Wasted time

I'm just sorry I wasted time in this company. Can only blame myself though. I'm probably not the only one who feels that way - staying here much longer than one should? I hope others were able to find much better jobs. It took me a long time to find... —  read more 

Petroleum Project Services

I have never been so embarrassed to be part of an organization as poor as this. The org chart to be shared on Tuesday is an embarrassment, no other O&G operator would allow such nonsense. Great knowledgeable talent will be cut for the sake of... —  read more

Winter Is Coming!!

I feel to insecure

Ever since the last round of layoffs I feel like I have no job security. I'm just an end to a means and can be sacked regardless of how hard I work or how much I contribute. When will this madness ever end???
