    I worked at Santos full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Working for a renowned Australian oil & gas operator gives you some kudos and bragging rights in the pub. The salaries at Santos are pretty good.

    Cons

    Arrogance of their staff, particularly senior management and that is illogical seeing that the company haemorrhaged hundreds of millions on GLNG from downright bad and amateurish project management.

    I worked at Santos

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Good working atmosphere. The team environment is very supportive and most workmates are ready to help if and when the need arises

    Cons

    Being a large organisation some employees do display a silo mentality. Forms and paperwork are galore. Sometimes decisions are made by senior management without consultation with the reporting team and this has had a major impact on project deliverables.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Santos

    Pros

    At the work face the workers are typical of the Australian workplace - competent and friendly. Above average salaries.

    Cons

    Senior management not so interested in what is good for business, only interested in self, very political and discriminating against anyone who dares to challenge poor decisions. Constant restructures which hide past mistakes, those that rock the boat are moved sideways, downwards and ultimately out the door. Convoluted annual appraisals which are meaningless, bonuses unfairly (unethically) distributed.
