Work environment racing towards worst.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New Delhi

I have been working at Cairn Energy

ProsTill date there are excellent opportunities available for skill enhancements with on the job and inhouse and outside training opportunities for all technical employees.

ConsPathetic work envoronment with no transparency and favourites securing all the promotions and better pay rise. Plagiarism rules and honest workers are never recognised.

Advice to Senior ManagementOrganisation is bleeding profusely, so look after honest workers otherwise organisation will be left with sycophants.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Dynamic Fast Moving Company With Great Historic Track Record

Reservoir Engineer (Former Employee)
Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)

I worked at Cairn Energy full-time for more than 3 years

ProsCEO was very inclusive.
Wins were celebrated together.
Engineers & field workers were given autonomy to make decisions even if they were wrong.
Largely a can do attitude without too much constraint to procedures as being sacrosanct

ConsSome of the less able corporate types promoted ahead of the can-do engineers
The culture was becoming more self important at senior management level with Indian success
Some of the top engineers both geophysical & drilling moved on
Not sure if the current CEO has the ability to follow the previous CEO

Advice to Senior ManagementAs the ex CEO would have said - You are only as good as your last game.
Cairn - your last game was Greenland. It was a 3-0 defeat.
Your last cup final was the Indian sale to Vedanta - it went to extra time, then extra extra time. Its not clear to the fans which side won but it might have been the referee in the shape of the Indian Government.
Make sure you value your engineers and try and retain the knowledge within the company
