Incredible place to work, too bad it's closing in Tulsa, OK
HR Regional Manager (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – September 6, 2016
Newfield Exploration Tulsa was an amazing place to work. The people are it's greatest asset and made everyday fun. The work was challenging and every day was different. Work hard, play hard and be rewarded at the end of each year. I will miss the company and my coworkers.
Great company with an eye for talent and good family values
Oil Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Myton, UT – April 10, 2016
I was always eager to return to work after days off. My co-workers were like a family. There was always support and mentoring whenever needed. Continuing to grow and improve oneself was highly encouraged. Whenever possible Newfield would supply the opportunities for growth themselves.
Benifits and work schedule
Company is beginning to lose that "team" aspect that attracted me in the first place
Office Services Assistant (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – March 2, 2016
In the position of Office Services Assistant, I was able to work with the entire office in one form or another, as well as other business units. I learned a lot while there. We set up meetings, ordered lunches, ordered supplies, and filled the needs of the various employees.
Great culture, free lunches, lots to do, great benefits

pumper/lease operator (Former Employee) – Myton, UT – February 23, 2015
My day would start with a tailgate meeting with all other lease operators in my group. Then I would go to the field. Pump approximately 15 wells per day. Make sure the pumping units were operating good, gauge and drain tanks when necessary. My co-worlers were great. always willing to help. The most enjoyable part of my job was the schedule. able to be home in the evenings with my family.
Lots of politics, turnover, and underqualified management
Facilities Engineer (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – January 28, 2015
Get in with the right people and you will do well. Politics plays a big role here. Lots of young technical staff, and a lack of experienced personnel to mentor. A constant state of turnover has lead to under qualified people in leadership/management roles.
Lead Production Operator (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – October 15, 2013
I would get up and get on the boat and go out in the field to check on all the platforms that I was responsible for. If the monthly BSEE testing was due I would do it. I learned a lot about monthly BSEE testing and well testing. I had good management at this job with communication. I liked all the guys that I rode the boat with and did all the monthly BSEE testing. The hardest part was getting to the platforms in the winter because of no helicopter, we had to boat and it would get rough.
I briefly worked for Newfield as a consultant ... for less than a year. Rig operations and foremen are supervised by (and assisted when needed!!!) mobile drilling superintendents in the field and dedicated drilling engineers in the regional office. They have two foreman on most rigs and have shared rig clerks to help with the IT and clerical workload on the location. I found the working experience personally rewarding.
Strong technical group with a small company culture.
Limited opportunity to work in different fields and areas, and downsizing risk during potential rig reductions.
HR Lead (Current Employee) – Roosevelt, UT – June 25, 2013
Newfield is a great Exploration and Production Company. There is a push to increase efforts to be more competitive and grow the company. They have great benefits and work to develop there employees with their realm of expertise to prepare them for other opportunities when possible. The challenges are staying ahead of the new laws and obstacles placed infront of every oil and gas company through state and federal regulation. The people are what the make the job enjoyable and push you to improve service, processes, procedures, or training.
People are outstanding and caring. They treat each other like family.
Materials Tech. (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – May 14, 2013

Recoginize your work and what you bring to the company.
