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

    Pros

    Exceptional good return of the time you invest there if you just close your eyes to the dysfunctional way the company operates, and continue to sing along the combmaja.

    Cons

    Leave opinions of your own, past experience and common sense at the doorstep. This a company that is not in the business of making money. They buy assets, run them poorly to the ground, write off the losses and then claim victory. The deception is so grand and the marketing effort so ingrained in all messaging from the top and down that everything you thing you knew about economics in the rest of the world will be tested and proven to not apply for this company. The loves losing money and do it for all of their foreign operations.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making alternative truths about how great you are. 30 billion loss in North America without consequences for upper management is just pure incompetence in business supported by a great marketing machinery.

    Pros

    Good benefits, health insurance, some colleagues were great but they are all gone now.

    Cons

    Unattractive workplace for highly competent people. Managers and executives are superficial and it appears that they have no intention to make money.
    Instead they talk like advertising professionals and make false statements. Integrity is lacking in the professional workplace. Without solid executives and managers this place does not have any vision.

    Advice to Management

    You need to have top notch go getters in executive and managerial positions. The ones who have in depth oil and gas experience and who can steer the course of the company in a good direction

    Pros

    Originally an amazing place to work. Many of the people are solid individuals.

    Cons

    Values and culture have deteriorated. With their US Onshore business they have continued to make poor decision after poor decision where now they will never recover. Investors should run.

    Advice to Management

    Make logical decisions

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. Nice environment to work, nice offices, nice facilities.

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy, too many meetings, too many meetings, and more meetings... Managers had pressure to do a lot of admin work, they were so busy that didn't have time to guide you, help you in other technical things, and you felt left aside. Work is demanding, you have to do a lot of things and nobody cares to motivate you, very individualistic environment. Apparently in the headquarters in Norway was better.

    Advice to Management

    Motivate more your employees, but not with team building meetings where, ok we can have a good time for a couple of hours, but the reality at work is that as individuals we don't feel motivated to do a better job; you demand always more like what we do is not enough.

    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.

    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.
