    Pros

    Great people to work with Work/life balance Affords great experience in energy fundamentals market - this job is a launchpad, not a career though

    Cons

    Pay is very low, raises hardly keep pace with inflation - promotions bring little monetary value, no incentive to work harder and longer hours Feedback from (some) managers is almost nonexistent Management seems to have little direction, akin to a rudderless ship Entrepreneurial spirit is encouraged but things take forever to get done Slow decision making process, bureaucratic Little upward mobility unless... someone leaves, which has become less frequent Management plays favorites

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to grow the company with no clear direction while mobility and opportunity languish below the executive level. Pay your employees more to inspire some motivation, the money is borderline insulting for what some people are capable of there. Decide if you want to train analysts to move on, or develop them there and provide opportunities. Lastly, town halls and company speak revolved around automating... things, taking the people out of the process - this is not exactly motivating language. Thankfully, initiatives in this vein that were discussed in 2016 and 2017 still have not come to fruition and still seem a long way off.
