    Pros

    Great people, excellent remuneration, interesting work. Projects given to vacation students had real impact on the business.

    Cons

    There were no real downsides to working for this company. You are expected to be smart, and work hard, but are rewarded well for it.

    Pros

    Good benefit, job security, good brand name, I guess if you are engineer or geologist, that's a good company to start with.

    Cons

    You will never get promoted if you can't make yourself the "chosen" one within 3 years. Very political, process driven, lots of "loyal" employees and the only thing they know is "cover your ass".

    Advice to Management

    Top down communication need to be better channeled. The company is too slow. Need to change the organisational structure to get rid of all those hierachical barriers. No incentive for young employees as promotion takes forever.

    Pros

    Global organization with some opportunities to travel (depending on position).
    You will also be exposed to many facets of the business.

    Cons

    working long hours. Working in a Global organization, and having to work in virtual environment with phone hook ups can really eat into your personal time. Time differences are killers.

    Advice to Management

    acknowledgment of work accomplishments would not go astray

    Pros

    Global company so issues and career opportunities across the world. Some really interesting issues. Good benefits including stock purchase, 401K and defined benefit pension plan.Quality of people in the company generally very high. Good people to work with and a culture of being pleasant, supportive. The "General Interest" is a real concept.

    Cons

    Lots of process, can be frustrating. HR generally unhelpful -- they will e-mail you a paragraph from the policy manual instead of giving a personalized answer to your question.

    Advice to Management

    Rate HR according to employee satisfaction and feedback.

    Having to either commute or move to a to a rural area (woodlands) to work

    Let your managers make decision, that's what you pay them for. More autonomy.
