    Interaction with HSE and field personnel. Good networking and opportunity for knowledge building of oil and gas industry.

    Current state of oil and gas industry is shaky at best. During turbulent times, the training department is usually the first to be cut.

    Pros

    Excellent company culture, which starts at the top.

    Cons

    Poor communication via Kelly Services and/or ConocoPhillips. I am given no idea what's most likely going to happen to my job as company moves into new building.

    Advice to Management

    Need reviews to & from contractor, Kelly Services, and ConocoPhillips.

    Pros

    Big independent oil company. Diverse portfolio. Great new hire training. Chances to work on different projects. Good pay. Highest vanguard company match.

    Cons

    Little bit bureaucracy. Rotation program doesn't work in the way they designed. It's hard to rotate to a group you like. Different business unit has different culture. The baby boomers are very nice to international staff. The young group are not that friendly to international staffs. International staffs were laid off first during 2015 downturn.

    Pros

    Great people, challenging work, good benefits

    Still trying to figure out how to operate as an independent oil company, continues to be a very unsettling environment with more layoffs pending which creates a very cut throat environment seemed to hire too many people too fast

    Pros

    Great internship program. Project was not up to snuff, but as with any internship program, it's what you make with your free time that counts.

    Cons

    It's a big organization - make sure you surround yourself with challenging people.
