Hi guys, I interest in moving to Houston or Dallas. I would love to work for an oil gas company but they tend to be very picky. What companies do you guys suggest and are willing to hire someone from another state. I am relocating regardless so I really don't expect a relocation package. I am currently a Financial analyst , with experience in logistics and finance. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated . Like Shell BP Chevron TotalEnergies @
I always have low BP and when I spoke to my doctor, they informed me that some individuals naturally have low blood pressure. As long as I don't experience any symptoms or health issues, I should be fine. However, I sometimes still feel concerned about it.

Good place if you want to play it safeDec 15, 2021 - Senior Well Engineer in London, EnglandRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Culture of understanding and empathy. Agreement by consensus (if you are risk averse). (Previously) International Opportunities
- Bureaucracy & hierarchical. Although trying to change this, old habits die hard. - Low morale in the oil & gas function due to public shunning of segment throughout 2020. - Far more limited international opportunities. - Progression is glacial and is now founded more on who you know, talking a good talk & overall optics. Technical interviews are no longer gruelling, to ensure greater representation and D&I - which tough technical interviews was found to be at odds with. Now hiring managers need to know who they are likely to hire before they've internally interviewed. Makes a mockery of the system. - Only a handful are hand picked for progression into the upper echelons of the organisation - feels like an old boys club. - Simplification by reducing headcount only, not reducing workload.Continue reading

Shareholders firstMar 6, 2017 - Market ResearchRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
While BP looks after its staff while you're employed, they just as easily show you the door. Good benefits, reasonable salaries. How well you do depends on your boss.
Shareholders come first, not employees. Lots of company politics. Senior management looking out for themselves, not for their employees. Low gas prices seemed to take the organization by surprise. Their solution was to cut staff numbers, not to improve productivity. Letting experienced people go and replacing them with inexperienced, cheaper employees.Continue reading

Great place to work and learn for beginnersJan 16, 2020 - Indirect Tax Analyst () in Kuala LumpurRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Great working environment with supportive team mates. For fresh graduates, this would a good start up point for valuable learnings and exposure.
Hard to move up positions or maybe the process is slower here since its a huge oil and gas company.

Don't get on this sinking ship.....Aug 27, 2008 - Lead Accountant - Sunbury CoE in Sunbury, EnglandRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
A huge company with global prescence, a nice working enviroment where you can quickly find your comfort zone and work your way around the company - doing lots of meaningless jobs with fancy job titles. Still a few expat roles out there, where the money and benefits are excellent.
Small fish in a big pond - very uncommercial management team, constant change, underperforming, low pay, rapidly reducing total reward package (just got rid of c-days etc) At the moment they are on a real cost-cutting process, which has dramtically reduced the amount of international travel opportuninties. Senior management have been around to long and lost touch with the quickly changing oil&gas environmentContinue reading
