    Great place to work if you’re a white male. Very unethical place - they gave an EHS employee a severance and allowed him to come back as a contractor for his Uncle! Wow!!!

    Advice to Management

    Change the HR function leadership from the top down! Operates on favoritism and sucking up.

    Pros

    Overall positive corporate culture. Pay and benefits are fairly good. Outlook is always good when oil prices are high.

    Cons

    No defined career paths for those in this role. Takes an act of Congress to get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    The practice of promoting admins or hiring non-college graduates into this role has tainted its reputation and has ultimately created a gross power imbalance in favor of the teams it supports. Solution: For this role, hire college graduates and make a serious attempt at developing their careers.
