    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Fair compensation and bonuses for employees. Progressive IT environment The "Business" Management is well run, and progressive, and intune with their markets.

    Cons

    Outsourcing Nightmare Need more depth in IT laison roles between company and outsourcer. US vs Them. Ex-Pat US employees play second fiddle to UK, for key decision issues.

    Advice to Management

    They should retain more veteran/lead employees as liaisons to outsourcers. Implement "regional" not all encompassing global outsourcing agreements. This each IT department the OPTION of outsourcing, and if so, they can more finely tune the candidates to their specific requirements and skill sets. One size across the enterprise does not fit all.
