    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Arrow Energy full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Small enough that you can still influence change, great opportunities to work in multidisciplinary teams and extend yourself beyond your PD if you have the motivation to drive your own professional development

    Cons

    Organisational structure and relatively small size of the company makes career progression difficult, changing project directions has meant multiple rounds of redundancy over the years and a lingering sense of uncertainty among employees

    Advice to Management

    Consider offering additional paid annual leave or 9 day fortnight in regional locations to bring benefits in line with other resource companies

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Arrow Energy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great conditions, in terms of salary, work-life balance.

    Cons

    Never any progress on any programme - so great conditions but nothing ever happens. (Shame) Insufficient focus on core business. Used as a stopover by RD Shell and Petrochina executives without an eye for operational requirements. Poor role demarcation, weak and slow C&P dept and generally poor leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Be more business-like, set goals and get more experienced people involved in C&P; Switch focus to field activities and reduce managers with big titles, increase field personnel; reward commitment and hard work, have actionable plans.

      I have been working at Arrow Energy full-time

      Pros

      A very culturally diverse organization and great to work with other teams and experiences.

      Cons

      Heavily mandated by shareholder scecondees with competing interest. Little space for local employees to move up and progress. Arrow struggles to make decisions due to the complex relationship between shareholders.

      Advice to Management

      Commit to decisions and look to reduce secondee requirements and promote locals

      Disapproves of CEO

      I have been working at Arrow Energy

      Pros

      The pay is adequate for a company that doesn't really ask much from their staff

      Cons

      The company has been in a holding pattern for years and still doesn't really have any clear direction

      Advice to Management

      Streamline the business, make a decision and set a timeline to implement it
