    Pros

    Pioneer has an incredibly qualified leadership team, amazing compensation/benefits, and a staunch commitment to retaining its employees. Truly the best Independent Oil Company out there.

    Cons

    Success at Pioneer, much like other oil and gas companies is dominated by a traditional, conservative cultural approach. Resource groups provide the illusion of successful diversity initiatives, but Pioneer is still deficient in terms of empowering non-traditional leaders in oil and gas, namely women and minorities.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate communication barriers muddled by the several layers of middle management and avoid taking the passive approach to being the 'industry leader'. Instead of repeatedly discussing the importance of diversity, social responsibility, and environmental stewardship, start taking action in order to truly put the company ahead.

    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.
