I have been working at WPX Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Many younger people in management, making it a relatively casual work atmosphere. The company tries to give a lot back to local communities.

Cons

Ranks low in industry compensation packages; lower pay and less vacation than competitors.

Advice to Management

Listen to the employees; we have good ideas but don't have management (and especially upper management) support in implementing them.
