      Pros

      Money and time off. The people I work with are a great bunch of blokes. Very friendly.

      Cons

      They changed rota from 2 weeks on 3 weeks off to 3 on and 3 of. Very long time away from family. We had no choice. This is extremely tiring and there is a lot of depression out here. People getting very down.

      Amazing company ruined single handedly by CEO and CFO!

      Pros

      Great people - except new senior leadership team that new CEO brought in to surround himself with self praise.

      Cons

      It really was an amazing company, but the CEO has destroyed it by his incredible decisions to focus only on the US shale play (great job Lee!). You used to be able to speak up and give opinions, you now lose your job for doing so!

      Pros

      Work with some great people on interesting projects, value driven, - small enough company to 'get involved'.

      Cons

      Do not handle change well especially in terms of communication, as well as great people there are some non team players who are difficult to work with, a US focus means international often gets ignored.
