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

    Pros

    I've found Cimarex to be a top-notch institution in virtually all of my experiences so far. They've really emerged as one of the best-of-breed E&P companies, and after being here for almost a year, it's easy to see why. The people I've gotten to work with have been some of the smartest and most innovative thinkers yet. At Cimarex, the entire organization seems to be that way.

    Cons

    While the company continues to grow, it sometimes forgets that it isn't the tiny organization like it once was. This can lead to what some might call 'micromanaging' or a concentration of decision-making power toward the top. But if you work hard and do good work, I think you definitely have the opportunity for your work to be seen and to have a meaningful impact on the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Think about the company's future and the best way to manage the eventual succession. Otherwise, just keep doing what you're doing.

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

    Pros

    The ability to candidly express your point of view back it up with sound data and well thought out methodology

    Cons

    Don't let yourself be micro managed. If you feel that way, you are not having candid and real conversations with your manager. Shame on you for blaming that on micro management. Engage in the solution, speak up and solve it. Because guess what, nobody else will do it for you

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more to employees so all can share in the vision of the company. Continue to self reflect in order to self improve

    I have been working at Cimarex Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent remuneration and benefit programs. Many skilled and experienced employees and a challenging professional work environment balanced with an understanding of employees personal needs.

    Cons

    Long term corporate growth potential is severely inhibited by upper management having to make ALL decisions. Communication is generally poor at mid to lower levels. Management needs to act on employee recommendations more and less on what competitors are doing. Overly conservative management style with a philosophy of; "if it works keep doing it" rather than "how can we do it better"? Competition among teams for funding and bonuses is not always in best interest of company overall.

    Advice to Management

    Let go of overly micro-managing and give middle management some decision making authority. Lead the company into new areas and methods and don't follow other companies around because this limits growth and profitability. Be honest with employees and establish an annual performance review program. Apply science and employee professional training to problem solving more.
