  1. Had the potential for opportunity, but the company is set in its old ways and not open to change.

    Pros

    Many nice people, opportunity to travel, large sign-on bonus. Competitive salary.

    Cons

    Many people are hired and promoted based upon who they know (friends of the Hess family) regardless of talent, has a "mom and pop" mentality, yet attempts to operate globally. Mr. Hess operates the company like a spoiled child.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure...which has already happened

    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.

  11. Great Operations team

    Pros

    Great operations team and good people in the field.

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue who actually mahes the House of Hess, field and operations personnel.
