Exciting and challenging work
Administration Assistant - Part Time (Former Employee) –  Roma QLD28 December 2016
There was never a typical day, every day was varied and fast.
My day involved in making quick decisions with information to hand and providing alternatives when required to handle situations that arose frequently. A monthly Excel spreadsheet was maintained for chargeback purposes for various departments. A pool vehicle register calendar was my major tool for keeping an awareness of where vehicles were being allocated to and coming from. I had regular co-workers interaction and daily phone-ins with my supervisor. The hardest part of the job was the work load within the small amount of time and the most enjoyable was attempting to keep everyone moving and completing multiple tasks within short deadlines.
Pros
Thinking very quickly on your feet
Cons
Not completing some tasks prior to leaving

Future Uncertain
Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  Adelaide City Centre SA3 July 2016
When the oil price was high, Santos management was prepared to spend money on a pleasant office environment, on equipment, and on good salaries. Unfortunately - in my opinion - it never really made a sure transition, organizationally or culturally, from being a small, informal, local company to the large international company it aspired to be, with the associated proper professionalism and systemisation required to make that work.

In the past two years the drop in oil prices has hit Santos hard and there have been several rounds of redundancies. A new senior management team has been installed and it is likely that the company culture will change quite significantly. Hopefully the changes will be good ones, and the company will pull through, but until then there is no guarantee of anything.
Pros
Nice office, very good people to work with, central location in city
Cons
Terrible office politics, currently money is tight

Facilities Engineer / Operations Engineer (Former Employee) –  Roma, QLD21 October 2015
Santos assisted me to grow as an individual in the workforce.
The company made many bad decisions and as a result has required a massive slow down in project work and a cut of almost 50% of the workforce.
