    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Pioneer Natural Resources full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great pay like the work schedule

    Cons

    To many supervisors who do next to nothing, very much a click group if they don't like you don't count on getting a raise or any promotions no matter how hard you work and never call in sick.

    Advice to Management

    Screen who you put into management positions someone needs to be checking on these guys so they aren't in the office playing video games.

    Pros

    Great work environment. Wonderful benefits and work schedule.

    Cons

    Some managers made managers just because they have no where else to go not because they are good leaders. Grew very fast with no company blueprint for growth. Career opportunities are much greater if you are an engineer.

    I have been working at Pioneer Natural Resources full-time

    Pros

    Pioneer has some of the best benefits of anyone I know.

    Cons

    Too much disconnect between las Colinas and midland offices.
    Pay is below average
    Raises and promotions are horrible compared to other companies.
    All accountants are treated like bottom of the barrel employees.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out why employees are leaving so fast for other companies and figure out what it takes to keep them. Continuously training new people is not cost beneficial.
