    I worked at Maersk Oil full-time

    The company had great health insurance policies and a good 401k.

    I worked at Maersk Oil full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Excellent benefits
    - Friendly culture
    - Diverse group of individuals
    - Ability to move around and grow as a member of the support staff

    Cons

    - HR didn't listen until it was too late, and then realized their mistakes
    - Mismanaged and lots of misinformation floating constantly
    - Well, the office is closing....

    Advice to Management

    You could have listened to people when they spoke up, but chose to ignore it. If you come back to Houston, make sure your HR department is more focused on listening to the team rather then trying to solve issues after they leave and during their exit interviews.
