Wonderful professional environment to be a part of!

Account Manager (Former Employee)

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

ProsThe 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.

ConsThat 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 Senior ManagementGiven the Con comment above, the stock price has reacted quite positively as a result.

Best Internship experience ever

Houston, TX

I worked at Hess Corporation as an intern for less than a year

Pros- Great benefits

Although this is a very large corporation, Hess is like a big family. Everyone is very friendly, and management believes in treating its employees well.

ConsMy experience was very pleasant. I honestly do not see cons with working with Hess.

Great Company

I have been working at Hess Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat company, with an exciting growth plan. Senior management is accessible, and concerned about the culture of Hess.

ConsHard company to get into, unless you have level of expertise in an area that's in demand. Not a lot of growth opportunities.

Agent

Agent (Current Employee)
Woodbridge, NJ

I have been working at Hess Corporation part-time for more than 3 years

ProsYou have an opportunity to learn so much, either by training classes or if you could help out in another position. (as a part timer)

Cons1. You will have to apply for a position more than once in order for Management to take you serious.
2. They will hire outside before hiring within.

Advice to Senior ManagementPart timers should get first choice for the position that they applied for as long as they qualify for that position. Don't assume just because you have a part time job with Hess that you would not want a full time position. For example If you have helped that department out and a position comes up then Management should consider you for that position before taking an outsider.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
