      Good but not what I am looking for

      Sep 4, 2014 - Executive (Operation)

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      A lots of training opportunities to enhance competencies Great mobility whereby you can change role or operating units and chances to work overseas Good leaders with clear vision

      Cons

      Slow career progression due to the current structure. Might take minimum 4-7 years for a junior executive to be promoted to senior executive. Unclear job scope. Being an operation executive in the region office, most of the time I was assigned to do non-technical stuffs or most of the time being like a messenger between offshore and office (which should be done by a planner itself) which hinders me from doing things that is really technical and related to my job scope. This is kinda demotivational. Nevertheless, you get to know a lot of people through these unrelated assignments. Lesser benefits and lower salary as compared to other oil and gas companies

      Pros

      Stable career. Difficult to be hiredx difficult to be terminated once in the system.

      Cons

      Technical career progression is much more assessment oriented without taking into account employee significant contribution in Project delivery. Revision of grading system for career ladder promotion indirectly suppressed career progression. There are 2 main things for technical career progression, compulsory years of service + pass the technical assessment with flying colors
