Operations

January 1970

Still a long way to go in terms of workplace culture for inclusion and diversity - Oil & Gas is still very heavily an old boys' club. Base case I think the nature of manufacturing and production facilities which are running 24/7/365 tends to push people to feel like they always need to be available. The company does have good benefits, especially with the extra 8 weeks of family leave passed in 2017. Biggest challenge is setting your own limits for work/life balance as the culture will always be there pushing to be available more hours and "always on".

    Company passed an extra 8 weeks of family leave for both parents in 2017, which is a great improvement. Still remains to be seen what the fallout will be for employees who actually use their time off, as the general culture is flexible work hours on paper "at supervisors discretion" and then judging people behind their backs for not putting in long hours and a lot of desk time. Overall, culture pushes people to work extra hours (running joke is the question - "Why give employees 9/80s when we get them to work 10/100s?")

    Improve work-life balance and policies (e.g. flex-time, limit face time)

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Women seem to be somewhat fairly treated on the management side as there is a focus on pushing women into the management track in middle management. However, there is still a shortage of women at the upper level of management, and two of the very senior women have retired this year and were replaced by men due to a lack of "qualified candidates". Very few women on the technical side are promoted into the upper ranks (first female Chief Engineer every for ExxonMobil Chemical in 2017). Company culture prioritizes employee location flexibility and willingness to work on expatriate assignments as career development requirements but does not provide expat assignments in equal number to women even in locations that are safe.

There are opportunities for short-term flexibility, but not long-term for a career in my opinion

it is not an 'old white man's' company, depsite the appearance of the CEO. There are great opportunites, working with great people, if you are willing to invest the time and learn the company culture.

    Maybe. While the work is interesting, there is always more work than time, and the company demands a high level of work and personal integrity. This is just not the company for everyone.
