    I worked at ConocoPhillips full-time

    Pros

    Great pay and overall benefits. Very talented workforce and an emphasis to give back to the communities it operates around.

    Cons

    An abundance of red tape. A culture that strives to be second best, really. For example, adopting the moniker of “fast follower” in times of low commodity prices. Always going to be a day late and a dollar short, which is troubling when finding value is more difficult than ever.

    Pros

    Company has great pay and benefits and the latest technology, which makes working there exciting.

    Cons

    Lots of back-room politics and good-old-boy stuff when it comes to promotions or choice projects. Women definitely don't get the same level of respect as men.
