    Pros

    Strong organization, respected throughout the industry. New leadership really focused on taking things from good to great. Very exciting

    Cons

    The oil and gas industry is facing very challenging times with such low prices for oil. I hope top management will be able to execute changes inspite of the dire situation our industry is in.

    Pros

    The organization pays well with good benefits.

    Cons

    The mission. Who wants to support the petroleum industry. No personal connection with the mission...but it beats unemployment. experiencing many challenges with growth resulting in a lot of turnover and instability. Poor communication. Leadership focused on cutting costs mean lower ranking employees are understaffed and overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in staff...provide more growth opportunities.

    I have been working at API (American Petroleum Institute) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay, benefits, and flexible work schedule. Great co-workers that will step up, and help when needed.

    Cons

    If your not with the "in crowd", your done. Management is top heavy, and some of the most recent hires (upper management), are clueless or just nasty. Low moral went from select departments to company wide.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees. If management proves to be a liability, stop sweeping it under the rug. There is a reason why people are leaving! You may want to add a voting button for employees to rate the new V.P. for the GIS Department.

    Management is OK. It is a little bit top heavy though. there cold be some slimming the middle management ranks.
