I have been working at WPX Energy full-time for more than 5 years

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.

    I worked at WPX Energy full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    New leadership should bring needed modern changes to their strategic direction. After being under Williams' wing for so long, they've had a hard time breaking free and identifying themselves.

    Cons

    Lack of strategic planning and no clear goals. Little room for growth and good old boy network keep the company in the dark ages.
