    I worked at Woodside Petroleum

    Pros

    Remuneration. Exposure to large scale projects.

    Cons

    Welcome to Woodside Energy, the Exxon Mobil mini-me. Where appearance is far more important than substance. Do not expect fair treatment, performance management transparency or honesty. Do expect high degrees of competition, long hours, widespread gender driven positive discrimination and more corporate buzzwords and initiatives than you can shake a stick at. Performance management is pot luck at best. No honesty or transparency at all. Promotion is a popularity contest where groups of 'buddies' look after one another. A mid career technical career ladder is completely absent. Company is very top heavy and drowning in process. If you're looking for a company that cares more about perception then authenticity and honesty then Woodside is the company for you.

    I worked at Woodside Petroleum full-time

    Pros

    Great workforce - generally capable. Good development opportunities for lower to mid level staff; Great pay; Opportunities to work outside your area of expertise

    Cons

    Limited development opportunities for mid-senior career people; Company's growth prospects are poor - CEO has failed to deliver a number of opportunities (other than a new HQ); Very hierarchical - results in lack of agility & limited ability to influence your work area; Executive team has some high quality individuals but on the face of it they are dysfunctional as a team; Question that values focus is demonstrated by a small number of executives. Some (but not all) questionable appointments which appear to be based on relationships with CEO; Spends too much time doing business with itself - some areas have too many people and add little value, others have not enough despite being high value areas; Performance management system is poor - it lacks any transparency and is a lucky dip at most times.

    "Toxic Culture in Production"

    I worked at Woodside Petroleum full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Wide range of opportunities in various area

    Cons

    The performance management system was too easily corrupted. A person could be given whatever rating the boss wanted and there were no independent appeal, requirements to have any evidence to back up the score or procedural fairness to how the decision was reached. Production in particular had a culture where dissenters or people who asked uncomfortable questions of management were considered “dangerous” and the HR system used against them. Promotions and job appointments lacked transparency with a preselected inner circle being marked for greatness as “rising stars” and given access to select roles as part of the “development plans”. Means you get very young managers who confuse their talents with their ambitions and for who failure is not a barrier to their next promotion. For the humble majority you get left in a role unless you find another one and are allowed to move.
