    I worked at Denbury Resources full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits were outstanding; great people; interesting problems to tackle.

    Cons

    Dwindling perks; top-heavy with management; few opportunities for advancement; lack of effective communication between executives and rank and file employees beyond mission statements and platitudes.

    Advice to Management

    The new CEO's got good ideas but he's inherited a mess. I genuinely hope oil prices improve enough for him to bring the company back, but there's very rough going ahead.

    Pros

    Free breakfast and lunch
    Decent benefits
    New CEO (new blood)

    Cons

    Lack of direction.
    Everyone knows a reorg is coming but management has remained mum on the topic. Just do it, and get it over with so everyone can move forward.
    Moral is low.
    Too many meetings, not enough doing.
    Limited upward mobility.
    The rest of the industry is adding perks/benefits back, DNR is not.
    Former cool/fun culture is going away.
