    Good pay but lack of promoton opportunity!

    Exploration Analyst (Current Employee) Melbourne

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

    ConsYou 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 Senior ManagementTop 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.

    Typical Business Support Center

    Analyst (Current Employee) Budapest (Hungary)

    ProsThe BSC offers a wide variety of opportunities from IT to Customer Service. If you are smart and can position yourself properly with your managers you can start a good carrier here, including international assignments.

    ConsObsession with Safety is crazy considerint it is an office environment. Mandatory job rotation in every 2-3 years. Personal performance is secondary factor in your carrier.

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue the experienced colleguages. Focus on real improvement versus virtual ones like safety.

    Contract position, too many cooks in the kitchen, but it was ok while it lasted

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe pay was excellent and there was no micromanaging.

    ConsThere were too many cooks in the kitchen and not enough people actually doing and creating action.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire people who you feel are easy to manage and work with instead of those who might be overqualified and actually have experience.

    Solid Company

    Pricing (Current Employee) Baytown, TX (US)

    ProsSay what they mean, and mean what they say

    ConsRating & Ranking system is antiquated at best

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe current rating & ranking system naturally puts downward rating pressure on employees as they gain experience. Many new employees have expressed concerns over this practice. It's hard to say how many potentially strong new employees have chosen to work for other companies because of the rating and ranking system.
