    Pros

    Everyone here is extremely helpful and the managers have your back. The work can be fast paced, but I love the vibe that the whole company gives off.

    Cons

    There can be some miscommunication between floors so it is best to talk to people directly instead of through email when given the option.

    "Lead Engineering Tech"

    Former Employee - Lead Engineering Tech in Irving, TX

    I worked at Pioneer Natural Resources for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits and employee incentives. Company works hard to keep employees during a low commodity environment. Lots of internal opportunities during high commodity times.

    Cons

    Tries too hard sometimes to keep employees so tend to keep bad ones to the detriment of group morale. Sometimes questionable promotional decisions. Communication is lacking despite apparent attempts to be transparent. Has lost its "family" culture it used to pride itself on due to how large in size its gotten. Employees are more anonymous to HR and upper level managment

    Advice to Management

    Make HR representatives get to know who they represent. Upper management needs to be more in touch with lower echelon employees to better understand how decisions affect them.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Pioneer values its employees and pays them accordingly. Obvious benefits like healthcare and 2:1 401k match are great, but even unexpected ones like a free gym and cafeteria go a long way towards increasing the "total" compensation. Work environment is challenging and rewarding.

    Cons

    The company still prides itself on being nimble, but as it has grown it has become more corporate and harder to pivot. Can sometimes be difficult to see where you stand as far as your long term career potential is.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to lead us through these difficult times. Continue to encourage quick reactions and thinking outside the box. I would really like to see us employ the Google "moonshot" strategy so we can become the industry leader in all aspects.
