    I worked at Hunt Oil Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work with smart driven people. Good benefits and opportunity for career development.

    Cons

    Good ol' boy culture. Friends of the family are hired and promoted to positions they do not belong in. This creates a culture where the management is often incompetent and not held accountable.
    As an engineer, I shouldn't need to wear a suit and tie. The culture is very old school.

    I worked at Hunt Oil Company (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Numerous employee benefits & employee programs (eg, a monthly book club where a professional speaker and your lunch is provided), a pension, new building, Wolfgang Puck cafe on-site, wonderful people & culture and good management with deep pockets and is diversified so they should be in business for another 80 years.

    Cons

    Most employees are very helpful; however, you may run into some who make getting your job done more difficult. Also, managers receive very little manager training so your manager experience varies greatly (ie, there are awesome, average and bad bosses).

    Would like a different schedule
