    I have been working at Pioneer Natural Resources full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and decent pay.

    Cons

    Not open to change or process improvement. Terrible management, who often do not know how to lead. Company is built around engineers. They would rather an engineer fill a management position in a non-technical department instead of hiring someone with proper experience. This not only lowers the efficiency and success of the department, but also limits the amount of knowledge lower level employees can learn from their management team. An employee shouldn't have more knowledge and experience than their manager.

    Pros

    It’s a great company to work for with excellent benefits!

    Cons

    Many projects are started with unrealistic deadlines that cannot be met and are abandoned before competition. This can lead to frustration for the team that worked hard to try to meet the deadline having put in many extra hours to try to get it completed.

    Great environment, the company hires extremly intelligent people so everyone is a go getter and very willing to work above and beyond expectations.

    Cons

    It's the oil & gas industry so there seems to be lots of volitility. They've sold off many assets and most recently had massive layoffs and divestitures of over 1000 people, who were all excellent and contibuted at higher levels ! There's a feeling of uncertainty at the present time.
