Good company, poor direction, lack of structure

Engineer (Former Employee)

I worked at ConocoPhillips full-time

ProsThe company culture is relaxed for it's size, very similar to it's smaller independent competitors and company promotes it's SPIRIT values

ConsDifficult to get things done with multiple layers of bureacracy and lack of clear structure after the split. Office space very tight

Advice to Senior ManagementOpen up more office space or consolidate into a single buildling, focus on employee retention, be more transparent with corporate direction

– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

An incredible time with an incredible company

Global Supply Chain Intern (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at ConocoPhillips as an intern for less than a year

ProsConocoPhillips sponsored an incredible amount of collaboration within its supply chain function. Developing systems to look at total cost of ownership in its procurement, the company understood the importance of long-range planning.

ConsFinding itself as a new company, only about a year after the spinoff, Conoco is still figuring out who it is, what it wants to be, and how to wield its status as the largest independent in the industry.
