    I worked at Pioneer Natural Resources full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amazingly smart employee workforce. Dedicated and friendly staff. Everyone loved working for Pioneer.

    Cons

    Way too much employee sharing (borrowing) and movement within the company which created chaos for HR and a sense of confusion. In a low price environment this employee swapping was going on to alleviate the need to hire. This company runs lean! so everyone is uber busy.

    Advice to Management

    Management at the executive level is phenomenal. Upmost respect for them.

    Pros

    Never fire anyone. On-site free cafe. Good pay. Work/Life balance is a plus!

    Cons

    As is oil/gas...people never leave and it's hard to grow and be cutting edge when nobody wants to change. There is very little loyalty to our contractors. They are expected to know stuff but are never included in the meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone fairly to include contractors.

    Pros

    Great people
    Free lunch
    Great benefits
    Operations group are some of the best in the industry
    Corporate office has two pretty decent gyms

    Cons

    Management outside of operations is clueless. Lots of managers biding their time until retirement. Don't expect to change anything. Culture in the corporate office is based on backstabbing and hidden motives. Senior management is clueless to the real problems, as middle management sugar coats problem areas.

    Pros

    Great benefits, pay, schedule

    Cons

    NO WORK/LIFE balance. Management does not treat individuals the same or give them the same opportunities. Many individuals do not pull their weight and aren't held accountable which leaves others stressed and overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the deadweight.

    Pros

    Pioneer treats their employees wonderfully. You are expected to work hard and diligently, but they provide free lunches, an on-site gym, half day Fridays, etc. There are courses to help employees boost and sharpen their skill sets. The company communicates clearly with its employees through a series of Town Hall meetings. Tremendous benefits. Also, I've never worked at a company that cares for its employees on such a personal level. Finally, the Innovation Team-led Shark Tank is a interesting way for anyone, at any level of the company, to pitch an idea and get it funded so it can be tested and implemented fro greater efficiency, safety, etc.

    Cons

    Oil and gas is a commodity-based business, it's volatile.
