    I worked at Continental Resources (Oklahoma) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a job. Don't have much else to add so I'm just trying to fill space to post a review. I couldn't find 20 words of positive.

    Cons

    Executive team is pompous, arrogant and believes they're the greatest and most efficient company around.

    They publicly say no layoff yet turn around and walk people out. They say they're firing poor performers but that's just to cover up the CEO doesn't like paying severance. Heartless.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest. Trust your new hires vs fire them because you can't figure out how to lead an appropriate culture change.

    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.

    ""Major Growing Pains""

    No opinion of CEO

    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.

    I worked at Continental Resources (Oklahoma) full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    People that you work with are enjoyable.
    There is a sense of loyalty to your fellow co-workers.
    Smaller corporation with the benefits of a larger company.

    Cons

    No real advancement for women.
    Pay very low compared to other oil companies.
    Expect their employees to do 6 jobs for the price of 1 and then when asked for compensation employees are consistently given excuses.
    Push a culture and values platform but the upper management does not follow it.

    Advice to Management

    Do not expect your employees to follow a culture that yourself as management will not follow.
    Learn the value of your employees on the ground level and what they bring to the table. There are many employees that you have working for you that you have overlooked or pushed to the side. The "good 'ol boy" mentality that women are just for administrators and do not contribute to the team is outdated and needs to be corrected.
