    Eliminate Accenture and bring the accountants back to Houston. Actually adhere to the 2020 vision and treat employees like a true asset. Cut back on HR reps- they never know answers and just tell you to call benifits center

    I worked at Hess Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great as a whole. Great benefits, hours (9/80) and compensation.

    Cons

    A few years back the company started hiring managers with no O&G experience. They started using "Is who you know" rule and bringing friends to management positions. Culture started deteriorating, trust was disheartening, workload increased for some people, politics sky rocked. Very stressful workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Hire management that is able to support his direct reports with knowledge, people skills, motivational, team leader and great sense of leadership. Having a management title does not give power or privileges. It imposes responsibility, and your responsibility is your workload, the company and the people below you.
