    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at BG Group for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Strong belief in work life balance and segregation of responsibilities between engineering and operational support staff. There were multiple opportunities to improve processes or tools and any attempt at taking ownership of issues and their resolutions were met with positive feedback.

    Cons

    I experienced multiple instances of leadership encouraging vendors and contractors to set forth 3-5 year roadmaps for technologies with regard to internal project roll outs with no due diligence on management's part. This caused issues with duplicate and solutions being implemented resulting in wasted effort and capital.

    Advice to Management

    Senior leadership positioned in the UK make it challenging to align goals and work through more regional issues in the Americas and APAC region.

    I have been working at BG Group for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some of the people are the best you'll ever meet. There's free soft drinks and coffee. Downtown location

    Cons

    Open concept... you have to be a VP to get an office with a door. They stopped paying for parking for contractors and then fired all the contractors.

    Advice to Management

    Are there any of you left? CEO got fired (new one hasn't started yet).... 3 executives went off to run other companies, two recent ones jumped ship.. you can't get any of the brass from UK to come to Houston... all the projects are on hold or slowing down. I guess my advice is to get out while you can!
