    I have been working at ConocoPhillips full-time

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good. Benefits (health insurance, bonuses, pension, etc.) are decent. If you are an engineer or geologist, you get better incentives than other functions (restricted stocks, etc). The company has 9/80s, which means some people get every other Friday off (but not everybody).

    Cons

    It's an uninspired place to work. Nobody loves their job at ConocoPhillips.There are lots of bureaucrats. The company is always a few years behind in technology. Don't be fooled by their recruitment tour or flashy website. The company doesn't have a strong brand or cohesive identity - people usually think I work at a gas station. ConocoPhillips doesn't even own gas stations, but doesn't put any effort into managing their reputation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Catch up with the rest of the 21st century and become a brand employees can associate themselves with.

    I worked at ConocoPhillips full-time

    Pros

    The company culture is relaxed for it's size, very similar to it's smaller independent competitors and company promotes it's SPIRIT values

    Cons

    Difficult to get things done with multiple layers of bureacracy and lack of clear structure after the split. Office space very tight

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up more office space or consolidate into a single buildling, focus on employee retention, be more transparent with corporate direction

    Former Employee - Global Supply Chain Intern in Houston, TX

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

    Pros

    ConocoPhillips sponsored an incredible amount of collaboration within its supply chain function. Developing systems to look at total cost of ownership in its procurement, the company understood the importance of long-range planning.

    Cons

    Finding itself as a new company, only about a year after the spinoff, Conoco is still figuring out who it is, what it wants to be, and how to wield its status as the largest independent in the industry.
