    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

    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.

    I worked at Pioneer Natural Resources (More than a year)

    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.

    I have been working at Pioneer Natural Resources full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Voted best company to work for in DFW, free lunch, free gym, 2 for 1 401K match, great health benefits, and a smart set of senior execs who spend within cash flow and have built a strong company that can weather ups and downs in the market.

    Cons

    The company is going through a few growing pains, ERP programs, and other headaches during the downturn to be ready to come out of the gate running when prices turnaround. No matter how good the company is, we're still tied to commodity prices.

    Advice to Management

    Junior leader development would help avoid potential pitfalls during our growth and reorganization.
