    I have been working at Newfield Exploration full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Newfield is a really great company. The leadership is smart, down to earth and does a great job of mentoring employees. The company is leading the industry with its operations in Oklahoma and much of its operational activity is considered top-tier. They offer "Cadillac" benefits including insurance, compensation, bonus and 401K.

    Cons

    Leadership often gives employees who are not performing up to par the benefit of the doubt -- and sometimes it goes on way too long.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work operationally. You have great people and the culture is uniquely Newfield. Not everyone fits into that culture. When they don't, cut your losses and ask them to move on -- for the benefit of the company and your people.

    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.

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

    Advice to Management

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

    I worked at Newfield Exploration as a contractor (More than a year)

    Cons

    Some teams were less cohesive than others but overall I didn't see any huge negatives working at NFX.

    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement and higher salaries exist for all employees, regardless of age, based on performance and attitude. Newfield encourages and supports continuing education. The company offers an excellent benefits package.

    Cons

    The company tends to be a little top heavy on managers. It went from having an almost straight line org chart to having multiple layers of managers and leads.

    Advice to Management

    Continue providing the leadership you are providing. Newfield employees are proud to work at Newfield and are motivated to go the extra step to help the company succeed.

    Wonderful experience with direct supervisors and management in general. Company works to keep everyone educated in things happening in the industry as well as within the company.
