Data Coordinator/Exploration Draughtsman (Former Employee) – London – 10 July 2013
Due to the structure of the company, on a typical day you knew exactly what was expected of you and what tasks you had to perform. I learnt how a large multi-national company works and how to effectively liaise with colleagues in several continents. The management was organised, structured and highly principled. The co-workers were on the main excellent, but as you would in such a large company there was some 'dead wood'. The hardest part of the job could be the predictability. The most enjoyable part of the job was the huge amount I learnt; a mass of software and dealing with different cultures.

Statoil is an an excellent employer especially for those with an interest in innovation and sustainability. As with any O & G company there will be ups and downs however Statoil's Executive works hard to minimize adverse impacts during challenging economic times.
INT. PROCUREMENT ANALYST (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 4 January 2018
The benefits and incentives are good but what makes people spend years at Statoil is really the people. I was fortunate to have great management my entire time there. The workplace culture is relaxed and a work/life balance is appreciated. Your workload is yours to manage yourself; you are not micro-managed.
The most challenging part of the job is the fact that the head office is international and sometimes the decisions taken for the local offices are tone deaf due to the distance.
