    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Ecopetrol S.A. full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, vacation packages based on career tenure and decent salary and bonus structure.

    Cons

    The start up purchasing department quickly grew but a lot of folks including me were not happy with the end result. The 'one person HR department here was the worst in all of my career history.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees questions and concerns. Be proactive in handling unjust situations carried out by your peers.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Ecopetrol S.A. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits for employee and family.

    Cons

    - No career development plan, if you want to grow you have to move to higher internal positions or to other companies, don't expect the company to promote you. - Performance assessment based on presence (long working hours) rather than actual work. - Managers confuse Leadership with Authority and Power (authoritarian style of management is very common). - Few learning opportunities of technical matters.

    Advice to Management

    - Don't value workers in terms of their presence but in terms of the work done. - Don't forget people have families (work is part of life, work isn't life).
