    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Pioneer Natural Resources full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, people, and company safety/community culture. Even after deciding to shut down their Brady Texas sand operations, pioneer has gone above and beyond to take care of its soon to be former employees.

    Cons

    I can’t stay with this amazing company.

    Advice to Management

    Allow people to be let go more easily for repeated performance issues .

        No opinion of CEO

        I have been working at Pioneer Natural Resources full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        Excellent benefits. Bonus structure and stock. Great place for average workers. Easy work.

        Cons

        Incredibly unqualified people are hired for positions they’re clearly not qualified for because they belong to the “club”, or are connected. Promotions the same. Incentives to go above and beyond are nonexistent. Only way to move up is to wait your turn. Performance doesn’t factor in.

        Advice to Management

        Speak to average joes. You may find out a lot.
