    I worked at Continental Resources (Oklahoma) full-time

    Pros

    Competitive salary and benefits package.
    Great work atmosphere

    Cons

    Technical decisions are a top-down process, minimum input from the SME
    Extremely lean organization at lower levels but too many SVPs, VPs, and Directors

    Advice to Management

    It is a hard process if you don't know well the top levels

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

    Pros

    Great place to work hard and stay busy. Lots of other great people that like to GET IT DONE ✅ Decent pay for most positions. Work hard... get paid... stay around. Company runs lean in most departments to survive tough times without layoffs, but that means you have to work hard even when things are slow to keep up.

    Cons

    Lots of change driven from the top can be tough to deal with on a daily, or weekly basis. This creates some of the extra work. Several disconnects between senior levels and mid level managers and individual contributor levels.

    Advice to Management

    Get aligned at senior levels. Clearly message priorities and stay with a plan for longer than 4 days.

    Good people to work with. Broad range of responsibilities.

    Cons

    Does not offer a 9/80 schedule.

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

    I worked at Continental Resources (Oklahoma) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Asset base, pay base, executive leadership

    Cons

    Lack of respect and trust from middle management

    Advice to Management

    Culture is falling apart and driving out top talent. I believe senior management cares, but middle management is struggling to properly and/or effectively deploy their resources.

    Pros

    Loved that the valued the little guys opinions. Team meetings allowed the younger engineers to participate and present to Senior management.

    Cons

    Some execs didn't always support their vertical chain down.

    Advice to Management

    listen

    "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

    You learn a lot about the business and work with many intelligent people. Requires you to do more with much fewer people than any competitor.

    Cons

    There are bad apples throughout the system that continually project their failures in life or in work onto their people therefore causing them to leave. Any insubordination or disagreement will not be tolerated. This theme propels itself further when managers abuse their power by making up information to support their stories. These same managers are the ones staggering drunk at industry-sponsored conferences while their superiors do nothing about it. Most managers manage up, not down. This is how they keep their jobs and ultimately, their employees below are still struggling to do their jobs with little to no support because they're kissing up to anyone above who will listen. Lastly, know that even in a small company, there's little to no chance you'll ever see anyone above your abusive managers. If you think HR cares, they'd rather gossip and work to support the abusive managers. Lastly, there are little to no ethics running around the bowels of this company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people and connect with them. Sitting in your office all day and ignoring those below you because you're "too high up the chain" isn't going to help you.
