    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...

    Pros

    Great benefits, great resources, competitive pay, great culture and values.

    Cons

    Fragmented departmental structure, poor communication, poor transparency.

    Advice to Management

    Form departments based on areas of scope. The fragmented departmental and reporting structure within the company often leads to delays, confusion and even mistakes and incidents. Create more opportunities to promote from within for clerical and administrative positions.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t over promise to the business side.

    I have been working at Pioneer Natural Resources full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, free food, 1/2 day Fridays

    Cons

    Middle management disconnect, poor training, VERY poor system, overall disorganization.

    Advice to Management

    There's high turnover in accounting for a reason. Job duties and expectations are not accurately (or truthfully) disclosed in the interview. I would recommend Pioneer as a company, but would advise others to stay far away from accounting.
