    9/80 schedule, all other oil companies in the area offer this schedule.

    "IT"

    Pros

    Good people on team and some good supervisors / managers. Some supervisors and mangers actually are pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    Leadership has blinders on - morale issues but upper management ignores the problems and hope they will self resolve. Market is down so benefits were cut, lack of raises and promotions in IT, and pay lower than other oil and gas companies.
    A divide between apps and infrastructure leadership causes awkward "all it" meetings.
    A culture of "old" CLR employees versus anyone new - especially if they worked at another oil and gas company in OKC.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to retain talent before they all leave.

    Pros

    Nice large company to work for a period of time to gain some experience. Nice perks and benefits package. Positive company outlook.

    Cons

    Not really any new technology introduced at this company. IT positions could be more diverse at this company.

    I have been working at Continental Resources (Oklahoma) as a contractor

    Pros

    The only pros I've seen from this company is when the field company men are sleeping in there trucks instead of demanding ignorant orders

    Cons

    This company goes off of strictly oilfield time( as in years and month ) not experience. Example There is company man who has been cementing for 30 years. This guy get placed in the completion side. He is ignorant in just about every aspect of the completion operations. With his lack of knowledge but rushing attitude is going to get someone hurt or even killed. Cementing is nothing like dealing with a well that has over 5000 psi. So this company man's stupidity and misconception of time has the whole location angry which cause poor work ethic as well as unclear thinking with also can get someone hurt. This example happens everyday with this company. Don't get me wrong this company has bunch of good people that work for them. But thereally is a couple people that get away with a lot of stupid stuff are going to get someone hurt or killed. A few of continentals employees are going to cause continental to have a lawsuit filed against them.

    Advice to Management

    Go to yalls locations and ask the people that have to work for continental what there opinions are on the company men that yall have chosen to overlook the workers on yalls locations.

    I have been working at Continental Resources (Oklahoma) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    1) Job Security - Most workers remain employed, even in cyclical downturns. No "formal" layoffs.

    2) Assets - Company has outstanding assets in two industry friendly locations (ND and OK).

    3) Lean Corporate Structure - This ties back to reason number one, but a lot can be said for having little fat when times are tough in the industry. They certainly don't over-hire, unlike certain Oklahoma City-based peers.

    Cons

    Pervasive underinvestment in productivity and data management infrastructure (i.e. computers, specialized industry software, servers, commercially available third-party data sets) has been an issue for years.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone in town (OKC) knows through the grapevine when you start reducing staff and not giving those let go any form of severance package. We were told a leading reason management made the move from Enid, OK was how challenging it was to attract talent there. Treating veteran employees the same as new hires when they get let go for performance-based reasons and not giving them any kind of severance package during an industry downturn reflects very poorly on this company. I could name several people at leading competitors who are aware of this and would never consider working for our company because of this.

    I have been working at Continental Resources (Oklahoma) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance is good. Employees that have been there a long time have loyalty. Assets are good

    Cons

    People get promoted based on how loud / bullish they can be, not on what they know. CLR needs to take a look at managers, lack of communication and who they are promoting. There is no direct movement for advancement. People are stuck in their "Enid Ways" and refuse to accept there are new or better ideas. Lower pay and benefits compared to other oil companies

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at who you are putting into management / supervisor roles. Communication needs to improve greatly. People need to get rid of the "this is how we did it in Enid" attitude.

    Pros

    Good interdepartment communication between different departments

    Cons

    Management does not support new ideas. A lot of people get promoted based on who they know not what they know.
