    Excellent School - Seniority Growth makes you a target for layoff

    Mar 1, 2021 - Senior Director in Houston, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Training and Development is excellent - International Experience - although downturns and tech have reduced the international transfer culture - Technical level of co-workers is very high - Benefits are ok, but cannot compete with Oil operators

    Cons

    - Work-Life balance is an issue. Working overtime is the norm - Has released 60,000 people since 2015. So the fear of being released is constant - Once you surpass the B6 grade you become a target to be released, regardless of performance - Downturn has been used as the excuse to reduce the population so drastically, but it rather is the transformation program that the are executing rather than real business outlook. - Downturn and "multiskilling" are the reasons to make people wear three hats.
