Enjoyed my time at Hess
Sr. Staff Associate (Former Employee) –  Steubenville, OHAugust 2, 2018
A positive work environment. Company cares about morale and developing their employees. Management style is not to be micro managing.

Allow for employees to volunteer work hours to the community.

They are proactive in doing employee events as well as rewards and recognition to employees
Pros
Employee events and etc.
Cons
Company is down sizing

Hess Corporation
Document Controller (Former Employee) –  Minot, NDAugust 2, 2018
It was an Awesome company to work for prior to 2014, however management is currently more concerned about profits rather then keeping good employees. I think there are a lot of changes in store for Hess in the future.

A good company to work for, but needs to concentrate harder on remaining a good company to work for
Sr. Engineering Technical Specialist (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 2, 2018
Hess Corporation has been a good company to work for during my 20+ years there, and I have met, worked for and worked with many good people during that time. Hess believes strongly in creating a safe working atmosphere for its employees and continues to make positive strides in promoting a culture of safety. The work/life balance is good, and Hess offers a comparable compensation package.

However, with constant organizational changes and a couple of layoffs in as many years, there is currently a culture of mistrust and worry. Employees with experience are now gone, leaving employees with little experience to take over. Those remaining employees feel stretched with no real sense of direction or guidance from management, and no trust that management is listening to employees' concerns.

While overall, Hess Corporation is a good company to work for, it presently needs to concentrate much harder on keeping themselves a good company to work for.
Pros
flexible work hours, good work/life balance, 9/80 work week (every other Friday off), annual incentive bonus, 401(k) savings plan, company-paid learning opportunities, company-paid conference opportunities, subsidized Starbucks coffee and snack shop, first-class employee dining room
Cons
top-down management, yes-man mindset, horrible office politics, no clear direction for employees, promotion is difficult, HR extremely slow to take employee issues seriously or to act upon those concerns

Very good culture. Professional employees and consultants.
Consulting Deepwater Drilling Engineer (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJune 27, 2018
Hardest part of the job was managing the work load with all the meetings that were taking place on a daily basis.

Was able to stay up to date on deepwater technology. Hess very open to new techniques, equipment and services. Very good culture and a good work environment.
Pros
Have a Fitness Center and Cafeteria (not free, but very inexpensive)
Cons
Not enough office space.

A Day working @ HESS
Lease Operator (Former Employee) –  Watford City, NDJune 25, 2018
Relentless back biting by co-workers and management. They prefer to hire unskilled labor such as fast food workers, ranch hands, ect. No matter your oilfield experience or talents your either in the click circle or your OUT!

Great team but Management is slipping.
Wellsite Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Minot, NDJune 7, 2018
Great pay and opportunities to learn but long hours and required traveling 2 weeks per month. The best field personnel I have ever worked with. Learned a great deal from co-workers with decades of experience. Recent changes in management and re-structuring has pushed some of the most talented people away.
Pros
Great pay
Cons
Being away from home 6 months out of the year.

Forced out
Retail Associate (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAMay 16, 2018
The store was new and after the grand opening and budget cuts several employees were left in limbo waiting to be placed on the schedule for hours to work. When asked if we were still employed the answer was yes just not enough hours or any locations that needed attendants! After 2 weeks of no scheduling I had to look for another positions and am sure they listed it as voluntary abandonment
Pros
Pay
Cons
Shift changes; Overnight shifts

Pros
Easy job
Cons
No official breaks and on your feet all day

Not the best place for professional women to work
Sr. Contract Specialist (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 8, 2018
Male dominated as Oil and Gas is. Senior women did very little to promote other women, just banded together with male dominated mentality. Not helpful that VP had no children and understood little of that work life balance.

Overall those that were promoted were not performers, but part of the good-old-boy network.

I was there for many years and the company changed tremendously towards this over the years.

High focus on safety, even when it doesn't apply to your job. Lean Manufacturing focused. Support functions not nearly as recognized and E&P and D&C functions.
