    I worked at Cimarex Energy full-time

    Pros

    Some nice foremen. Good pay. Good hours. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Some foremen are back stabbers. I was given NO job structure, no guidelines, nothing. When I was hired I was told that my position would develop as it went. Then months later I was let go due to not doing my job!! The company never outlined what my job exactly was except for catering to a bunch of Foreman. If you don't kiss alot of butt they will find a reason to dismiss you and try to do it nicely.

    Advice to Management

    When you hire someone in a position they need specific directions as to what you require of them. It is not right that you take away someone's employment and livelihood because you failed to provide adequate instructions and requirements for a position. It was simply not fair.

    Pros

    Well run operationally. Able to survive industry downturn

    Cons

    Not a good place to work if you are not in a technical role

    Advice to Management

    Let some other people make decisions. You cannot make all the calls and survive in the long term

    Pros

    They had very good Benefits

    Cons

    Allow supervisors to work for them who lie for their favorites and doctor the time sheets to make themselves look good.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the character and type of persons you hire to be supervisors.

    I worked at Cimarex Energy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Supportive executive management, good work ethics, wonderful office environment. Work itself was fast paced, challenging, detailed, and involved executive management approvals. Many times I was required to complete a project by working outside the box to find resolution.

    Cons

    The position was managed out of IT and all project expenses and work were approved by Executives and Operations management. Fast paced projects. Reported to IT, but all work was requested and approved by other management teams. Many times my direct management was left out of the initial communications for projects. Often became tense.

    Advice to Management

    Although Executive management supported this position, over time and changes of middle management, this support was lost to my immediate management. More communication needed.

    I worked at Cimarex Energy (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pros are good pay and great benefits...well, that's it.

    Cons

    Management at all levels are greedy, egotistical misogynists. No room for advancement, very few learning opportunities and governed by fear. Awful...don't go there.

    Advice to Management

    Watch out for that thing called kharma!

    I worked at Cimarex Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    What is great about Cimarex as a drilling engineer is that once the well is drilled you continue to be involved with the well until the artificial lift system is put into place. A great place for a lot of experience

    Cons

    Micromanaging has taken over Cimarex. In the meetings only a couple of voices are heard instead of the whole groups opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Be open minded to new technology and new ideas.

    I worked at Cimarex Energy full-time

    Pros

    Some very nice, smart people work there. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Too much micromanaging. They used to be more flexible about taking time off for doctor's appointments, sick kids, etc., but not anymore. In our group we could not even make up time at lunch or stay a little later. Management stresses that their doors are always open to anyone, but that is not true. They have very poor bonuses for support employees compared to other companies. Not much opportunity for promotion/advancement.

    Advice to Management

    If there is a group/department with a high turnover rate, you need to look into the management of the group. And if you are always stressing how important it is to take care of one's family, be a little more flexible about time off.
