    Pros

    Out standing company with a great collection of team oriented people. Best company I've ever seen for staying cutting edge with respect to HR and Team Project skills. Fun place...

    Cons

    It's out of Bakersfield. That can take a little getting use to. Bakersfield is a great place to raise a family.

    Safety is the number one concern. They create a saftey culture that will change they way you look at everything.

    Cons

    Aera energy is only in California. So relocating is limited. California is not friendly to an oil company. Lots of rules and regulations.

    I have been working at Aera Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Aera is a strong believer of the lean and continuous improvement process, They technically driven; almost all of the companies management across all disciplines are engineers. They give employees with 0-5 years experience with the company 4 weeks paid vacation (not including the 2 weeks paid sick leave).

    Cons

    The main con that I've experienced is that Aera operates only in California (Headquartered in the Bakersfield area). If you aren't from the area, it is difficult to settle here.

    Pros

    Great benefits and they hold true to the work-life balance with the 9/80 schedule

    Cons

    Company is focused on engineers and therefore forgets about the value that business segments add to the business, as is reflected in the overall culture of the company.
