    I worked at QEP Resources full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Great office environment
    - Great people to work with
    - Very understanding of work/life balance
    - GREAT pay
    - Best benefits I have ever seen

    Cons

    - Middle management was handled poorly; too many chiefs
    - Communication was tough to get from upper management
    - Processes were hard to nail down

    Advice to Management

    Work on communication skills. Allow the people who DO the work to outline the processes. Cut back your middle management.

    I have been working at QEP Resources full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, 401k match, bonus targets are on par with rest of industry, recent (last 2 years or so) 'youth' injection into company which has brought new and fresh ideas. Company stayed more stable than most throughout this oil/gas glut.

    Salary has reflected my effort thus far, pay raises have been far above average and bonus has reflected the work/effort I have put in.

    Cons

    Executive teams do a great job of trying to state clear objectives and company direction to employees. However, it seems as of late the message doesn't match the actions and the board is running the company. Contract completions runs the company, all executives appear to answer to and bend a knee to Terry Booker who is widely accepted by field personnel as a complete.... well you know... as is all his field contract completions people. Rushed projects (largely due to the contract completions personnel) have led to unsafe work conditions and startup conditions on numerous occasions. When you aren't dealing with completions personnel or aren't listening to the executive management team try to spin a decision that that market reacted horribly too, it's a good place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Put contract completions in their place, actually enforce the 'no shortcuts' mantra rather than having employees fear for their job when they tell a completions hand 'the site isn't safe to start up yet'.

    Pros

    Very fun group of "lower-level" employees and managers that makes the company a fun office location to work at.

    Cons

    Upper Management rarely has a clear direction. They are flipping long term, money-making assets on a whim. That leads to unease among the technical teams for individual assets who don't know if their job will be there tomorrow.

    Advice to Management

    Quit patting yourself on the back and make sure you maintain a happy, stable group of employees.

    I worked at QEP Resources full-time

    Pros

    Benefits: Eco pass, $150 toward parking a month, good health insurance, wellness program

    Cons

    Poor management and supervisors. Managers are whipped by executives. Most Supervisors are inexperienced. Executives or friends of executives are untouchable. If you stand up for yourself to the wrong people, good luck around layoffs. HR does not help employees, you are better off avoiding them. Fear driven work environment. Reactive and lack of innovation during low commodity prices. Watch your back, it will be stabbed when the opportunity rises. Employees are scared to speak out. I don't work there any more and I'm actually worried they will find out who wrote this.

    Advice to Management

    Gain and respect the trust of your employees.

    Pros

    Every other Friday off (flex schedule) and decent 401K match.

    Cons

    You are micro-managed at every layer of the organization. There is no such thing as trusting individuals to get their work done without watching over their shoulder. Beware of the clicks within teams - no matter your performance if you don't fit within the click you will be fast tracked right out of the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to individual performance and ensure you have folks who are truly qualified!

    Pros

    Healthy company in an unhealthy commodity market. Very high matching 401K.

    Cons

    My experience hasn't been super great. Haven't been given the chance to move up or move out of my department. Starting to feel like I'm pigeon-holed.

    Advice to Management

    Before promoting people to manager, make sure they have been through management training...
