the moment this is a black hole.

    Former Employee - Manager in London, England (UK)
    Former Employee - Manager in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Tullow Oil full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    No processes in place so people have the autonomy and freedom to get on with things. Great if you employ people who know what they're doing and have some drive; wasted on some of the dead weight that have been at Tullow for years and have no passion for what they do.

    Cons

    Some of the corporate services, such as HR and IT, are very toxic environments to work in, especially at the top. People getting bullied and HR are usually in on it. Perhaps this is better outside of London, but in the corporate office I wouldn't recommend anyone working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes to what's going on outside of Exploration. You need to get rid of people who cling on to their jobs because of the attractive share options they received a few years ago but who deliver very little. In order to do that, you need an intelligent, unbiased way to assess performance. What you have in place is a joke.

    I worked at Tullow Oil full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    An operational organisation that seems to work and deliver

    Cons

    A corporate organisation now trying to catch up with the organisation. A flat organisation that no one takes charge of, hence moving through treacle

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time for a change at the top to reflect the maturing nature of the organisation and its culture.
