I have been working at Newfield Exploration full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- Egos don't get in the way - just get the job done and you'll be rewarded well. Everyone strives to do the 'right thing'. Good culture.
- Very, very few micro-managers- - the flip side is that you better be able to function without a lot of guidance.
- Lots of opportunities - if you are willing to move around.
- Focus was on employees - now more focus directed toward shareholders and stock price is going up! It makes those stock awards worth something!
- VP in Denver is top notch.

Cons

- Depending on your reporting structure, you may have a great manager, or a very untrained front-line manager.
- Management does not dictate what has to be done.... and so even the simplest changes are driven from the bottom up. This makes universally adopted change very difficult.

Advice to Management

L-E-A-D by example. Tighten your belts and walk the walk.
Don't forget the original set of values!

    Pros

    Vacation - Salary is decent. Need better stock options for non-management ee's.

    Cons

    too much favoritism. If you don't play the games, you loss your job. Hypocrites.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing games. Communication is key to keeping good employees
