Such a great environment!
Contract Lease Analyst, In-House (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXDecember 7, 2016
I have really enjoyed my time at Statoil. I was brought on in a contract position in the Houston office and when my husband was transferred to Austin, they allowed me to stay on and work from their Austin office. I have learned so much during my time here. My only negative comment would be that, as a contractor, you job security is pretty minimal as is your room for growth. However, that is the case in any contractor situation, not just Statoil. I also wish that contractors would be considered along with employees for the first shot at employee openings/promotions. That being said, I hope to work here full time one day.
Pros
Positive work environment, good management structure, kind co-workers
Cons
Limited job security, little room for growth as a contractor

Very disorganized place to work
Consultant (Contract) (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXOctober 9, 2016
In many ways it was a great place to work - mainly because of the people that I met there & worked with. Serious management deficiencies - the work not organized very well. Promises made & not kept.

Pipeline Sr. O&M Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Three Rivers, TXMay 16, 2016
Working in a oil and gas workplace can be challenging at times; however I enjoy the challenges. I have learned leadership skills along with people skills with working with different personalities. The hardest part of this job can be changes; although there are always changes in the industry with the price of oil today there are constant changes trying to reduce cost.
