Subsurface (Former Employee) – Houston,Texas – 12 May 2013
Statoil has good benefits that are comparable with the industry. I will elaborate only on Houston Onshore. Not much to praise about. They lack established processes and nothing runs smoothly. The work environment is OPEN seating which is very stifling, distracting, and not set up for professionals of our trade. The management style is one sided and shallow. The politics are designed to confuse and made up to fit the situation at that time. Big turnover in employees over the last 5 years. Not much improvement since.
Startup Process Advisor (Former Employee) – Tjeldbergodden, Norway – 12 October 2017
Statoil was a great place to work. The Norwegian work culture places a higher emphasis on family life balance than other places i have worked. A highly skilled and educated workforce. They say you can either win the lottery or work for Statoil.
