    Pros

    Challenging work, competitive compensation and benefits package, 9/80 work schedule with 2 Fridays off per month, solid field supervisory personnel.

    Cons

    Staffing levels and skill sets did not always keep pace with workload and content demands creating unnecessary stress in individual work groups. Multi-location reporting structure was less effective than single location reporting for all functions.

    Advice to Management

    Consider re-aligning reporting structure to allow more autonomy at the division level thereby helping streamline communication, decision making, cross-functional teamwork, etc.

    Pros

    Per the industry, the salary and benefits are really good

    Cons

    You are expected to be available at all hours. There is no work/life balance. If you are willing to give up your family and personal life, you will do great here.

    Advice to Management

    The expectation that work is everything has to stop. If you don't value your employees having a balance, you will lose them.

    Pros

    Some good people to work with within the ranks

    Cons

    Horrible middle and upper management that could manage their out of a paper sack.

    Advice to Management

    Quit playing psychological mind games with the workers....one day they're the heroes and everything's great; the next, they're wondering if they're going to be employed. Play it straight up...COMMUNICATE!! Learn to handle confrontation in a professional manner without employing Machiavellian tactics.

    Pros

    Very easy days. Employees are asked to do virtually nothing. 9/80 work schedule essentially amounts to 15 hours of actual work for most people.

    Cons

    It's like they're actively looking for people who are so lazy they can hardly move. None of the older people ever do any actual work. The typical work day for most includes following: Show up thirty minutes late, talk to friends, eat donuts, sit at a desk and google some stuff, get up to get a drink of water, talk to friends by water cooler, complain about how they are working you to death, go to lunch, complain about needing to fill out an expense report, leave early to go to the dr. for a check up (assuming it isn't the Thursday before the Fridays off, in that case everyone leaves at 11:00 anyways).

    Yet, they refuse to promote or train their hardest workers because they need more "experience". Experience doing what? The younger harder-workers have gained more experience in a week than the older people have in their twenty year careers, because they do absolutely nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Start over! Promote the people who work hard and fire the people who do nothing. Pay for production, instead of paying the elderly and frail more because of their age.

  6. Overall, pretty good

    Pros

    Good benefits, pay, and awesome schedule. We have every other Friday off. The work environment is not too stressful.

    Cons

    It's a large company so it is difficult to build internal relationships

    Advice to Management

    Career development department

    Pros

    Offices are extremely nice in both Tulsa and Denver. They have excellent benefits and good bonuses. Company stance is very conservative. Most of the people employed there are extremely smart and well suited for the positions they hold.

    Cons

    Some people should have been dealt with better that were classic HR nightmares. It seems they are currently working out the kinks, but the Oklahoma City office merger presented challenges that management did not handle well. Processes and management styles were never expected to be followed by all, resulting in fighting and mass chaos, and lead to high turnover. I believe QEP is taking steps to correct that currently.

    Advice to Management

    Benefits are fantastic, so great job with those. But keep the people around who are worth having work there, get rid of the troublemakers in Tulsa, and reassure Tulsa employees that there is a reason to stay.

  8. Run, while you have a chance!

    Pros

    The 9/80 work schedule is awesome.

    Cons

    NO communication. Revenue manager and controller are clueless and lack in leading and communicating. They do not show appreciation. Most have worked at another company before so they all get along, but otherwise you are a nobody.

    Advice to Management

    This company will NEVER change. Needs new management throughout. Get involved, train your hard-working employees, get rid of the stale.
