I have been working at ConocoPhillips as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

fantastic support. Not a stressful place (depends on the project thou). the city has been built depending majorly on the company. so lot of recognition if you are an employee of the company. work location is pretty cool and comfortable. its not like, the manager is watching you, so you gotta act. you can take time, but show output.

Cons

weather of this place sucks. Not a place to live for the rest of our life. cafeteria sucks. the company should make a small food area for the employees lunch time. a few stalls like subway/chipotle/ BK, should make it plentiful. As the location has nothing at all, to have fun, a minimum of 50 mile ride needed for fun.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

you guys should organize better relations between employees. there is a possibility that clusters could be formed, which leads to politics.

    I have been working at ConocoPhillips as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    - Great exercise facilities and the main campus is pretty nice.
    - People are always available, even to the lowest of the low (e.g. undergraduate intern)
    - Very receptive to questions and I had two people in upper management who would come talk to me every once in a while without prompting which was nice as an undergraduate
    - Lots of room for real science in the geoscience areas due to budgets and the extent to which they vet new plays
    -All employees were very friendly and open, got tons of great advice from people who had worked at ConocoPhillips for anywhere from 3 to 30 years.
    -Houston (both a pro and a con) has all the features of a big city, nice museums, art galleries, parks, places to eat. Has some very impressive dog parks. Bill Archer dog park is by far the nicest dog park I have ever been to.

    Cons

    - Due to recent split from Phillips 66 ConocoPhillips is having difficulty defining themselves as a company. As the largest independent by far, they still largely operate like a major. Risk taking is rare, somewhat slow to move on new plays, etc. Pay for full-time employees is not as competitive as smaller independents but there is more stability

    - There are two campuses, Westlake (with BP) and the Main Campus. Main Campus has the workout area and you can feel somewhat isolated from the rest of the company at Westlake. Working at Westlake also makes using the facilities (like the gym, pool, soccer pitch, basketball court etc. ) difficult. Even though it's right across the street Houston traffic is atrocious and often a deterrent to driving to another campus as I-10 separates the two.

    -While I was there the new CEO talked a lot about defining a new culture of COP but never said anything substantial. Seemed to focus on treating people well which seemed strange as it was already an exceedingly friendly work environment, but never said anything concrete about how Conoco would compete with other independents on salary and benefits.

    -Houston, though nothing compared to LA traffic Houston traffic is nothing to scoff at. What would normally be a 15-20 minute drive in no or light traffic would often turn into 45 minutes to an hour and one afternoon took me nearly two hours. Houston is incredibly spread out and much of it is not worth seeing. Incredibly consumer centric; it's practically impossible to do anything in the Houston area without spending money or being at/near a mall. It's coastal plains so if you enjoy any kind of outdoor activity you pretty much have to give it up. No worthwhile mountain biking, outdoor climbing or bouldering, hiking. It's hot and humid for most of the year and unfortunately the Texas coast is just terrible, in part due to the fact that during the summer the Gulf of Mexico water temperature is typically hovering around 80 degrees Fahrenheit so it feels like swimming in warm bath water.
