    Good interdepartment communication between different departments

    Create more flexibility in the work schedule. Allow people to work at home - perhaps 1 day a month.

    Pros

    Nice benefit package, nice stock, some really great people who really would like to make a difference.

    Cons

    Don't look for advancement unless you are willing to kiss some butt, no leadership skills required. Probably the least effective managers and supervisors, they are given very little decision rights. Tone at the top is definitely not what the core values state, least moral company I've work for. Not interested in new ideas, so if you are creative and forward thinking it will be lost on this company. If you are a skilled robot things will be great for you.

    Advice to Management

    Look at how you promote, not always the best candidates. Be open to new ideas, you have some brillant minds, don't lose them. Micro-managers should not be in C-Suite. Take advantage of the knowledge, skills and ideas experienced workers bring use that to your advantage.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Continental Resources (Oklahoma) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I believe base salaries are in line with industry, I have worked in this company for almost five years and have observed the headcount quadruple in in that time spam The Company has retained certain small company atmosphere but bureaucracy from management is starting to interfere normal workflow of activities. You will have some flexibility and a descent work environment depending of which group you belong to.

    Cons

    Career Progression not clearly defined, especially for Petrotechical staff, salaries and position titles are not commensurate with the level of experience. You will find Engineers with the same education and level of experience with anywhere from Senior to Staff positions and even managers with as little 4 years of experience. It appears that the search for new talent has set new limits for salaries and titles being offered to new hires while senior employees are left behind and not brought up to speed.

    Advice to Management

    Need to adjust salaries and level of experience among employees. IMO Engineers with 4-7 years of Experience and BS only can have same salary or position title as 10-12 yrs. of experience with MS degrees. Might need to revise total compensation package to put more weight on actual cash than stock grants. Is not about stock price but about valuation

    I have been working at Continental Resources (Oklahoma) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Intelligent employees, involved senior management, people get things done and innovate daily, and it's a fantastic opportunity for growth at any level in your career. Core company values are still in tact even from what the company first began, and that focus has continued to remain.

    Cons

    Not much to say - lots of opportunities to contribute, work hard, have fun, and learn each day. If you dislike that, this might not be the best place.
