    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Oil Search

    Pros

    Reasonable Food Good Gym Something different each day Some individual managers and employees where worth there weight or more in Gold for there professional and social contribution

    Cons

    Money wasn't sufficient for the daily BS you had to put up with from your Contract Manager Contract Manager was a "Has Been" and deliberately set about undermining those that were working for him cos he felt threatened by the new breed of performing manager. Poor communication and support Poor ongoing training and team building Poor planning and productivity

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of you dead wood Stand behind your managers and contractors Set minimum bench marks Dismantle the boys club and the incestuous behavior that goes with it
