    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.

    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.

    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

    Former Employee - Global Supply Chain Intern  in  Houston, TX
    Former Employee - Global Supply Chain Intern in Houston, TX

    Pros

    ConocoPhillips 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.

    Cons

    Finding 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.
