Interesting subject matter, smart and passionate colleagues. People below management are generally on the younger side, which is nice if you're young too.
Colleagues a little stiff/serious for my liking, can be demanding (true of any job), hours can be long.
Advice to Management
As others have noted: the split between the oil group and the gas group doesn't make sense. It's weird to share office space and never interact - almost to the point of being separate companies. I worked on the oil side and I never even knew the names of the most of people working in the gas group.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PFC Energy (Washington, DC).
Email, Phone Interview, In-Person Interview. They were very unprepared and changed things up last minute. I found most of the staff to be very likeable but seemed that they had just made things up on the spot for the interview. All in all glad I went through the process, but was offended that they gave signals of an offer then declined later. This firm doesn't have a proper HR department so is very ill prepared and seems as if they are all new to their positions, even their managers. Also, seemed like there were people from top DC schools doing work they were not trained in, once again seeming like they need some real work on recruiting and finding top talent. In the end, got a better job and glad I didn't get into this place.
