Stimulating and Challenging
I am an Application and Integration Support Consultant and my typical day revolves around checking mail for reported and logged issues from Engen Affiliate Countries. Checking my Remedy calls and resolving issues. Assisting the Business with Recons, running reports and updating Views/Stored Procedures and Jobs in SQL. Running queries and update/inserts in Oracle using PL/SQL. Searching SAP SD for transactions as part of the recon and checking on PI J2SE Adapter jobs and payloads. In my time here I have been challenged on the Applications that I already knew learning many new things in the process and I have also been introduced to other applications and more efficient ways of doing things. I have been involved in a number of projects which has given me insights into other aspects of Information Systems and the different roles and responsibilities associated with them. I have learned and benefitted from my interactions with Management as well as my colleagues who have willing shared their knowledge and experience contributing to my growth both personal and professional. I have enjoyed travelling the various Affiliate Countries and meeting new people, customs, cultures and languages and the expercience has been richly rewarding.

A great company to work for but unfortunately I was only a contractor. Experienced a lot of Africa while with Engen. Unfortunately, our Labour Laws prohibit a contractor being employed for more than 3 years at a time.
ProsTravel into Africa

Productive and fun to work there
A typical day at work: A lot of hard work was put in, together with training to juggle around at the same time, but exciting. What I learned: operations fundamentals, HSSE, Chemical operations chemistry and principles, Refinery economics and products scheduling and more.. Management: Management was good knowledge wise and very driven, Work place culture: That was the best place to work, very structured, people were like family to one another, it felt so warm that you wouldn't realize when you don't get recognized and compensated correctly. The hardest part of the Job: when you don't get necessary support from you peers as well as management. The most enjoyable part of the job: When I was thrown in a deep end, given opportunities to lead my team during critical paths activities e.g. Shutdowns and projects, being trusted at junior level based on my caliber and work ethics.
ProsTraining and development was best and company has excellet values.
ConsManagement overlooked when it was time for promotions, in a nutshell - favorism

They are awesome
They are awesome but can do better with manager salaries to accommodate what risks management goes through and also give managers a chance with provident fund benefits.
