I have been working at Linn Energy (More than 5 years)
Great work environment, work life balance and benefits. CEO is driven and thorough at informing employees about LINN's current state and future forecast.
IT Department leadership. No clear direction, no objectives, no real innovative thinking and technical leadership skills. Zero talent for the new hires being acquired that are hired for who they know and not what they know. Top Heavy, overly inflated salaries, sign on bonuses and corruption.
Advice to Management
Keep cleaning house
I applied through my university's online career system. I was invited to a dinner with the company the night before my interview, and had some good conversations with their engineers and listened to a presentation about their history and culture. I really like how they assigned seating at the dinner so the engineers were fairly spread out and all of the interviewees had an engineer to talk to. The interview wasn't particularly difficult. They asked me questions based on their values. (Ex. One of their values is take action and act with a sense of urgency, so they asked me about a time that I did that.) The one thing I found a bit frustrating is that they took over a month to get back to me and tell me that I didn't receive an offer.
