      I have been working at Hess Corporation full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Decent pay/benefits Great dining facility Great staff level employees

      Cons

      The company has cut its workforce by over 50% since the downturn Managers tend to only "manage up" Very few growth opportunities unless you are one of "the chosen" Nepotism is alive and well here with friends and relatives being kept instead of good hard working employees. Management changes strategies too often and won't keep to their own mandates Workload has gone up exponentially since last round of layoffs

      Advice to Management

      If you want to be a major start acting like one!
