    Pros

    For the most part good people work there. CEO is a true leader and has admirable traits. He's leading the company in the right direction.

    Cons

    Incompetence is rewarded. New leaders in HR and IT lack skill and qualifications to do their jobs. They were promoted due to cronyism. Lower level employees, the worker bees, are the ones with the real talent. Employee morale is low as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Take a close look at how the HR and IT leadership has been put into place. Cronyism exists across both organizations

    Pros

    Flexible, making the right changes in today's price environment, decent pay, great retirement benefits, solid new leadership in CEO and COO

    Cons

    There is significant change going on at WPX, while these changes are necessary it would behoove management to make these transitions as smooth as possible for existing employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the changes coming. WPX can become a major player with this new direction.

    Pros

    Great people and environment. Employee friendly

    Cons

    Politics in certain areas has caused a void of leadership. Company direction does not seem real solid. Information technology is now being ran by a group of HR cronies with no idea at all about technology. There is an influx which is demoralizing as more qualified people are available.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in solid leaders in all areas that have expertise and can be strategic in the company's success.

    Cons

    There were not any cons to working at such a great company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.


  9. Decent company to work for, but at the low end of industry compensation packages.

    Pros

    Many younger people in management, making it a relatively casual work atmosphere. The company tries to give a lot back to local communities.

    Cons

    Ranks low in industry compensation packages; lower pay and less vacation than competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees; we have good ideas but don't have management (and especially upper management) support in implementing them.
