    I worked at Salamander Energy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A small company where your contribution can really make a difference. If you see a need to spend money on software or an outsourced technical project, management are normally supportive.

    Cons

    The company may have over-committed itself, with its deep water acreage.
    They are now losing a lot of senior technical staff. Historically, senior management have recruited people they know personally. With growth, this has become difficult, and a few mistakes have been made with hiring.
    Salaries are becoming uncompetitive, with reliance on the employee share option scheme to form a larger part of the annual bonus. With the share price stagnant or declining, this is of dubious value.


  2. "Mid size operator with potential upside growth"

    I have been working at Salamander Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Small company, small teams, flat management structure. Opportunities pick up a variety of skills with access to different discplines

    Cons

    Limited projects (small company); Lack of training opportunities for career development

    Advice to Management

    More training initiatives for less experienced staff - a mentoring program might be helpful
