    I have been working at Mansfield Oil full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Open door policy. Great latitude and growth opportunity. Always expanding which allows opportunities in areas of interest. The executive team is very strong.

    Cons

    Fast paced. Strap in because this place is exciting, exhilarating and can be stressful. Parking is a mess due to growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Documentation could be better. Stay the course on the changes you are making.

    I worked at Mansfield Oil

    Pros

    Opportunities are there, but management makes it impossible to achieve them

    Cons

    Very unhealthy environment. Lots of backstabbing, a culture of blaming people, specially on the IT department. Salary is not even up to the market.

    I have been working at Mansfield Oil full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great team, strong innovative leaders, rapidly growing, work nearly anywhere in the country, lot of upward mobility for new employees due to ongoing company expansion. Opportunity to move around and to move up in several cities across the US such as Denver, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Chicago, Calgary, Atlanta, Minneapolis. Bonus plan for all employees at all levels.

    Cons

    Tough competitive work environment where lack of documented processes and procedures can introduce stress and confusion into your day. Expensive benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop consistent management practices as today some inexperienced managers are not proving good leadership to their staff.

    Terrible

    I worked at Mansfield Oil

    Pros

    Good experience and training. Good place to gain knowledge for your next career.

    Cons

    About one of the worst companies you could work for. There is no loyalty to the employees. You will just be a disposable part in a ruthless machine. Expect to work in very stressfull conditions with lots of promises that will not be fulfilled, think of it as a short term job in a sweat shop with a slave master.

    I worked at Mansfield Oil full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits are average at best.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work the longest hours of your life. There is no such thing as a work/life balance here. Regardless of which department you are in, you will work....and work. And work.

    Beware of false expectations when you interview with this company. Hiring managers and HR will promise you the sun, but once you start working it is an entirely different ball game.

    Do your own investigating. Many of the recruiters I have spoken to won't even send any of their candidates here because of the horrid working conditions. Ask around!

    Good luck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set realistic working hours. Most people are not happy working these long hours on a salary, which is lower than the industry standards.

    I worked at Mansfield Oil full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great vision and leadership team, outstanding industry recognition and reputation. Expansion into other areas of the country and business model made for more opportunities to advance and gain industry insight. Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Long hours were expected and sometimes required. Higher paying management positions were often filled from outside giving internal candidates reasons to look outside the company to advance. Difficult to change roles to gain more company experience in other areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If hard working and loyal employees express an interest in other positions/roles allow them to (and quickly) or they will soon be gone. It's too good of a company to make people feel they are pigeon holed.

    Pros

    They reward hard work and excellence.
    They have experienced and are continuing to experience tremendous growth.
    Mansfield has a great reputation in our industry - our customers love us and our competitors want to come work for us.
    They are a larger company that still has small-company moments.
    They are civic and community-minded.
    There is a good mix of employees that have been with the company for 10+ years in addition to those that are new.
    Professional work environment.
    The employees are friendly and nice.
    Supervisor, management and executives are very accessible.
    There is constant change (can also be a con to some)

    Cons

    Mansfield expects A LOT out of their employees. You will work hard and work long hours in order to be successful for most positions.
    It is an extremely fast-paced environment with a lot of multi-tasking.
    There is constant change (can be a pro to some)
    Due to its fast growth, the company has gone through some growing pains while infrastructure, processes and procedures catch up to the growth. Much of this is stabilizing at this time.
