    Pros

    Professional work atmosphere. Amount of team support given on a project is pretty good. If you are in the "club" you could get to work all over the world.

    Cons

    So far the employees are professional and overall intelligent. However the expectations are very high and often times unrealistic, leading to large amounts of stressful situations. Advancement for younger employees is often times controlled by managers with not much experience in managing people. When you first start working they will start determining the highest you will ever move up in the company, which makes it hard to break some preconceived mold they put you in.

    Advice to Management

    Never stop investing in your employees, and always give raises, which often times are the only way to know for sure if you are Doing a good job or not. Be more open with your teams and less of an elite attitude toward others would go a long way toward relationship building.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great Job security
    OK benefits (no spouse or children life insurance offered)
    Nice fringe benefits (discounted gas card) ;-)
    Employee opportunities across several different disciplines

    Cons

    This company is an oil/energy company...not a technology company. However, several management personnel are not very knowledge about the departments they manage, and not to fault them, many simply don't have the time to investigate because they too are so occupied completing tasks that should otherwise be automated. The level of bureaucracy is ridiculous and is an extreme hinderance at job task completion. There are a select few managers that are extremely good and have great ideas for IT change, however they face an uphill battle.

    Advice to Management

    (IT department) Please recognize the importance of change and not be so resistance to it. So many daily routine tasks can be so simply automated in a safe and secure manner which will save time and money, in addition to improving employee morale in that they will be freed up to work on actual job related tasks instead of paperwork. Please listen more to the front line employees and be open to change.
