    I worked at Hess Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They take EXCELLENT care of their employees. During the giant flood in Minot, ND 2011, they offered free storage units to all affected by the flood. They were also offering 0% interest loans to rebuild your house. The schedule was great...8 on 6 off schedule for the last year or so. I think they are shorthanded now and went back to a Mon-Fri.

    Cons

    The main office for in the field work is in Tioga...no one wants to live in Tioga. I lived in Minot and drove 1.25 hrs everyday...one way. That wasn't paid for, but they gave us company vehicles with gas cards, which was nice. The other con was with management. It sounds like everything is fixed now according to a friend that still works there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When someone leaves on good terms, and you tell them they will still have a position there if things don't work out (relocated out of state for a woman)...please stick to your word.

    I worked at Hess Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The organization was full from top to bottom with leading industry professionals at each level. How many corporations today value their employees by offering a tradition pension plan along with a 401 k match? Very few, but Hess does! Communication about the goals and current status were frequent and beneficial.

    Cons

    That John Hess and the BOD gave into Wall Street resulting in the parting of all non-E&P business entities. Company has went from a diverse group of affiliated entities to one solely focused on E&P that is tied to the price of oil.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Given the Con comment above, the stock price has reacted quite positively as a result.
