      Great Benefits.....Poor Management

      Pros

      Fantastic benefits and decent pay.

      Cons

      Management does not care about the people "below" them. The culture is very old school and corporate, and this results in people at analyst positions being ignored and management only caring about their image to the "higher ups". It does not matter if you do a poor, good, or great job throughout the year, your compensation is pre-determined which removes all motivation. There was little to no effort during the pandemic to address the mental health of employees which was very demoralizing.

      Pros

      Flexible hours. Supervisors are great to work with

      Cons

      Training is out dated. It would be helpful to have desk manuals for new employees or employees that transition to a new position.

      Accounting at Cimarex

      Nov 2, 2020 - Accountant 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Cimarex Executive team is competent and regularly communicates with all employees. They are currently reorganizing for their forecast of what oil and gas businesses will look like. Workload is spread evenly and co-workers and supervisors are easy to work with.

      Cons

      As with most companies with a large accounting team, upward mobility is limited. There are no formal reviews or training so no one has a good grasp of how they are perceived by management. As such employees have no control over their career and can be moved to different groups without their input. Promotions are not advertised so employee morale stays low.

      Don't care about their staff, just the bottom line

      Pros

      Great health benefits and pay

      Cons

      They do not care about the well being if their employees unless you are part of the good old boys club. They do not understand mental health and work life balance. They will ask you to give all of yourself and then write you up when you don't. You must fit into their box to have a career here.

      Great benefits!

      Aug 6, 2020 - Records Assistant in Tulsa, OK
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Offers amazing benefits, the records department is by far the best place to work with amazing managers, a small group of great workers, and an updated, modern file room that isn't in a dark basement.

      Cons

      The oil and gas industry is volatile and mass layoffs can happen. Some departments and their managers are insufferable. Like all multi million (or billion) dollar companies, you are just an employee who can be replaced.
