    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Competitive benefits package. Depending on the location and position, there are opportunities to obtain invaluable experience in oil and energy industries.

    Cons

    Human Resources is into everything, they practically run the place. Pay and pay raises are sub par with industry standards.

    Advice to Management

    Do not allow human resources to dictate how departments are ran. Get rid of the Oracle database, or find something new that actually works.
