I have been working at Hess Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

o Slow and Steady wins the race (IE: you're not going to rise quickly unless you are in the rotational program)
o "Good ole boys" club (for some this might not be a "Pro"
   o Took care of their own
   o Takes about 3-4 years to "drink the Kool-aid / Bleed Green)
o Great retirement benefits (8% match on 6% 401k + pension)

Cons

o Spinning off / divesting all of NJ operations (Terminals, Retail (gas stations), Energy Marketing
o All the above "Pros" are in flux until there is clarity on new organization
o Several people are being pro-active and not waiting around to see if "NewCo" is better/worse

Advice to Management

o The quicker the announcement, the better
o "Grunts" want security in the work place
    o As good as before, which was still a 4-6 year cycle of layoffs
o Stay in NJ
o Pension in NewCo would keep a lot of people around

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to learn the industry and work with individuals that are very knowledgable. As well as, many are willing to assist if needed.

    Cons

    Need to have your own professional development plan, because most managers will not be able to assist in determining where you can go within the company.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Hess Corporation (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Management gives you the freedom and responsibility to make projects your own. Work is interesting and good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Opportunity for advance,en limited unless you're in the inner circle. Merit plays very small role. Management let their guard down with exposure to hostile takeover. Was less than truthful to employees in the lead up.

    Advice to Management

    Where do I start? Don't overpromise your employees. "House of Hess" and "Growing Your Own Timber" we're total jokes.
