    Pros

    Cimarex was really taking off when I was employed there. It was an exciting place to be and they treat their employees wonderfully. Best healthcare benefits I have ever had and they were extremely low cost to employees. Excellent 401 match. Tom Jorden would come visit our office and would know all of us by name. All executives were extremely friendly and approachable. All in all I was devastated to have to leave my job here, and if I wasn't forced to move due to my husband's position I would have never left.

    Cons

    I cannot think of one bad part about my job at Cimarex or the company in general.

    Pros

    Brilliant Executive Team. Top shelf benefits. Open door policy with management. Great ethics and core values.

    Cons

    No advancement opportunities within highly specialized groups and divisions. Slow to promote talented employees that were forced to seek out other employment to grow their career.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at some of the worker ants that are performing advanced tasks for managers who do not properly identify the source of the finished project.

    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.

    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.

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