    Pros

    The culture changed overnight, for the positive, upon becoming a stand-alone E&P company. Nice work/life balance - flexible scheduling options, including a 9/80 option. Competitive compensation and benefits with an effort to always stay aprised of changes and trends in the industry so that WPX remains competitive. Good opportunities for career development and advancement in addition to training opportunities, many of which are self-driven and free resources available to all employees. Great employees who genuinely care about the company, their co-workers and the communities in which they live and work.

    Cons

    While WPX Energy has a long history as the E&P business unit of Williams, it is still relatively new as a stand-alone E&P company and suffers some from brand recognition. Change is and will be common until WPX fully evolves to become its own company and not living in the shadows of Williams. This can also be seen as a positive - a unique opportunity to leverage what worked previously, but get rid of what didn't work and start from scratch building more effective and efficient processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be visible and approachable - it builds trust with your employees. Lead by example.

    Pros

    Great involvement in decision making processes. Good benefits, trying to get better. Good work-life balance. Management is making conscious efforts to improve the benefits package and bring it more in line with mainstream oil and gas.

    Cons

    Can be difficult to transfer within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better direction, less ambiguity. Focus on employees more.
