    Pros

    opportunity to work independently. May get high profile assignments.

    Cons

    Too much politics across managements. The company is not technology drive, but a follower to technologies from other companies when they are piloted in field.

    Advice to Management

    Rating and ranking need to be more transparent.

    Pros

    Flexible environment, nice facilities. Salaries seem to be high but I don't have enough information. Currently is experiencing a transformation which aims improve the company's image. Current involvement with unconventional reservoir provides interesting experience

    Cons

    Managers are not very technical. Goals are not well defined sometimes. Activity in conventional reservoirs is diminishing which may be a problem

    Advice to Management

    Improve collaboration between teams

    Pros

    Salary is good for a college new hire, excellent benefits and incentive programs. I enjoy the people I work with.

    Cons

    It's in the middle of nowhere- I really dislike bartlesville and I, and nearly everyone I work with, commutes. I have heard many new hires say they are already planning their next career move solely because of the location and I believe COP will have issues with retention once people begin retiring.

    I also don't agree with the way salaries are handled. You are basically awarded raises off your years of employment and not the workload you take on. I don't find it fair that employees make the same salary as an exceptional employee when doing half the work with mediocre results.

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits while still having work-life balance. The people are generally nice and not competitive with each other.
    People are rarely fired, even if they don't do their job.

    Cons

    Slow moving with regards to change and improvement. Middle management suffers from "group think" and lets office politics dictate business decisions, often wasting a lot of money and time.
    People are rarely fired, even if they don't do their job.

    Advice to Management

    Fire people more often so that people will stop being complacent and start doing their jobs.

  11. Large global company with very diverse culture across regions
