Was a great company, now in flux

Senior Analyst (Current Employee)
Woodbridge, NJ

Proso Slow and Steady wins the race (IE: you're not going to rise quickly unless you are in the rotational program)
o "Good ole boys" club (for some this might not be a "Pro"
   o Took care of their own
   o Takes about 3-4 years to "drink the Kool-aid / Bleed Green)
o Great retirement benefits (8% match on 6% 401k + pension)

Conso Spinning off / divesting all of NJ operations (Terminals, Retail (gas stations), Energy Marketing
o All the above "Pros" are in flux until there is clarity on new organization
o Several people are being pro-active and not waiting around to see if "NewCo" is better/worse

Advice to Senior Managemento The quicker the announcement, the better
o "Grunts" want security in the work place
    o As good as before, which was still a 4-6 year cycle of layoffs
o Stay in NJ
o Pension in NewCo would keep a lot of people around

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    This place is a mess. It's hard to describe it any other way.

    I have been working at Hess Corporation full-time


    Pros: Good pay, decent vacation, 9/80 schedules, on-site discounted Starbucks, gourmet… Cons: The company can't decide what it wants to do or where it wants to do it.
