    Pros

    Excellent benefits and leadership. Values wellness of its workforce.

    Cons

    Somewhat bureaucratic; often times, change requires the same engagement as was required when the company was an integrated major. Taking a long time to become the nimble independent that we strive to become.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue developing a more innovative culture

    Pros

    COP walks the talk with safety and environmental stewardship. Always supports the continuing education of employees. Overall good management and opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    You generally have to move out to move up. (Relocate). Some managers can be way too frugal. Health benefits are just ok.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication could be improved at the local level. Health benefit quality and cost are just ok and could be improved.

    Pros

    Good and stable company to work for, relatively small size and hence lots of responsibilities. nice project to work on as well.

    Cons

    Production engineering is badly defined and lack of direction from the top. You can be lost as a production engineer in the company and potentially not develop some essential PE skills

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to define production engineering role more, start training your staff and develop their core skills. Communication could also be improved from the top.

    Current Employee - Business Analyst in Houston, TX

    I have been working at ConocoPhillips full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits package is by far the best i have seen in my professional career. If you do a good job and hopefully not get bored of what you do, this is a great company to work for, for a long time and possibly retire.

    Cons

    The base salary is very low when compared to other competitors in the market. However, the most frustrating thing is the culture for career prospects; career advancement is very political and you get the sense that everyone has their own agenda in meetings. Not the best place for a young energetic individual seeking challenges and disruptive solutions to technological issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please do away with the Performance Goals...it makes people wander off chasing projects just for the sake of fulfilling their yearly goals. It doesn't encourage cohesion for shared goals.

    Zero to none. COP empowers employees to achieve personal growth through personal initiative.
