    Pros

    A great place to work. Great support from corporate office, senior management, and company executives. Company did not lack on communication at all! Treated their employees with respect and acknowledged them when needed.

    Cons

    It is a gas station- you have to have the right personality to work at a gas station. There are certain people who can do it, and others who try and fail. Company sold 72 retail stores to horrible "mom and pop" company in Denver called PCF Saleco, LLC. Stores are now being run into the ground and not maintaining the ConocoPhillips name. Maintenanace issues at stores. Employee issues at stores. No loss prevention in place. No raises in years for managers. No raises for employees past 90 days. No bonuses.

    Pros

    Good pay. Intern program is alright. Could've been much better, but the Finance and IT interns had it much better since they had a good HR manager. You get to meet a lot of people through Lunch n Learns. The problem is, the interns started separating a bit, with the finance group hanging with themselves, procurement with themselves, etc. Yet there were a fair number of interns who organized and attended social events outside of work hours.

    Cons

    Bartlesville is not very exciting.
    Corporate bureaucracy is very very evident. VP of HR even said something along the lines of: "you'll be promoted based on how you are perceived...."
    COP barely hires outside of Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas, and Texas. So if you're coming from the north or anywhere else, you'll be alone.
    For any prospective interns out there, this may all change after I write this because of the split. But I doubt there's going to be any culture changes. It's probably going to be the same boring corporate company like any other.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent; communicate with those down the hierarchy and promote based on intuitive characteristics
