I joined Equinor in 2018 and have really enjoyed my work. There are some great people within this organization and leadership really cares about personal growth and success. There are, of course, always going to be a few bad apples in every organization, but overall the people have been great to work with. I see the company values echoed in leadership's management style with examples such as providing town halls to communicate company changes, prioritizing training for personal development, fostering a continuous feedback culture, and encouragement of internal movement.
There are a lot of wonderful benefits for employees, especially in the US. Generous vacation/sick leave, health benefits are better than any other organization I have ever been at, 401K available, and lots of other perks that vary by location. I especially love having a 9/80 schedule and their Houston office is a great campus to be located at with lots of amenities on site (multiple cafeterias, dry cleaning, gym, etc.).
Since Equinor is based out of Norway, we obviously have to take our direction from their leadership team and objectives. This can be difficult at times, but, if you have a global mindset, it is a great opportunity to learn a different way of thinking and experience a work culture that is very different from American led organizations. I especially have enjoyed how global our office is with lots of diversity which leads to new ways of thinking.
Overall, I would definitely recommend Equinor as a great place to work!
9/80 schedule for Texas locations, high focus on work/life balance, culture promotes development and internal movement
Strong Norwegian influence can be difficult for some people to acclimate to
