    Former Employee - IT Intern in Bartlesville, OK

    I worked at ConocoPhillips as an intern for less than a 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.

    I have been working at ConocoPhillips full-time

    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.

    Pros

    Office culture in my department is excellent.

    Cons

    It is a huge company, so a lot of times there is red tape, things may take a little longer to get processed, and you get to see only a small picture. However, COP is rich with opportunities to move around and experience other facets if you choose.

    I worked at ConocoPhillips as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great availability to explore other career paths if so desired, employee compensation is great even on the intern level, and employees have great interaction on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Structural Design is contracted out to design firms that focus solely on engineering. Prefers employees with greater than entry level knowledge of structural design and analysis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Older management can be resistant to new and younger employees.

    Pros

    The company provides opportunities to work across various business units. Global presence.

    Cons

    Annual performance review ratings is forced ranked and not always tied to performance but how well you get along with your boss and co-workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Paternity leave should be considered for male employees. As a male it was shunned for me to take two weeks off of paid vacation for the birth of my first child.

    Exciting company that values employees. Great employees and work environment.

    Cons

    Location - not the best. Long term employees don't have desire to grow - and stale mate the company.

    I have been working at ConocoPhillips full-time

    Pros

    The Benefits are really good. The health insurance, vacation, sick time, comp time (exempt employees) as well as the yearly VCIP if the company does well makes it very much worth while.

    Cons

    Hard to move up. There are a lot of baby boomers and the mentality of "its my way or the highway". Some supervisors will give you some free reign to think outside the box, but they are far and few between.
