    It seems as though I found the most vindictive group of middle managers on Earth.

    Pros

    Compensation is generally good if you have an engineering degree.

    Cons

    Variable compensation is tied more to company performance against industry peers than individual performance. Employee ranking system rewards favorites via subjective ranking and results in poor morale throughout. Two employees in the same group shared their rankings with me. One was given a promotion and high ranking. The other was given a poor ranking and severed the following month. The severed employee was always working, got along well with others and was recognized in the industry as an expert in his field. The employee that was promoted spent the majority of his time on Facebook and Craig's List...and is now in middle management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management at ConocoPhillips doesn't take advice. No need to offer it here.
