A friendly and principled company
Data Coordinator/Exploration Draughtsman (Former Employee) –  London10 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.
Pros
Travel
Cons
Inter office gossip and back-biting

Good colleagues, company values its employees
Environmental Engineer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB3 May 2018
Really good work culture, with a very collegial and casual atmosphere. Executive management was predominantly old school and very hierarchical. Advancement opportunities were available but you had to be willing to move abroad to get them. Projects were poorly managed and overall company had a great deal of miscommunication with the parent in Norway. Norwegians see things through a very rose-colored Norwegian view of the world, the so-called "Viking Will". International business units have an extreme disconnect with Norway making corporate expectations unrealistic and unworldly.
Pros
Company benefits, good people
Cons
Lack of management expertise on International scale

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.
