    I worked at Equinor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Large group, able to meet some great engineers. Norwegian attitude to breaks, can sit and discuss as long as the work is done. Nice office and new equipment. Friendly staff and nice lunch area. Flexible arrangements and good for staff with family.

    Cons

    Unconscious basis towards non-Norwegian employees. Development is available but is very poor. Finger pointing atmosphere from top , middle, and just above - down. Desk engineer with minimal opportunity to go offshore. Toxic environment and unable to change due to high level of cronyism.

    I worked at Equinor full-time

    Pros

    It is a very good company to work for, excellent benefits, very good working environment, however, very political.

    Cons

    One of the values they spread out in the organization is Open. In reality, people are not open. You expect your boss will give you honest and constructive feedback on your work along the year, but you will only know through your grade in the annual performance assessment.
