Pros

Good pay and benefits.
Reasonable concern for the welfare of employees.
Intelligent, skilled workforce

Cons

Assessment of rotating schedule work hours found the transition from day to swing to grave in 8 hour sifts the best and a twelve hour shift rotating day to grave to day to grave the worst for the negative impact on the health of the shift worker. COP at this location used the twelve hour rotating shift.

    Pros

    pay good, people good, benefits good, vacation good... Quite a few quality managers but competition is fierce for positions associated with the quality managers. The career path for college new hires is extraordinary. For good or bad, family atmosphere. Opportunities to move to Houston after a few years in Bartlesville is the biggest incentive to accept a position in Bartlesville.

    Cons

    Bartlesville is a horrible location for both home and work. Career path for experienced professionals challenging. Endless parade of contractors and consultants with endless parade of interesting projects. Staff maintain the projects after the contractors and consultants implement the projects. The work is simply not challenging and stating as such is to the detriment of career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge those willing to be challenged. Encourage input from staff and eliminate the retaliation from management due to the input. Clear out of Bartlesville! The small town mentality is to the detriment of the "big city" company...

    Pros

    Good pay - comparable to other Oil & Gas Companies in Calgary
    Great benefits - medical, health spending account, personal developement account
    Good culture - fun events for team building, many charity events
    Amazing senior leadership team. Senior VPs and the Canadian President know many staff by name. It speaks volumes when SLT members take the time to chat with all employees, regardless of position.

    Cons

    Management doesn't always walk the walk when it comes to the core values
    It can be difficult to advance (position and salary)
    Many entry and intermediate positions have been moved to the US causing disjointed processes and additional work.

    Advice to Management

    Global processes don't always work....use the unique aspects of each country to your advantage instead of trying to make everyone conform to the US way of doing business
