      Avoid - Not at all what what you’d expect from a supermajor

      Pros

      Formerly you would be sent to Houston nearly once a year for 1-2 weeks of training. This is a minor perk though. There really isn’t much else to be happy with in this dysfunctional affiliate. I absolutely felt the need to write this review as I believe there are completely false reviews written below (especially the most recent reviews ). This place has gotten even worse than it already was post COVID. I seriously expect the PGA department (effectively public relations department) are behind the below reviews - they are so devoid from the reality of working here that only a promotion agenda can explain this Pay is significantly short of resource industry average (surprising I know!). There are no bonuses in the Exxon system either so forget about that.

      Cons

      Absolutely toxic individuals at supervisor level. It is very far spread - beware what you are getting into. Knowledge transfer is extremely limited - the utter failure ‘competitive ranking system’ (PDS process) seems to promote coveting of knowledge and it is absolutely destructive to teamwork. Many systems here are abysmal/dysfunctional. I don’t like having to write a review like this - but again I think it is only fair that prospective employees know what they are signing up for give the clearly false positive reviews written below

      Pros

      Global company, well developed systems, strong organisational values, professional and respectful colleagues.

      Cons

      Challenged industry conditions and lower business activity levels (eg minimal expansion/projects) may limit opportunities and career advancement (eg training, promotions, salary increases) over next 3-5 years.
