    Cons

    Repsol is a global company Headquartered in Madrid, Spain. If you are not accepting of cultural diversity or feel the US should be have complete control then this may not be the company for you. As with all energy companies the last few years have left some limited opportunities for career advancement, but this is on the upswing.

    Advice to Management

    Continue your leadership development and growth. Continue to accept new ways of working.

      Pros

      -Nice office. - They have continued to hire technical staff with varied backgrounds and ages. - Global projects

      Cons

      In no specific order: -People have skated by for years doing very little but still have a job because they have made friends. - The performance reviews are such a joke. Groups making the largest impact are given low scores with no explanation. Scores are based on favoritism. So many spouses and life-long friends work in the same group. Rating your friend's husband low doesnt help a friendship so they boost them. ...

      Pros

      Let me admit, I met some really great people among employees, more so among specialists and much less among managers, although even some managers were good people. Company hires pretty diverse people with very different backgrounds, some are really talented, some are inspiring and many do a good job and make things happen. Projects, although there are not so many, are challenging and interesting to work with... Sometimes...

      Cons

      I don't know where to start, so here it goes in spontaneous order - Stuff reductions come one after another and people are fired and forced to early retirement between major reductions all the time. Each episode makes environment more toxic.
