    I have been working at Newfield Exploration full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits
    Generous PTO
    Good company for those that aren't afraid to blow their own horn and are politically savvy.

    Cons

    Highly political. Lots of personality politics
    Feeling of highly skilled staff not taken care off properly
    Little advancement opportunities. I see a lot of cronyism in who gets leadership positions
    Lots of work, not enough people.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to real achievers and less to those who can 'walk the talk'
    Do a better of measuring competencies and taking an interest in employs and their career aspirations. Telling folk 'be glad you are picking up skills just in case you leave' is dispiriting and saps loyalty.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    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

    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!!
