    I have been working at QEP Resources full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Smaller company size meant a lot of face to face interaction with bosses and peers. Great start-up projects and legacy systems available to learn from.

    Cons

    Constrained to follow the existing framework for HMIs. A lot to take in if you don't have previous PLC experience.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at QEP Resources full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits commensurate with the oil & gas industry

    Cons

    Previous upper management purchased new Permian properties at well above market value, did overpriced business with 'friends' (a probable form of embezzlement), saw underlings later fired for actual embezzlement, promoted based on background - not on merit (and thus lost several quality personnel), then saw this gravy train coming to an end and bailed out for others to fix. The former management and any remaining members...

    Advice to Management

    Good luck fixing this sinking ship. Don't know how you are going to pay off those massive debt payments when they come due, unless oil prices miraculously bail you out.

    Great benefits, salary, 9/80 work schedule

    Cons

    QEP was at one time a growing and exciting company to work for, but the former CEO ran it into the ground and now it's for sale on the open market.

    I have been working at QEP Resources full-time

    Pros

    Good Benefits: good health insurance, 8% 401k match, annual bonus, PTO, tuition assistance, $750 annual wellness bonus, 8 paid holidays, 9/80 work schedule, $150 monthly parking allowance, free Eco pass, unlimited free beverages.

    Cons

    The company has a very negative outlook and an incompetent management team. Management practices favoritism and creates a culture of office politics. Some employees who are close to management are given preferential treatment. It’s more important to spend 40 hours being friends with your manager than it is actually doing your job. Many managers and supervisors were selected by upper management based on favoritism instead...

    Pros

    PTO and yearly bonus are usually good.

    Cons

    You will get laid off or forced into working for whoever buys you, regardless of whether you want to take that route or not. Severance was only given if an employment offer wasn't made by asset buyer. No regard to whether asset buyer was a good company nor whether you would even stay on the same career track was made. Communication between QEP and buyer was minimal on the operations level. A lot of good people were let...

    Advice to Management

    The board is as inept as can possibly be. Watching the stock value drop to nothing has been enjoyable. Board claims these asset sales will boost company value. It seems to have done the opposite. You sold your last natural gas asset while NG prices were rising. Good move. I hope Chuck got one heck of a bonus and pension after nose diving a once good company into the dirt. Betting on bankruptcy in less than 2 years, tops.
