    I worked at Woodside Petroleum full-time

    Pros

    Decent salary especially if based on site. Some intelligent and friendly people. New building in Perth has good facilities.

    Cons

    50% people are overworked and 50% people have no clear role and just create/manage internal bureaucracy which doesn't add value. Usually the 50% people that don't add value receive better performance rankings - a system which discourages collaboration and encourages competing and beating their own drum. It also ensures that a portion of the workforce is dissatisfied with their job due to performance ranking. Producing assets focus on their annual budget, not lifecycle costs or sustainable decisions. Large maintenance backlogs which are increasing. No substantial projects have been successful in a long time. High cost of new building and IT department mean internal charge-out rates are high and constant squabble over everyone's time writing allocation.
