    Pros

    Statoil is a great place to work that will reward you if you apply yourself. The benefits are fantastic (especially the healthcare and vacation policy). The work is challenging but the amount of personal responsibility given to make an impact is refreshing. Yes, there are some bad leaders at Statoil as there will be at any other company. The Revenue manager has been a game changer the past 9 months and is the best leader I have ever had. This place has been one of my favourite jobs and I would recommend Statoil to anyone who isn't afraid of rewarding hard work. My team is fantastic and there isn't a day that goes by where we don't laugh and have a good time.

    Cons

    There are times that Statoil will frustrate you. This will happen but you have to remember that these frustrations don't last and there are improvements occurring. Pay could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on hiring the right external people and promoting talented internal employees who know what they are doing.

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

    Pros

    Company socially conscious, employees well-paid, good PTO & holidays, great benefits, bonuses, opportunities to work across disciplines.

    Cons

    Vulnerable to cuts when oil prices low, which can really stress employee relationships and workload

    Advice to Management

    Plan budget and hiring based on the lean times so there will be less layoffs when prices fall. Layoff atmosphere leads to less productive workforce - everyone is just trying to make themselves look critical to the mission.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Excellent pay, one of the highest starting salaries in the oil industry
    High level of respect between coworkers, very ethical and high moral standards
    Excellent training, both regarding the drilling field and general management
    Large amount of freedom to do extra training modules that are not requisite of the position

    Cons

    very strict rules, often good, but at times overbearing, such as not being able to work longer than specified work week without asking permission to work overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Really can not think of much feedback, as I'm very happy with the company and work, only potential improvement would be in making it easier for junior employees to obtain international positions.
