    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Statoil full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work -life balance. Considering how little I am expected to deliver, compensation is high. Really nice people. A great place for people who have lots of children and look for a relaxing day in the office after a tiring evening at home.

    Cons

    Too laid back and unprofessional. The biggest challenge is that Statoil doesn't seem to know what it wants or what it wants to be. Too political and complex to navigate for an international employee. The meeting culture is really weird and extreme - too many meetings with no agenda or outcomes. You will be challenged and frustrated by the lack of a structured career path and slow career progress. If you are not Norwegian and an engineer your career progress will disappoint you and your learning curve and competitiveness runs a real risk stagnation. Your experience before Statoil will not be valued - it's how long you've been with the company that matters and who you know. Competence and performance are not valued or promoted. Salary levels are lower than industry average (think about 30% for commercial roles) and the situation I described above with all the risks it entails just makes it a no no if you are far from retirement. If you still need a breather form a hectic life and work under a U.S. or U.K. contract, suggest you slap a 30% - 50% risk premium on whatever salary you are thinking of negotiating.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to say what you want and work on your communication skills. Challenge yourself to gain more awareness of the world outside Norway and the markets you operate and sell in.
