    I have been working at Pioneer Natural Resources full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Provides plenty of training opportunities and supports employees who want to further their education at night. Flexible work schedule, good benefits package including employee stock purchase plan, 401(k) matching, and bonuses.

    Cons

    When the price of oil fluctuates, projects can be shelved quickly, making for a very dynamic environment for planning. Uses a lot of contractors for areas outside of their main expertise which can provide unique challenges for support teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing a good job, keep it up.

    Current Employee - Geoscientist in Irving, TX

    I have been working at Pioneer Natural Resources full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay, Some very smart individuals working to merge technical ability with economic outcomes, Permian Basin asset and a Denver office. Work-life-balance and work environment can be tremendous, depending on department and middle-management. There are some very high quality managers in the company who are exceptional at navigating corporate chaff and maintaining focus on long term goals.

    Cons

    Management drives many inefficiencies and has a very top-down approach to career development. This heavily influences opportunities for career growth. Department specific tendency for some to become protective of their "areas of expertise". Increasingly uniform academic diversity. Communication within this company is exceptionally poor with some exceptions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Autocratic perspectives and micromanagement abound. Take a bit more laissez faire approach and let your employees show you what they can do rather than dictate what they will do, and worst, what they are to discover.
