I have been working at XTO Energy full-time (More than 10 years)
Lots of opportunities, benefits are decent except for the health insurance, stable company. Conservative approach allows weathering the storm during downturns with minimal layoffs.
Health insurance requires a lot of additional co-insurance and deductible payments. The usual corporate frustrations. Performance appraisal system can squeeze out good people if they don't fit the mold. Excessively conservative and dated policies dissuade a lot of todays generation from staying here long term.
Advice to Management
Get with the times and stop running the company like Rockefeller.
I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at XTO Energy (New York, NY).
The interview process was very laid back. I had an interview with two production engineers, engineering manager, and production superintendent. The interview ended with a brief conversation with human resources representative.
