Great place to work, but had terrible management in Canada.

Great place to work, nice people and strong pro worker culture. Top Mgt in the location I worked was laid back and allowed lots of bad behaviour from mid mgt.

Pros

Good pay and benefits.

Cons

Advancement is tough and management was quite bizarre.

Your experience matters.

Help out others considering your employer. Rate your employer.

Just okay

Compared to the rest of the industry, Equinor is just okay. The benefits that used to be there in 2012 have dwindled down to below industry standards. The constant reductions and misdirection of leadership continues. However, if you want an OK job with an average level of stress this is the place for you.

Pros

Retirement

Cons

Leadership

Good Company but uncertain U.S. future.

This is a good company to work for. The work/life balance is good and the facility in Houston is first rate. There has been four reorganizations in the last 15 months and the company has drastically reduced its' employee base and footprint in the U.S. Norway is sending signals that this reduction will continue so I knocked the overall rating down because of this uncertainty.

Pros

9/80 work schedule, Good PTO with past experience taken into account. Compensation comparable to other energy companies

Cons

Uncertain future in the U.S.

Great Job if you are Management

Within my first 90 days of employment I was told that I would never move up in the organization. That my position was as far as anyone could go in the Planning / Scheduling role. This is nearly unheard of in the oil and gas industry. They preach inclusiveness for diversity, however they practice the “good ole boy” system. Benefits were phenomenal, and the pay is beyond belief. However, they do not keep their promises when it comes to bonuses and LTI’s. I strongly suggest checking your employment agreements THREE times before signing, and definitely check any and all non-compete agreements. They are quick to sell assets, and have no loyalty to personnel!!

Pros

Pay and Benefits

Cons

No employee loyalty, Do not keep employment promises

Good company to work

The company culture is very good and the people are very friendly. The work and life balance is reasonable and the benefits are very good. Because of the company structure in the exploration of US GOM, the collaboration between the departments is week in the past.

Pros

Good pay and benefits

Cons

Not much

Excessive turn over.

The excessive turn over shows this company is poorly managed or the employees really don’t like the work/managers. People left voluntarily as a way out or gave up to get the severance package. Lots of good senior people left just to get out.

Pros

Free snacks and coffee in the break rooms.

Cons

No fun and uptight. Job insecurity!

Very good Reward package

Pays good salary for a professional position and has generous benefits that include paid vacation days and health insurance. The company also contributes to employees pension plans.

Pros

Employee share plans.

Cons

Engaged in business with limited growth

Good place to work for experienced people

I was working earlier in Statoil. Great company where those who want to perform and work more are able to do so. I was located in Oslo in a very impressive building. You bring more your knowledge than you learn so I would recommend to get experience before enrolling with them

Empresa opera dentro dos padrões de ética comercial.

Nada a acrescentar a não ser o fato de ser uma empresa comprometida com a ética.

Pros

Empresa comprometida com a ética.

Cons

Instabilidade, na questão permanência na empresa frente a crise que envolva o ramo de atuação da empresa, terceirização de alguns setores.

Enjoyed my time with the company

Being in the field, our management kept us out of all the politics that come with big companies. It was a great experience, just too bad the property got sold.The Completions team in Austin was top notch, amazing folks to work for.

Pros

Great group to work with

Cons

Hot, hot, hot during the summer

Godt humør mellom avdelingene

Har store resurser tilgjengelig for detaljer i jobben som faller utenfor de daglige oppgavene, lett å få oppbakking og hjelp i gråsoner.

Pros

Parkering

Cons

For mye bruk av formelle prosedyrer som ARIS, som igjen hindrer bruk av sunn fornuft

Equinor is the worst company to work for

The managers at Equinor in the Marcellus and Utica shale plays are only concerned with stepping over power employees to make themselves look good for Houston and Norway. They will roll you under the bus in a heart beat to save themselves.

Pros

Great pay

Cons

Totally unorganized and get contractors killed

Great place to work unfortunately they were not committed to Canadian oil sands.

Great place to work in collaborative atmosphere where opportunities to learn, travel, and advance are present. You feel like you are working for a responsible energy company.

Pros

great benefits, good pay and great people

Cons

foreign company may not be in tune with your country's culture
