    I worked at Woodside Petroleum full-time


    Looks good on CV, a very good stepping stone. Also a lot of perks and freebies. Depending on the line manager, some of the training is good.


    Schoolyard bullying - it i like you never left school. Also, not much experience is left there. "Senior" engineers are made senior depending how well they fit with their line managers. It is literally a children's campaign. No much support, overworked and pushed to a corner most of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Quit and let someone else more capable to take over - look what you reign over; would you like to be your own employee?
