    Pros

    There are some professionals with a long experience at the company from you can learn. The company scale implies a lot of Engineering projects at all time, which offers a great opportunity to learn O&G related technical skills. The HQ facilities are magnificent. In the beginning is exciting.

    Cons

    A lot of change in management in about a little more than a decade and the last nationalization, corporate culture has changed so many times to the point that now it's negative or even non-existent. Being the major company of a country, there is a very conditioning tacit belief that there's nothing "out there".

    Advice to Management

    The company would do better by creating a more dynamic enviroment, with clearer politics determining rewards/ punishments. Also more international/ senior management exposure would be great

    Pros

    Old professionals with a long experience at the company are great. It's an outstanding place to learn O&G related technical skills. The HQ facilities are magnificent. In the beginning is exciting.

    Cons

    With six management in about a little more than a decade and the last nationalization, corporate culture has changed so many times to the point that now it's negative or even non-existent. Don't expect work-life balance at all. Being the major company of a country, there is a very conditioning tacit belief that there's nothing "out there". No training. Promotions and benefits are based on favoritism. The company it's not suited for those unwilling to put most of their energy on facetime and internal corporate politics. Current and future situation are absolutely related to national politics.

    Pros

    Insider knowledge of the trade, fast paced training, great working environment. Work presents constant challenges, provides a platform for self management and evaluates individual performance.

    Cons

    Long hours, but not much else to complain about. Commuting takes forever, but that is certainly not the company's fault.

    Advice to Management

    Promote international specialization courses.

  6. Disorganised company which doesn't care about its employees at al
