Mediocre place for a career

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Houston, TX

ProsAt ConocoPhillips, in most work groups the work/life balance is pretty good: if you need time off for vacation or if you are sick, supervisors are usually very understanding. The benefits (health, vision, perscription) are very good and there is a big push toward over-all wellness (physical, mental). Very nice gym facility at the main complex and a lot of outside programs to get involved in. (Rodeo Run, United Way, Employee Networks)

ConsThere are many layers of management at ConocoPhillips and that makes it extremely hard to get any work done or to feel any sense of ownership of a role. While it is possible to get a new role and develop professionally at ConocoPhillips, there are a lot of politics at play and there are Talent Management Teams (TMT's) that play a huge role in placing employees in new roles that are not always in the employees best interest and development, it's usually for the benefit of the company. Promotions are on a strict time-in-grade and performance rating schedule, so for a strong performer it can be a lot of years between promotions. This makes it very dificult to have a strong career at the company unless you are a favorite of the TMT's or have a strong supporter in management. The norm is to have very weak/poor supervisors or managers. They are working supervisors so they don't have the time, energy or interest in developing employees. Most of the poor treatment of employees comes from top management and employees are seen as very expendable.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagers and supervisors need to have better training. Remove some layers of management so it's easier to get things done. Make it easier to get promotions.

    The pay is comparable, but the benefits are very accommodating and geared towards retirement.

    IT Analyst (Former Employee) Bartlesville, OK

    I worked at ConocoPhillips


    Pros: As mentioned earlier, Retirement and benefits. Cons: The usual issues that come with a large corporation. Too much "red tape" and communication between departments is often lacking. The upcoming split… Advice to Senior Management: I have no advice for future development as the damage… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
