I worked at ConocoPhillips

Pros

COP has a good work life balance, Great benefits package, and the people are great to work with. With such a large company, there are a lot of diverse opportunities and functions you could work in to build a cross-functional expertise - or an area expertise.

Cons

Work life balance could get out of balance quickly if you move up in the organization. They could pay more competitively in terms of a base salary and especially with salary increases. The career progression tended to be slow, simply because of size.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve career development opportunities, actively search the ranks to speed career progression and keep up with competitive pay.

    I worked at ConocoPhillips

    Pros

    Really talked up work/balance to compensate for average remuneration. Early career females lapped this up and some practically begged for us to offer them a job, even when jobs were plentiful.

    Cons

    Sometime after the merger, it got to where getting results no longer matter Engineering style management control. Little empowerment exists. Poor transparency from supervisory management. Management so wrapped up in execution that they lack of vision to see business landscape. Herd mentality. Low appetite for risk. Over levaged (too much debt). Deal taker, not a deal maker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start with changing the CEO. The new person at the top can implement changes to see if the Street believes.

    Pros

    Huge opportunity to explore and learn about energy markets and how they are traded
    Traders here are true experts and most are willing to help.

    Cons

    If trading is your goal, it can take a serious time investment to become one at COP (think 5+ years out of school). The company likes to build traders up in their mold and are in no rush to have you do so (the one exception may be with the power traders where you start off as either a scheduler or 24-hour trader).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to develop incorporate new hires/interns into the world of trading as early and often as possible. Interns should sit out on the trade floor, not in cubicles.
