    Pros

    This is a great place to work if you have a lot of other things going on in your life. There’s lots of time off and the working environment is pretty relaxed.

    Cons

    Pay is horrible for technical people (engineers, geologists, techs). There is also little opportunity for technical mentor ship. If you are a self-started and heavily involved in professional societies this shouldn’t be an issue though.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately there is nothing you can do about the pay, so keep doing what you’re doing.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work for a company that considers the environmental impact of developing natural resources. It felt good to work for such an organization.

    Cons

    Fairly constant state of internal change. Some departments are much to work in than others. Some internal conflict between certain departments and team.

    Advice to Management

    Enable the experts you hire to be the expert you hired them to be. There is also a culture of always having to look over shoulder and wondering if you have a job tomorrow.

    Pros

    great benefits and pay.

    Cons

    no longer an emphasis on technical prowess; technical expertise is being eroded through constant re-orgs. Industry knows more about regulations than the staff.
