      Great benefits, good people, and typical corporate issues

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The benefits are excellent. The people are great. You can have work life balance by holding your own boundaries. 4 weeks vacation starting; 5 weeks at 19 years. 6% 401K match starting; increased to 10% at 9 years; vested immediately. 100% vested pension after 3 years. Limited work from home for some roles. Choice of medical and dental benefits with HSA or FSA plans. Vision plan (mediocre). Annual bonus depending on company performance.

      Cons

      In general, your potential for growth is limited. Corporate politics: mistakes or misperceptions from the wrong person will affect your entire career and your opportunities. Favorites get repeat opportunities behind closed doors. Training is very limited. Performance management is very rarely rewarding. You’ll take the benefits and balance in trade.

      Some Good, Some Bad

      Pros

      Great coworkers, decent pay, fairly stable, management seems to care. Some managers and supervisors are great. Recently promoted managers are good so, improvement should be noticeable over time.

      Cons

      Sometimes overcomplicates things, not enough focus on what is important. Not great at building new strategies. Some poor managers. The company says it values employees, but actions do not always match.

      Pros

      Ethical , law abiding, EHS focussed, professional. Work life balance, an amazing 9-80. Cares for the community and its people like I have never seen. Well managed, good communication and adapting to ever changing environment.

      Cons

      The government of Califonia always is threatening what we do with bill proposals etc but Aera does a great job of putting the full story out there and showing the positive contribution we make to the community from wellhead to dinner table.
