    Pros

    Reputable major oil and gas company, support given for external or online training, flexible working e.g. compressed working week

    Cons

    Middle management facilitate nepotism, favouritism and ‘old boys’ network’ despite resent efforts by corporate leadership to instil ‘Inclusion and Diversity’.
    Way too many traders considering the equity portfolio.
    False recruitment strategy - open positions are not ‘open’; the successful candidate is typically pre-selected and groomed before the hiring process.
    Low morale due to lack of movement in careers, no promotions and women feeling disenchanted.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management in San Ramon need to understand why so many people in the London office are discontented with their local management.
