    I have been working at Pioneer Natural Resources full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Strong company poised for growth with a clear plan for the future.
    Great training and employee development.
    Friendly inviting culture.
    Competitive salary and benefits.

    Cons

    As we grow larger there seems to be some red tape and policies coming forward that are a little archaic.

    Advice to Management

    In the quest to reach 1mmboepd make sure to stay nimble! Keep taking care of your employees as you are now.

    I have been working at Pioneer Natural Resources full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some really nice people. Flexible

    Cons

    I.T. couldn't survive without the obscenely high number of contractors they keep on long-term instead of a proper number of employees. An unusually high number of people promoted into or moved to positions based on who they know and reputation instead of knowledge, experience, and being a good fit.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying so hard to be PC. It's causing even more of a potential HR issue than what you're trying to prevent. Learn to communicate issues and relevant news to all affected parties...not just our employees.
