    I worked at Equinor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary and good benefits. Health insurance.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. Extremely fickle, slow in decision making, incompetent leaders who have no knowledge of oil and gas business.

    Advice to Management

    Your executives are a joke. Stop sending your leaders from Norway who are extremely naive, incompetent, have no idea who is taking them and the company for a ride. Hire solid managers who are experienced, dynamic and who can make bold decisions. Almost no diversity in terms of people who can stand up for their beliefs.

    I have been working at Equinor full-time

    Pros

    Nice place with good people

    Cons

    They are si focused on working lean with less and less people, they are overbearing, and have unreasonable expectations. They support unexperianced managment and dont correct them. They cut benefits and left no incentive for this method.

    Advice to Management

    Before you have a toxic environment, I would definitely get in front of how your managers are treating your employees before it's a risk to the company if not already.

    I worked at Equinor full-time

    Pros

    There are some great people still working for the company. Pension Plan day 1 of employment. Long Term Incentive pay for roles that are valued.

    Cons

    Too many changes to the organization. The culture and values has changed dramatically. People don't seem to matter anymore and company becoming robotic with its treatment of personnel. Name change - if you are treating your people equitable, you don't have to change your name to demonstrate that you are "Equi." Career opportunities are now only for the early career or "talents."

    Advice to Management

    Get back to caring about the one thing that matters most - your people of all ages.

    I have been working at Equinor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Equinor (Statoil) is an excellent company. The company is deeply into the Scandinavian principles of equality and responsibility. Equinor is environmentally and socially very responsible. The senior management has been with the company for a long time and exhibit a sense of belonging and well being for the company and its employees. They are very committed and are not afraid to make bold commitments to the share holders and stakeholders. They are usually ahead of the pack when it comes to carbon efficiency and seeing early weak signals. The rather conservative approach in decision making works to ensure stability and sustainable growth in the long run. All in all, its a fantastic company to work for where you will learn a lot of good working principles. Generally, colleagues and coworkers are very friendly as well.

    Cons

    The company does a very poor job in hiring mid-level managers. The management is eager to make changes for the greater good, however, the changes take too long to implement and become effective. Barely when things start working, they shakeup things again and take months sometimes years to implement them. Although this is an international company, there is a still a lot of emphasis on Norwegian leadership globally - which can be a good thing if right leaders are moved around; but not always the case. The leaders often fail to offer clear and concise feedback to employees and this results in mediocrity in the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Implement changes at a better pace; fix mid-layer of ineffective leadership; make the company truly global by diversifying the work force both in Norway and internationally.

    We used to have health insurance premiums paid for but as of 2018 we now pay health insurance premiums.

    Advice to Management

    Let's bring back the wonderful health insurance we used to have!

    Pros

    Once you're in the door, you're in.

    Cons

    Lack of diversity the company seems to blind to.

    Advice to Management

    Every year, there is an absolute lack of racial diversity in the group of interns. I guess the recruiting can't find any black interns?
