    I have been working at Pioneer Natural Resources full-time

    Pros

    Front line employees are amazing, talented people. I've had the privileges with most departments and have been impressed by my inter clients and their management.

    Cons

    Extremely low employee to manager ratio makes it absolutely critical that you find the best boss fit possible. Upward movement between groups is confidential and easy to navigate.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your amazing, talented people. Focus on asking for their best ideas and encouraging and empowering them to implement.

    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.
