Production Associate (Former Employee) –  Bartlesville, OKDecember 16, 2016
I learned a lot working for ConocoPhillips from checking all data on oil run tickets to working as part of a team to solve or improve issues. My co-workers were very friendly and helpful. I learned about the oil and gas process and found it very interesting.

Good training programs
Engineer (Former Employee) –  CanadaDecember 15, 2016
Offers good technical training programs for early graduates. Can be frustrating dealing with bureaucracy as a larger E&P organization.

Co-workers, in general are friendly. Management relatively competent but from all mergers and acquisitions there are allegiances. During these difficult depressed commodity pricing, unfortunately the current circumstance does not bring the best character out in individuals.

A good company, but not very friendly as in family attitude, company attitude is strictly for company profit. Safety rules are extreme and centered for everybody's safety.

Okay place to work
Mso (Current Employee) –  MaljaNovember 16, 2016
Benefits are horrible but the management in the southeastern New Mexico is wonderful. Company as a whole has some issues. It doesn't pay very well they start out out at the very bottom and it's very hard to get a raise and very hard to promote. They need to promote people who have ambition to move up and learn more don't hold someone down.
Pros
Management good in southeastern New Mexico
Cons
Healthcare

Great starter company
Reservoir Engineer (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXNovember 3, 2016
I had a fantastic ConocoPhillips work experience. I elected for the severance and everything was nicely timed.

The management was very disappointing but I got to work on big projects and was compensated well.

I felt like the stress of the job was largely artificial. I didn't work very hard but definitely harder than my peers and was able to get 2 ratings and one 1 rating.
Pros
good pay, stable job
Cons
not very challenging, upper management is too conservative and possibly braindead

Generally good place but too much bureaucracy
L48 Production & Special Projects Analyst (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXNovember 1, 2016
There are a lot of great people to work with here but the bureaucracy makes it difficult to push big projects to completion and have a big impact.

There is not always great interaction between the different business functions and groups try to make themselves look good instead of looking for what is best for the company.

It was a good Company
Field Drilling Superintendent (Former Employee) –  Midland, TexasOctober 30, 2016
Past tense..it was a good company. Senior management will not run it like a large independent oil and gas corporation, that it is. Its not Exxon...don't try to run it like it is, quit comparing the company to Exxon, Chevron, BP & shell...
Cons
too much Nepotism If you don't know the Conoco golden handshake, you're just there to make your boss look good.

Reservoir Engineer
Graduate Reservoir Engineer (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXOctober 27, 2016
Great co-workers. Great benefits. The company is pretty large for an independent, so I would expect more layoffs in the near future until the company is more in line with the size of peer companies.

Project Lead, Maintenance, Rockies Operations (Former Employee) –  Dickinson, NDOctober 4, 2016
Long hours/dangerous work in the Oil Field/not for everyone/work outdoors in extreme heat and or cold. Not much family time/can be called on to work weekends as well/pays reasonably well

If market is good all is fine - downturn mens layoffs which happened in '15 & '16. I retired before that happened in June 2016

during layoff period office environment became toxic - "throwing people under the Bus" - Blame game - heavy office politics
