WPX Energy going bankrupt
Project Manager (Current Employee), Tulsa, OKJuly 6, 2015
Pros: None
Cons: Bankruptcy shortly
The stock went down another 5% today. The internal rumors are that the company is going bankrupt. I need to get out before management dissolves the company. I do not want to go through bankruptcy with this company. They need better management and more funds. Bankruptcy is definitely coming shortly. I sold all my stock at a loss today just to get out of it before it becomes worthless.

Good company to work for.
Measurement Technician (Former Employee), Parachute, COJune 11, 2015
If you aren't related to someone or best friends from the 3rd grade, good luck getting hired on with them. It's a pretty good ole boys type organization. If you can get in, work hard and keep your nose down. Great benefits and compensation.

Land Data Tech II (Current Employee), Denver, COApril 1, 2015
WPX is a good company to work for, especially if you live in Tulsa, OK. They do care about good benefits, even if the salaries a bit low. The people I worked with were absolutely great. They do believe in doing the right thing, even though the industry downturn has put quite a few people out of work.

Lots of uncertainty and shuffling of people
Reservoir Engineer, Appalachian Basin (Current Employee), Tulsa, OKMarch 10, 2015
Pros: good severance
Cons: isolated
Am sure of where we are going. Not sure if will get there. We know about the layoffs - but don't know the reasoning. I am getting the most out of work by mentoring with another engineer. He helps me with the science and I help him with software especially database (Access).

Young Oil & Gas Producer- Lots of potential
Sourcing Specialist II (Current Employee), Parachute, COFebruary 6, 2015
Pros: benefits, work life balance
Cons: advancement, salary w/ respect to competitors, politics driven environment
As spun off from Williams, this company has a world of opportunity ahead of it. It is at times a little wrapped up in what is termed as the "Good Old Boy" world. Everyone knows everyone, and business flows with those mixes most of the time. This is good and bad at times. Management is young at the local levels, but boasts many combined years of experience. There are many positions with under qualified people in them, sadly.
