    I have been working at ConocoPhillips full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love the work culture and also the fact that i have some of the best benefits in the industry. Great pension, 401k, and health insurance are just a few reasons this place is great. I have 6 years with the company and I have been rewarded competitively.

    Cons

    There are times where family members and favorites are favored more than others but with hard work everyone can prove their worth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Don't pick favorites and treat everyone equally.

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

    Pros

    International, great positions in US Shale Plays, and some excellent leaders.

    Cons

    Very ambitious growth plans in 2012 & 2013 created a huge overhead burden, immediately after spinning off the revenue generating downstream portion of the business. They had to make deep and drastic cuts to stay solvent, but executive management, stayed and got paid well.

    Advice to Management

    Care for your employees and make your salaries and positions the first ones to suffer when it was your poor performance that led to the untenable situation.

    Pros

    Excellent work environment, great people, training availability. I loved it there
