    Leadership encourages team to think our the box. Every position is important to the team. Excellent benefits and generous piad time off.

    Very pro extrovert environment; the less extroverted employee, though talented, could end up pigeonholed if they do not actively promote themselves and their successes.

    Pros

    Newfield has a generous bonus program. The staff is great to work with. Had they not laid me off I would still be with them today.

    Cons

    An oil and gas company is an ever changing environment, but in my opinion this last round of layoffs, centralization of offices into the Woodlands, and subsequent departmental reorganizations has cut to the bone more so than any prior actions.

    Advice to Management

    My fear with the layoffs and reorganization is that some of the management personnel that have been retained or the new people moved into management may not be what the company needs to move forward in a healthy way. With everything that the company has gone through, my advice would be to watch the effectiveness of each management team and move out the people that are not fulfilling their roles.

    I worked at Newfield Exploration full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Team work is impeccable, everyone is willing to work with each other to get the job done.

    Cons

    Lack of Management support, some management do not appreciate the talent their employees display which causes clashes and the inability to feel like they are being supported.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to appreciate your talented employees instead of protecting the ones that try to hide what they are not doing. Dividing work loads onto other staff in order to keep another employee tends to make the employees fulfilling their job duties feel overworked and under appreciated.

    Pros

    1) Outstanding team of employees in all locations 2) Leadership that knows how to survive and excel in any market environment 3) Evolving company

    Cons

    1) Leadership not always as forthright as they could be with employees (i.e. location consolidation, layoffs, new programs, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    Being more transparent with employees will build more trust. The decision to consolidate should have come out in 2012/2013 when you released your first 3 year plan.

    I have been working at Newfield Exploration full-time

    Pros

    Great work life balance, I was reading one comment on they promote the "young" and in the "group" which is not true. Newfield promotes those who look outside the box . Prove your worth and they will take care of you.

    Cons

    no complaints so far its been a great 3 years!!

    Advice to Management

    Please clean house on those who complain on a daily basis!!
