      Very generous and professionally run company

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Lots of training to management and it shows. There is a culture of respect and professionalism in every area of the company. Benefits and pay are generous, typical with the industry. If you are not familiar with oil and gas, you will make more than you will in most industries.

      Cons

      Typical large corporation with bloated bureaucracy and slow-moving parts. The organization is so big, however, that this ironically varies depending on where you are. Typical virtue signaling when it comes to the issue of the day instead of a principled corporate culture that is not moved by trending controversies.

      Pros

      Strong CEO. Starting to become more progressive in becoming an energy company and not just an oil company. Good benefits and compensation.

      Cons

      Large corporation and they act like one. 95% of employees are "cogs on the wheel" with very little upward mobility or trajectory.
