    I have been working at WPX Energy full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The salary is competitive and they do promote work life balance. For anyone in IT the career path is a short one, the structure is different than most companies and while learning new skills are encouraged there is little opportunity to use those skills at WPX. The people there are great for the most part, co workers can really make a break a job and the people there are pretty awesome.

    Cons

    Not a good place for anyone seeking to move up the ladder. Structure is confusing and not conducive to the employees, interns coming straight out of college would only be satisfied working here for a year or two then you'd go to a company that provides more opportunity. Employee feedback isn't valued, not in IT or at the company in general. Witnessed a number of things that would be considered gross misconduct when I was there, they were all reported but no action taken. The company preferred that the employees going through it quit instead of rectifying the situation. Then bad mouthed the employees that quit, pretty unprofessional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Specific to IT, give employees actual titles instead of roles. IT, like most of the organization is very top heavy.
