    Relatively easy-going work environment, but unclear career path for software developers

    Dec 16, 2010 - Software Developer in Houston, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    A relatively generous benefits package that includes company matched contributions plus an semiannual contributions of company stock (alot) that you can immediately transfer to any other fund vanguard has. An annual bonus that usually averages around 8% (also depends on company performance) of your gross annual salary, you get your own office, state-of-the-art gym and soccer field with various exercise classes available for free to employees and family, flexible schedule, tuition reimbursement (90%), good work life balance (at least for software guys)

    Cons

    Groups vary widely from each other and can have managers that are real slave drivers. Luckily, I'm not in one of those groups, but I have heard that for some groups Saturday is just another work day. ConocoPhillips likes to stick with older software platforms and has yet to take the leap to current technologies like GPGPU or even web services. It appears that software we end up supporting/developing has more to do with the person who yells the loudest, rather than what is truly useful or innovative. But, as long as you swim with the current, you'll be fine. Also, the career path for software developers isn't clear at ConocoPhillips, but who cares when you get a sweet benefits package.

    Mediocre place for a career

    Mar 20, 2012 -  in Houston, TX

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    At ConocoPhillips, in most work groups the work/life balance is pretty good: if you need time off for vacation or if you are sick, supervisors are usually very understanding. The benefits (health, vision, perscription) are very good and there is a big push toward over-all wellness (physical, mental). Very nice gym facility at the main complex and a lot of outside programs to get involved in. (Rodeo Run, United Way, Employee Networks)

    Cons

    There are many layers of management at ConocoPhillips and that makes it extremely hard to get any work done or to feel any sense of ownership of a role. While it is possible to get a new role and develop professionally at ConocoPhillips, there are a lot of politics at play and there are Talent Management Teams (TMT's) that play a huge role in placing employees in new roles that are not always in the employees best interest and development, it's usually for the benefit of the company. Promotions are on a strict time-in-grade and performance rating schedule, so for a strong performer it can be a lot of years between promotions. This makes it very dificult to have a strong career at the company unless you are a favorite of the TMT's or have a strong supporter in management. The norm is to have very weak/poor supervisors or managers. They are working supervisors so they don't have the time, energy or interest in developing employees. Most of the poor treatment of employees comes from top management and employees are seen as very expendable.

    ConocoPhillips is a great safe place to work for both family oriented and non-family oriented people.

    Pros

    The people at ConocoPhillips are great to work with. You don't feel like you're just a number. At most companies, you feel like there are revolving doors with people constantly leaving, but that is not the case here. If you're in the finance or most other aspects of the company, you don't have to live in the "big" city for your "big break." There are plenty opportunities right here in Bartlesville and it's a good place to raise children and have a family. Higher ranking officers from the corporate office even drop by to your office from time to time and come to each person's individual desk to talk to you to get feedback. On top of all that, the company has GREAT PAY and WONDERFUL BENEFITS. The company is always looking for more ways to improve and satisfy its employees. So far, it has been a great company to work for.

    Cons

    I have not experienced any downsides yet since I've been with the company and I don't expect to experience any. I've enjoyed everyday at work and the jobs are challenging, but not too challenging to the point where they can't be completed.

    Experience at ConocoPhillips

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The people at ConocoPhillips are very friendly and willing to help others out. They offer a lot of opportunities to individuals that are just coming out of college. There are many ways to learn more about the industry and see whether or not it is a good fit. ConocoPhillips also has great compensation and everyone seems to be very excited to work there. You are constantly challenged to apply everything you have learned into your work and have the guidance of the other employees. Overall, I would definitely recommend individuals to look at this company and consider it as an option.

    Cons

    There are not many downsides to working at ConocoPhillips. The only thing I can think of is the fact that the headquarters are located in Texas, which is not my ideal location to work at. I also think that the company is pretty big so it may feel like you can get lost, but as long as you take the initiative to suceed and ask questions, the size of the company won't really get to you. ConocoPhillips offers a lot to its employees and it is up to the individual to pave their own path and create their own experience.

    Great development opportunity in a low risk, low stress environment.

    Nov 20, 2014 - Anonymous Employee in Bartlesville, OK

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    For the Midwest, it is by far one of the best companies you could work for. Phenomenal benefits. IT has a very low stress working environment compared to more "tech" oriented companies. Great place for someone looking to settle down, start a family, and embrace the "work to live, not live to work" mentality. This is definitely an organization ran by an older generation. Bartlesville really can be a great place to live if you learn to make the most of it. Job security is unmatched.

    Cons

    As with any large corporation, ConocoPhillips moves slowly and has its fair share of bureaucracy. In my experience, the IT organization is more oriented towards those wanting to settle down than those wanting to move up or do something incredibly progressive. There is significant internal resistance to making waves. Employees are encouraged to keep their head down and follow directions. New ideas generally take around two years to implement. Budget cycles control the fate of most projects. If the oil price drops, almost all "new" IT projects will be frozen for the year.

    Ageing Oil Company Offers Great Pay, Limited Job Satisfaction

    Jun 11, 2011 - Analyst in Bartlesville, OK
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Above market salaries. Low performance expectations. Little or no overtime required. Gold plated benefits. Some prestige working for a Major Oil Company.

    Cons

    The Bartlesville, Oklahoma office houses a sprawling bureaucracy which administers the IT, Finance, and Accounting functions. The culture is extremely risk-averse. The Orwellian office-safety campaign reflects an unwillingness to quantify risk, rather than a sincere commitment to worker safety. The computer systems line employees interface with are 10-20 years out of date. The staffing model, driven by seniority and cronyism, promotes uneducated legacy employees beyond their level of competence. The Tone at the Top, both in corporate management and business unit management, is focused on control, constricting employee autonomy and stifling innovation. Decision making is paralyzed by fear of risk. While the pay is above market, the opportunities are decidedly limited. Any college finance course will teach you that an option is worth money. ConocoPhillips knows this, and pays employees a premium for the options they forgo due to the remote work location and glacial pace of promotions.
