    I have been working at ConocoPhillips full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits package was rated independently as the top package in the Energy industry. The Pension plan and 401k matching is generous. Bartlesville is a small enough town you don't have to commute an hour across town.

    Cons

    The Energy industry is subject to swings in resource prices. This does lead to some degree of uncertainty in the job market as well.

    Advice to Management

    Keep keeping your employees informed abut changes to the business. Especially in uncertain times, the information provided is valuable.
