    Pros

    Great salary and benefits they p ay 100% of all medical and dental insurance at the PPO level.

They get exactly what work life balance means.

    I have been working at Statoil full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent company overall. I find the management to have a very good attitude. One of their stated goals is to be "humble". Both myself (20+ years) and a colleague of mine (30+ years) in the industry are amazed to hear such an admirable goal for management. I like how friendly everyone is, including management. I have worked at another very good major oil company and the atmosphere at Statoil is even better.

    I really like how Statoil has hired senior staff with many years of experience from all the major oil companies. It really leads to diversity of thought in problem solving.

    I find everyone to be friendly and wanting to be helpful.

    Cons

    No many - It is a very lean exploration organization and thus has not been able to do the massive amount of background science in US and GoM that other majors have done with huge staff numbers over the last 30 years. So playing a bit of "catch up"

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course. You are very sensible and pragmatic. You are easier to work with than the management at my previous employer which is another major oil company.

    I worked at Statoil full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Statoil Houston - there are none.

    Cons

    This company is farce, no reality to what a real oil and gas company does. They don't do much at all really, except run everyone ragged with their schemes to earn a profit. Norway pays for all of it.

    People - A handful of great little people, otherwise a never-ending series of attempts to make improvements with no real rewards. All lie, cheat and steal, bully, coerce to get their sin to play you as a puppet.

    Leaders - some are good people, some very knowledgeable, but would play their own mothers if they were under them. This is all for nothing, there is no profit. End result is people work out of fear...

    Advice to Management

    Nothing..bad environment fosters bad people and practices. These values of yours are not reaching the masses who need them.
