      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at WPX Energy full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      When I first started at WPX, it was great. People asked your opinions and took them into consideration. The pay was pretty good as well and you were rewarded for your hard work. Also the work family balance was important and they took good care of their employees

      Cons

      Communication, communication, communication. A lot of times, you were left on your own with no guidance. And if things went wrong, it came back to you for not addressing the situation, even though you weren't able to get the help needed.

      Advice to Management

      MUST Improve communication.

      Positive Outlook
      Approves of CEO

      I worked at WPX Energy full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      Great people, good salary and benefits, retirement plan, fair medical insurance (expensive but fair), parking garage, good upper management.

      Cons

      Unstable due to low gas prices, cutback, layoffs, an industry problem. There are a few pockets of 'good ole boy' type management which allows favoritism and unfair practices, but in any large company this is going to occur. Overall, it is better than most.

      Advice to Management

      Examine your departments and management teams with a critical eye, don't be so trusting. As far as the market conditions, that is a vast problem for upper management, and I wish them well in dealing with it.

      Negative Outlook
      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at WPX Energy full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Flexible work schedule and some genuinely great people in certain areas of the company. Workload heavy at times but generally good work/life balance.

      Cons

      Unqualified people put in management positions with little or no oversight by superiors. Good ol boy network is alive and well and causes major screw ups to be brushed under the table with no consequences. Demoralizing environment.

      Advice to Management

      Clean management house completely in the Williston basin. Stop turning a blind eye to blatant sexual harassment and racial discrimination against whites.

      I have been working at WPX Energy

      Pros

      Great people and environment. Employee friendly

      Cons

      Politics in certain areas has caused a void of leadership. Company direction does not seem real solid. Information technology is now being ran by a group of HR cronies with no idea at all about technology. There is an influx which is demoralizing as more qualified people are available.

      Advice to Management

      Bring in solid leaders in all areas that have expertise and can be strategic in the company's success.
