    Business Outlook


    Nimble, focused on capital discipline, good ESG focus for an oil company, and somewhat flexible working schedules. Overall compensation is competitive, pension is decent. Diversity a little lacking, but the culture is quite accepting


    Can be a little difficult to switch roles internally into a different discipline ie production to reservoir, facilities to drilling, etc. Not much diversity in terms of race, decent gender discipline considering talent pipeline.

      They spent most of the time asking about previous experience and how it would lead to me being a great employee for their company. I told them I felt like making the customers feel like they had a good transaction would be the best of what I had to offer.
