    I have been working at Pioneer Natural Resources as a contractor

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere, management is easy going, and if you can ever get on full time the benefits are killer.

    Cons

    Extremely difficult to make it past the contract phase (i.e., full time employment with company).

    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.
