I worked at ConocoPhillips

Pros

Beautiful facility, pleasant environment, the people who are nice are REALLY nice.

Cons

No true vision or plans for managing retail & marketing, priorities and goals for current year change without explanation or time for annual plan to gain traction, very political, innovation and creative problem solving not encouraged, department managers hired and retained despite poor performance in managing staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to separate downstream from upstream. Downstream will never get the focus it deserves when competing against the high profitability of Exploration and Production.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote true leaders or develop leadership skills in existing management.
    Stop stripping employees of the power to make decisions.
    Adhere to developed safety procedures and involve employees in the development of new ones.
    Hire more employees instead of increasing work loads.
