    I worked at Concho full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Concho gives you the tools you need to succeed. Management cares about the wellbeing of employees. The culture is very friendly. Fantastic facilities including an employee center with cafeteria, premium workout facility with free fitness classes, basketball court, and day care. Health insurance and related benefits are first class and paid for in full by the company.

    Cons

    Tough to gauge advancement potential and career path. Fragmented organizational structure leads to some inefficiency. Behind on IT and systems investment (lots of manually kept data, need more centralized databases and company-wide systems architecture). Midland is boring from a social perspective (especially if you are single).

    Advice to Management

    More transparent performance review process. More investment in IT. They are doing pretty much everything else right that is under their control.

    Pros

    Fantastic company to work for! Great environment for growth. All coworkers and supervisors are great to work with.

    Cons

    I cannot think of any bad things to say about this company. Everything in my experience has been very positive

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to give the employees a tad more slack when making decisions on various projects. Otherwise management is doing great.

    I have been working at Concho (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Amazing company. They are "employees first" (Which isn't easy to do as a publically traded company), As this company has grown over the last 8 years, so has the opportunity for those that are willing to accept the challenge. Senior level management gives you the tools and the chance to prove yourself as a leader. You success is rewarded if you can show to handle it. I have worked for several oil companies over the years, and there isn't a single one that can provide big-company growth, with a family based environment. Sure there are some individuals that can be hard to work with, that's everywhere. Management doesn't tolerate people who cant work as a team to accomplish solutions to complex problems, so don't try to be a lone ranger, it wont get the job done in most cases. The benefits are unreal, I didn't even know this could exist.

    Cons

    Seriously? I guess the wind could blow less, but its Midland.

    Advice to Management

    The environment at the personal and professional level you have created is amazing. Thank you for the opportunity, and I only wish decades more of this to come.


  6. "HR"

    Pros

    Benefits are amazing, they truly care for their employees. Medical is paid 100% for employee + dependents. Free gym membership at the YMCA, but they will soon have their own gym, cafeteria, and child care facility.

    Great people to work will.

    Cons

    Oil industry is very unstable, and the location.

    Pros

    This company is filled with great people who are always willing to go the extra mile for both coworkers and customers. The benefits are absolutely second to none. They pay for the best medical insurance, the best life insurance and the best dental/vision as well. If you want benefits, this is the company to become a part of, they also contribute 10% dollar for dollar matching into your 401k. Coffee and snacks on every floor also!

    Cons

    Growing pains. At least in the area I work, many of the more tenured employees are stuck in the small company mindset and this is no longer a small company. Some of the processes/filing requests are straight out of the 80's , I'm talking 70 copies of a 200 page document so it can be placed in every well that person is associated with. Computers need to be more at play here.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly they know a whole lot more than I do so I feel like my advice should be taken with a grain of salt. Keep up the good things! The only thing I would say is that they need to be more open to change and using the immense resources that technology provides in order to make processes both more efficient and more reliable for auditors. Inventory tracking technology was invented and perfected long ago, let's of hop on that train.

    I have been working at Concho full-time

    Pros

    good pay, friendly environment and co-workers, awesome benefits, good amount of paid time off, management really cares about its employees, lots of training offered, company is run well

    Cons

    I work around very friendly and talkative co-workers. Sometimes it can get a bit loud when I need to be focusing on work. No cons other than that!

    Advice to Management

    No advice to management. They are running the company very well and are very friendly and personable to all employees, which is very special given that the company is over 1000 and growing strong.

    Pros

    The benefits are great free insurance with hsa plan also free dental and vision all in all its a good company to work for moving up could be tricky but not impossible

    Cons

    Average salaries they need to bring their lease operator wages up especially if u already have field experience they need to put people in charge that have field experience not an engineer that just graduated i mean someone with many years not just a couple of years and their experience must be in the field and verifiable

    Advice to Management

    Don't let engineering run the field unless they know what they r doing
