Pros

Some of the best Benefits and Salary in the industry (and entire private sector).

Cons

Very cut throat. "UP or OUT" mentality. You're ranked against your peers and the bottom 15-20% are pushed out the door. No work/life balance at all. Be ready to work 50+ hours per week.

Advice to Management

Take a look at the corporate culture you're creating. If you don't want top talent to jump ship after 3-5 years, look at making some culture changes. You're losing a long term talent battle.

    Pros

    High Salaries, Great coworkers, Very diverse workforce, Excellent retirement benefits, Allows employees to quickly move up the ranks, Very safety oriented environment

    Cons

    Poor hours, Little to no recognition, No transparent ranking system, Employees do not control their own moves within the company, Superficial improvement programs, "Good Old Boy" mentality, Out of date benefits

    Advice to Management

    People are promoted too quickly and without the proper training to be able to lead efficient teams. This leads to a poor managing system all the way up the chain of command. Additionally, the work hours are not comparable to the rest of the industry leaders. It seems as if the benefits have not been updated for the younger workforce and are still geared to the baby-boomer generation.

    Pros

    Good salary, job stability, Houston is an affordable city. Other energy companies do pay better than ExxonMobil, as a note.

    Cons

    Inconsistent hiring practices, very political, bad middle-management. This is a place where you are hired for life, and it shows in the behavior of the people, the lack of excitement, the mentality that no matter what you do, you won't get fired. If you want a stable job with little creativity for the rest of your life, this is the place.

    Advice to Management

    Not every good employee is a good manager. Promote intelligently. Learn how to fire those that just aren't up to par. Provide more opportunities for employees to highlight their strengths.
