    Pros

    The company was very focused and mentoring, training and developing the leadership team. Rewarded for high performance with high potential bonus program.

    Cons

    After many years of hard work with a great team of people, Hess made the decision to divest downstream businesses including retail and many of us parted ways.

    Pros

    My experience at Hess was overwhelmingly positive. It has a great blend of professionalism and a sense that you are cared about and appreciated as an individual.

    Cons

    I do not really have any cons. Like all companies, it isn't perfect but it really is a great place to work.

    Pros

    Hess has great benefits including competitive 401k match and pension plan. I also appreciated the people who worked at Hess.

    Cons

    I was laid off at Hess due to the proxy battle. I would have stayed with the company if that had not happened.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any advice to management. As I watch all of the current Hess gas stations turn into Speedway gas stations I wonder how much longer Hess will be in business.

    Pros

    Great people and a great experience. Many people built their base careers in the oil industry here at this company.

    Cons

    Upper leadership lost touch with the workers in the field and opened the door for a proxy fight from aggressive activist stockholders

    Pros

    Fair starting wage, regular schedule, raise every year (depending on performance).

    Cons

    Be prepared to dress warmly in winter and to sweat in summer. Also, have some patience as in any customer service job, it's not always easy to please 100% of your customers.
