    Great Company, Great Benefits

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsFlexible 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.

    ConsWhile 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.

    Great company to work for, very employee focused.

    Project Manager (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsCoP 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.

    ConsLiving 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 Senior ManagementThe best leaders ar not always the ones who can talk the most and the loudest.

    Too much politics

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Bartlesville, OK

    ProsThe money is good especially if you're coming in as an experienced hire. The potential for advancement is up to you and what your goals and interests are.

    ConsThis is an oil company. If you don't mind what that entails then you're fine. However there's too much involvement in their political views which are spoon fed to the workers here in the US.
    I like to come to work to work not to engage and immerse myself in the government politics of the moment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe management needs to realize that some topics have nothing to do with the work at hand and they need to push the idea that although everyone should have their own opinion the workplace may not necessarily be the place to express ones personal lifestyle or political views.

    Very Fair

    N/A (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate a much flatter organization.

    Good Place to work

    Analyst (Current Employee)
    Bartlesville, OK

    ProsInteresting work. Good benefits and compensation.

    ConsLocated in a small town where there are few good places to eat or things to do. If you are young and single this might not be the best place for you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest more in making this community a desirable place to live.

    Good Times

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)
    Tacoma, WA

    ProsI just like the laid back friendly environment. You get minimum wage as a CSR but its a fun friendly enviroment

    ConsPay, even as you become a manager pay is bad. I was offered management but its like a dollar or two more and I would end up with way more responisiblity

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep on keeping on
