    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 have been working at Statoil full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, 9/80 work schedule, subsidized meals

    Cons

    Career growth is tied to Norwegian culture, which is very flat & socialistic.

    Advice to Management

    Less expats more locals....locals are a lot cheaper and more knowledgeable.

    Pros

    Goede work/life balans, een goed bedrijf om je carrière te starten, informele sfeer, veel contact met collega's in het buitenland. Bij dit bedrijf staan de werknemers op 1

    Cons

    Binnen de Nederlandse vestiging zijn er weinig mogelijkheden om verder te groeien. Voor een volgende stap binnen het bedrijf zal echt aan het buitenland gedacht moeten worden (Mn Noorwegen)
