    I worked at Equinor full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Dress code in the Austin office is non existent, you could dress like a scumbag every day and you'd fit right in. Shorts and tshirts are common so enjoy that. Some of the field folks were alright.

    Cons

    This place was one of the most backwards, unorganized jobs I've ever had. I had a two year commitment to them and I left the day after 2 years. I don't think I would have made it two years if not for the handcuffs they had on me. Good luck getting anywhere if you aren't Norwegian or a descendant of Brigham The company slogan is "Do more with less". Most of their big pay benefits are on a timescale of 5 to...

    I worked at Equinor full-time for more than 4 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...

    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

    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

      I worked at Equinor full-time for more than 2 years

      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.

      Great benefits are a reason to work here. Also a great place for lazy people to get ahead.

      Management is non communicative. Bonuses are crappy.

      Take feedback from employees seriously and make real changes

      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.
