Great place to be hired.
Accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJanuary 30, 2018
This company treats their employees well, but if you are hoping to be hired from a contractor position it wont happen. If your role is temporary, leave at the end of your contract and keep it temporary.

Head of Business Solutions (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXOctober 18, 2017
The company is very flat in hierachy which is good as decisions can be made faster compared to other peers. The company was also quicker to react through signifcant structural cost changes during the recent oil downturn.

Coordinator Facilities (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 12, 2017
If the US offices truly adhered to the Norwegian values it truly would be a blessing to work for the company. They believe in family and they do take care of their employees health insurance wise but thats about it.
Pros
Great insurance and benefits

No room for growth - horrible management
