      Pros

      Excellent work life balance. Here, life comes first. I've never had any resistance to have to take time off or leave the office temporarily to take care of life stuff. Relaxed work environment. Very flexible work schedule. Lots of bonus activities going on. Pot-lucks, work picnics, holiday parties. Houston office is very nice.

      Cons

      The ceiling for how technical you can get into software development is fairly low, if that matters to you. Although they have SPIRIT values that encourage everyone to follow certain values. The compensation system passively encourages you to make make your peers look worse to allow you to look better and get a better raise. Not remote work friendly. Business Casual when it is basically unneeded. Many employees are very resistant to change. As of Dec. 2019 the Bartlesville office could use a refresh especially compared to the brand new Houston office.

      Pros

      Navigate program Rotation program is something that really drew me in company culture diversity and inclusion

      Cons

      Sometimes work life balance is not as good as it should be when working on capstone presentation and other stuff but it is like that any where you work so hard to say Will not hire you straight out of university if you want to get your masters, which makes sense in a way but kind of silly

      Pros

      Very chill lifestyle, Great work-life balance

      Cons

      Dead city (for me at least, too rural but peaceful if you are looking for a place to just relax and lead a quiet life)

      ConcoPhillips, where if you can last longer than 5 years you can last for 30.

      Apr 17, 2019 - GIS Analyst in Bartlesville, OK

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great work life balance oriented, excellent care for employees considerations. Big city work in a small town setting. You will work the hardest for the first 5 years than any where. But after that, you become wise enough to delegate. So don't leave even if the temptation is there. Excellent bonus opportunities, good benefits, a bowling alley, and gym built in.

      Cons

      Difficult to be dynamic in your career without moving from Bartlesville, lots of glass ceilings. They are high, but when you are there, you will have to move to get out from under it. Also, compensation is high at first and slow to rise until the 5 year mark. Attrition, specifically in young talented professionals, is high because of this.
