    Pros

    Working with great people with a shared desire to succeed above what we should have done given the modest size (for an oil company). Excellent salaries and benefits, lovely offices by the Thames.

    Cons

    The company was purchased by Shell and thus no longer exists.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately no longer relevant given that the company does not exist. However, a large number of BG employees are now with Shell where they are bringing some of BG's culture to their new colleagues.

    I have been working at BG Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    good people with a positive outlook, interesting projects, good safety culture, work with people from all over the world

    Cons

    No longer here (Shell take over), management had poor attitude to diversity and were a little too full of themselves

    diversity is a plus not a hindrance, be more open minded and a bit of honest humility wont hurt
