    I worked at ConocoPhillips full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company has wonderful compensation, benefits, training and career opportunities. It prides itself on operating safely and that really helps the bottom line. It is also a nice environment to work in.

    Cons

    Majority of the opportunities in the Finance function are in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. That is not a very attractive area in regards to obtaining young talent, as it is a retirement community. Also, please just be very mindful of who you select to be in management. Some people, no matter how good they maybe as individual contributors, are just not suited to be supervisors, directors, or even managers in some cases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The benefits and compensation are great. Please just be very mindful of who you select to be in management. Some people, no matter how good they maybe as individual contributors, are just not suited to be supervisors, directors, or even managers in some cases. They are selfish and don't always have the ideals and goals of adding value to the ConocoPhillips brand. This also will run off many talented people.

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

    Pros

    Corporate culture values putting people first and it truly shows. Everyone is incredibly friendly and helpful. The project I was given was meaningful and gave me the opportunity to learn quite a bit.

    Cons

    There really weren't any issues in the work place but there were some with the location. Bartlesville is a small town with little night life and weekend activities.

    Pros

    Culture has vastly improved since the CEO. Compensation and benefits are great!

    Cons

    Upper management is working diligently to improve the culture. There is still improvement needed with lower management. The culture has not fully taken hold with all levels.

    Pros

    The company culture, values, and benefits are first class. They treat all employees well and really value their people. They have done a good job at staying competitive with the industry and also have listened to the employee opinions when deciding on corporate wide changes. Ryan Lance (CEO) is a good leader and has made some much needed changes.

    Cons

    Like all major corporations, you can encounter typical politics and bureaucracy at times.
