Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Great cafeteria - free drinks and fruit provided upstairs in the work area.

Cons

Zero help from associates, since everyone there is a contractor and there is zero input and guidance given by management, who are gone 99% of the time in meetings. I felt thrown to the wolves.

Advice to Management

Give more guidance and provide more leadership, don't disappear for days and weeks on end and expect stellar results. Work with your contractors and be available to answer questions. Give more examples of the kind of deliverable you expect. Communicate more.

    Pros

    Good people, trying to do the right thing, global work opportunities on some of the largest and most challenging problems in the industry

    Cons

    Unfair press coverage, pay levels are average for the industry, large company decision making process, high HR turnover, too many staff people and insufficient line people

    Advice to Management

    Continue to simplify the organization, stay the course but continue to de-risk the portfolio, identify and promote managers who are trying to do the right thing

    Pros

    Just started but colleagues are really willing to help out to better understand the process and great opportunities to apply technical skills. Compensation is also very great and managers are people friendly. 9/80 option is also available.

    Cons

    All i could see for now is too much processes which could be more emphasized due to the GoM incident.

    Advice to Management

    Will give when i have enough opportunites to understand the processes.
