    I have been working at ConocoPhillips full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Culture has vastly improved since the CEO. Compensation and benefits are great!

    Cons

    Upper management is working diligently to improve the culture. There is still improvement needed with lower management. The culture has not fully taken hold with all levels.

    I have been working at ConocoPhillips full-time

    Pros

    The Benefits are really good. The health insurance, vacation, sick time, comp time (exempt employees) as well as the yearly VCIP if the company does well makes it very much worth while.

    Cons

    Hard to move up. There are a lot of baby boomers and the mentality of "its my way or the highway". Some supervisors will give you some free reign to think outside the box, but they are far and few between.

    I have been working at ConocoPhillips full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The money is good especially if you're coming in as an experienced hire. The potential for advancement is up to you and what your goals and interests are.

    Cons

    This is an oil company. If you don't mind what that entails then you're fine. However there's too much involvement in their political views which are spoon fed to the workers here in the US.
    I like to come to work to work not to engage and immerse myself in the government politics of the moment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management needs to realize that some topics have nothing to do with the work at hand and they need to push the idea that although everyone should have their own opinion the workplace may not necessarily be the place to express ones personal lifestyle or political views.

    Pros

    The company culture is relaxed for it's size, very similar to it's smaller independent competitors and company promotes it's SPIRIT values

    Difficult to get things done with multiple layers of bureacracy and lack of clear structure after the split. Office space very tight

    Open up more office space or consolidate into a single buildling, focus on employee retention, be more transparent with corporate direction

    Former Employee - Contractor in Bartlesville, OK

    I worked at ConocoPhillips as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    I enjoyed the work and the resources the company provided in order to be successful.

    Cons

    I did not like the politics and how there was office bullying in the department. If your group has over thirty analysts and associates, then watch out for clicks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm optimistic about this company, but see many things that need to change in order before people will be truly satisfied with their jobs.
