    Pros

    If you are considered a 'top-tier" performer, your total compensation will match or exceed that of most in industry.

    Cons

    Performance is not always fairly assessed. Compensation is largely tied to performance, so overall compensation may end up below industry average if your manager gives you a poor review. Leadership opportunities at Newfield are given only to smart engineers, not individuals with leadership or people skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate functional middle managers - they have no true signature authority and therefore cannot make decisions without senior management approval. Therefore, they are merely another layer of bureaucracy. Also, a company the size of Newfield cannot afford to be as risk-averse as management is - in order to continue growing, the company must be willing to invest in high-potential opportunities, even when there is uncertainty.
