      Lack of Direction and Lack of Competence in US

      Pros

      -Great Benefits -Less Conservative thinking than other US Oil -US has relatively small group so you have the opportunity to get to know many people. -The core Norwegian company seems to a very nice company to work for. -The company is working towards the future of energy.

      Cons

      There seems to be a lack of direction and competence in the US. Its hard to say what the requirements of a leader is in US. Specially in Production, Royalty, and Revenue Accounting group, there seems to be a focus on pushing certain people through the ranks. The more competent leaders were always passed up. The leaders hardly ever knew the work of the people they're leading. A huge disconnect. Also, the leaders are always changing. A political employee makes it much further than a competent one, here. I got promised a promotion and it didn't happen despite many non-competent employees making significantly more. They showed me what they valied so I volunteered to be severed.

      Pros

      Umm, I got a paycheck?

      Cons

      Layoffs under the guise of “reorgs” are non stop. As soon as one is over they announce the next. This company presents to care about the mental health of employees, but will drag out the layoff process to squeeze as much productivity as they can. There are always fires to put out and projects that require all hands on deck. Management prefers the fast rout instead of the accurate one. Often requiring people to re-do things over and over again. Management at all levels lack competence and integrity. All while using arbitrary measures to fluff numbers. My former “leader” destroyed and entire department and sold PowerPoints full of lies to achieve their career goal. When the truth of the matter is if you sell off enough assets, of course you can make the numbers look good. They spent years and years on unnecessary projects to become a “leading operator” only to abandon that initiative. Primarily because upper management wouldn’t listen to employees who often told them processes, projects, and systems weren’t feasible. If I could give this place zero stars I would. It’s a shell of its former glory days.

      Pathetic managers running the onshore unit

      Jan 13, 2021 - Engineer 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      It is a paycheck. Conservative covid rules. Office-based workers have been WFH for 10 months.

      Cons

      Where do I start? There is no fixing of the onshore business, please just sell and end everyone’s misery. The managers’ only question to layoff was whether they could keep their bonus. None of them cared about their employees or the company, just trying to milk this cow for as long as they could. This is a place where managers have tenure. I have yet to see one manager that was laid off. Some of the smart ones volunteered, but no manager was ever laid off. NONE. Now you see how this 1000 people company could have 200 “leaders” but have no clue why it does not make any money. Major workforce reduction in the same unit three years in a row. And each process ran for 8 months. Layoff process is a blackbox. Remember to befriend HR. Never mind your boss, they don’t call the shots, it’s the HR people you have to suck up to. It is a toxic environment. Managers have no clue, continue ask for the impossible. Backstabbing, stealing work credit, artificial political correctness - if you don’t check any diversity box, good luck. People are consumed by the politics. Not until I was out, I realized how emotionally draining it was. Even without a job, I now sleep better. I wasted years of my life constantly worried when the sword will fall, and suffered emotionally in a toxic environment, I could not be happier to leave it all behind.

      Cons

      Equinor US has been through so many reorganizations that it is soul draining. There are too many individuals that don't actually work but do a good job at presenting during meetings. In addition I've noticed that in general there is a certain "profile" they are looking for - that was very clear in the Austin office. Equinor has so much "trust" in employees that they look away even when they know a certain individual disappear for hours at a time and even gets promoted!

      Leading on pride and power trips

      Mar 26, 2021 - Engineer 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Benefits were great. Work week hours were flexible. Work/Personal life balance was good.

      Cons

      Management/Leadership was narrow minded. They talked a good game but never executed effectively. Took for granted experienced onshore drillers/exploration staff and not let them direct the operation. Instead they had people that wanted to be in leadership and knew less about drilling/exploration to TRY and lead the operations. The reason they bought the US onshore asset was because the previous company knew how to drill for oil and make money at it. That all changed because people wanted big roles instead of allowing the people that knew how to do it, run it. And now it cost them. Being prideful does not pay. And forget moving around in job roles unless you believe the way they do, and follow their cadence.
