    I have been working at Whiting Petroleum full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Highly Compensated, Incredible Benefits, Flexible Work/Home life balance, Paid time off, sick leave and Maternity Leave. Management, in the North Dakota offices, are highly qualified individuals who have the company as well as each individuals well being at heart. Knowledgeable staff with group team effort used in almost every decision. Workload is spread evenly.

    Cons

    Slow promotional rate. Other than that I can't really think of anything else. Just a great company to work for!

    Keep up the good work and please continue to care for your employees as you have for years!!
