I have been working at Whiting Petroleum as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

A very open, communicative, science driven oil and gas company. Better science equals better wells, hands down. The CEO has a great vision for the future of the company and all I see is more growth in the future.

Cons

Recently changed bonus structure to align more with other petroleum companies. Basically, this means the bonus is still competitive, but less than what it was before. If you didn't know the old system, then this isn't so much of a con.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pushing innovation and keeping employees happy are great ways to make a happy employee work force. That being said, the old bonus system was innovative and motivating, being on par with all the other companies' bonuses, that makes the company just another fish in the sea.
