    I worked at TGS-NOPEC full-time

    Pros

    Free Food, Paid Vacations, Paid Sick,

    Cons

    The lack of training. The lack of management skills. The totalitarian ways of doing things. The favoritism is off the charts, you could be the best in your group but if "THEY" do not like you, forget it. They can and will reduce your Bonus and restructure your pay without letting you know in advance. Example, say you make eighty grand total and say "THEY" give you a raise in salary and you feel all good, then at the end of the year you made the same as last year and you’re wondering how is that? Well, what TGS-NOPEC does is cut your bonus so you never get ahead and keep cutting. And TGS-NOPEC does this on a consistent basis.
    Also, TGS-NOPEC will short you in pay whenever they can. Example, TGS-NOPC does not comp you for over-time in anyway shape or form that I noticed.
    Also, there sure are A LOT of H1B visa workers in the Research and Development Department (These are just opinions) I wonder how many in the Research and Development Department got laid off?

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage people without the threat of being let go.

    Take a look at the sales staff. They do not know how to sell or develop new business. They only know how to answer the phone.

    HR should be there to assist staff on development, not walk the floor to see who is chained to their desk.
