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

    Pros

    Typical structure. Average workforce. Management expected a reasonable amount of return on their minimum wage investment.

    Cons

    I worked in a small two room location. the entire building was about 8' x 10'. The back storage room was also the office and the bathroom. if you were claustrophobic at all, it would not be an ideal working situation.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to change roles and travel

    Cons

    Bringing in leaders from the outside rather than promoting from within changed the culture in to a mini-Shell which was against the value of "Independent Spirit". It became a suffocating place to work

    I have been working at Hess Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    salary, 401k, pension, work environment, people, opportunity for growth.
    My division was sold off to another company due to outside pressure from a hedge fund manger.
    During the whole process of the divestiture, Hess take care of their employees, and made sure we were well informed about the process. I'm going to miss working for Hess.

    Cons

    medical benefits, internal politics, needs to improve in their IT department.

    Pros

    Good experience for learning the Bakken.
    met a lot of good people
    Good pay and good benefits

    Too many people in Texas and New York without field experience running the show from across the country. Doesn't work.
    Most of the good people have left because they couldn't handle the BS

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the way or retire
