    Pros

    Low cost of living
    Good if you are a few years before retirement and want a final few years of pay check

    Non-Germans with massive experience not involved as they are seen as a threat to status quo in HQ
    Share your opinion at your peril (bonus cut) in HQ
    Internal mafia at HQ

    Current Employee - Instrument Supervisor in Tripoli (Libya)

    I have been working at Wintershall full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    first you got to work for month in the field, then you go for the same period as a field break " vacation" which is paid, also you got the medical treatment insurance, so you you are not paying anything for your treatment, neither your family, and a really up-to-date work stuff, which is a really good experience you will get out here.

    Cons

    Sometimes they are strict with employees who like having the speed limit out, because we don't drive more than 85 Kmph.
    They might complain when you got to leave when you have a really important thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise in Salaries, more Long term courses, courses in Canada or USA are better than anywhere else.
