    I have been working at Cimarex Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great organization! It is a small organization with all the benefits of a very large company. You have a lot of flexibility to get your work done without micro management.

    Cons

    No Cons at this point.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop leadership especially if you are promoting field employees into manager roles.

    I have been working at Cimarex Energy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy my work. My department is not micromanaged. Great benefits, medical, dental, vision, 401(k), vacation, and floating holidays. Charitable contributions are matched.

    Cons

    My department is so divided. My manager is so knowledgeable, but is not management material; doesn't try to make the group cohesive or monitor what people are doing/not doing. Don't feel as if there is enough local involvement in the community. My dept does not receive bonuses, but we do receive profit sharing if possible.

    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!
