    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, pay is top of the scale, lots of opportunities if you work in the right part of the company

    Cons

    Tremendous change going on - company is reshaping itself into an E&P only company

    Advice to Management

    Leadership at Hess should be more aggressive about holding themselves and upper management accountable. Make better hiring decisions on the leaders being brought in to make change.

    Pros

    They hire ex-offenders with much fuss, you will not be passed over here because of that. They offer second chances to all those who are truly looking for one.

    Cons

    As with all jobs to those reentering the job market, the pay is low and not too competitive. Promotion is their but, is limited to who they want, not those that want it.

    Advice to Management

    Chances to those who want it, not just those who you deem fit, and the chance to move to other stations where chances are better. Manager put together a winning team, at the expense of holding people back, only to have them quit.

    Pros

    They take EXCELLENT care of their employees. During the giant flood in Minot, ND 2011, they offered free storage units to all affected by the flood. They were also offering 0% interest loans to rebuild your house. The schedule was great...8 on 6 off schedule for the last year or so. I think they are shorthanded now and went back to a Mon-Fri.

    Cons

    The main office for in the field work is in Tioga...no one wants to live in Tioga. I lived in Minot and drove 1.25 hrs everyday...one way. That wasn't paid for, but they gave us company vehicles with gas cards, which was nice. The other con was with management. It sounds like everything is fixed now according to a friend that still works there.

    Advice to Management

    When someone leaves on good terms, and you tell them they will still have a position there if things don't work out (relocated out of state for a woman)...please stick to your word.

    Pros

    Hess is a results driven company, which may lead to long hours. However, they care about their employees and do what's right (example: hurricane sandy Hess helped out their NY/NJ employees)

    Cons

    No formal professional development. Professional growth pathways are unclear.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to truely grow organically, you need to invest more time to communicate share your vision with talent.
