    Exciting company that values employees. Great employees and work environment.

    Location - not the best. Long term employees don't have desire to grow - and stale mate the company.

    Grow and transition well. Continue to develop internal employees.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours and a committment to employee development. Generous health and welfare benefits as well as comprehensive retirement planning services. Lots of opportunity for advancement and a culture built around safety.

    Cons

    While we are experiencing a shift in culture, there still seems to be a lot of red-tape and politics happening. Not with the executives, but within the middle leadership levels.

    I have been working at ConocoPhillips full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    CoP is a great place to work. Its a very company oriented company with great benefits including a multi-million dollar fitness center complete with full size gymnasium, lap pool, soccer field, jogging trail, great weight room, large cardio room, and several class/workout rooms for spin classes, zumba classes, etc... The 9/80 program allows employess to be off every other Friday and flex hours give the employees to arrive and leave work on their own schedule. CoP is in the process of building a day care facility across the street from the main campus. The company airplane shuttle allows employees to travel to the most common destination without having to go through the hassles of the airport terminal. From what I can tell compensation is competitive. With locations all over the world, there are lots of opportunities.

    Cons

    Living and working in traffic-centric Houston makes the work/life balance more difficult than at some of the companies smaller sites, many of which also have very nice fitness facilities and programs. CoP is a large corporation and suffers from much of the red tape that keeps the company from responding quickly to changes in the business environment and stifles individual creativity and risk taking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The best leaders ar not always the ones who can talk the most and the loudest.

    Pros

    Friendly people, very respectful towards people, a lot of opportunity for career change, good base salary and wonderful benefits.

    Cons

    Conservative "Texas" culture, very hierarchical (levels start at 10 and go up to 30 something), lack of trust and lots of micromanagement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a much flatter organization.

    Former Employee - IT Intern in Houston, TX

    I worked at ConocoPhillips as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The IT department is going in a great direction, especially for an energy company. The atmosphere in the company as a whole is also very warming and hospitable.

    Cons

    Since the split with Phillips 66 things have been changing but there is still a huge 80's corporate feel to the company. IT is much more up to date, but the company still has some work to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Great work perks (on-site clinic, multiple dining locations, on-site soccer field, Olympic pool, and 3 story gym). Also, work hours are pretty straight-forward.

    Cons

    Pros

    After spinning off the downstream Phillips66, the E&P session grows very well recently. New management is very open to suggestions and change.

    Cons

    It may be not very stable due to its smaller size and no mid and down streams to compensate when the oil price goes down

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more incentive
