    Pros

    Coworkers are genuinely helpful, ready to work hard, and want to make Hess better. Management is ready to listen to good ideas. Many perks for those in the corporate office (Houston).

    Cons

    The company is recovering from restructuring and employee departures, which means growing pains.

    I worked at Hess Corporation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Got me into a good industry that I will likely stay in. The industry is booming and a great place to be in. The office is in a Good location.

    Cons

    There is a Lack of development culture at the company. There is also a culture to Manage upward and worry less about anybody under you. There is also a vibe of constant judgement. My first boss was awful and the main reason for leaving.

    Upper management has noidea how the field operations are run and they try to run it as a factory, not as a day to day field operations.

    I have been working at Hess Corporation

    Pros

    At times, opportunities do present themselves to take on complex projects and roles.

    Cons

    Management is "plays favorites" with who gets the complex projects and roles. It is not always based on merit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of going on a power trip, actually "see" all of the talent around you. Everybody deserves an opportunity.
