    They are very unsettled right now. Layoffs, then hiring, then layoffs. you just have no idea what they are thinking anymore. It's very sad because it used to be the best. Oil and gas industry can be volatile

    I have been working at Pioneer Natural Resources full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pioneer has an incredibly qualified leadership team, amazing compensation/benefits, and a staunch commitment to retaining its employees. Truly the best Independent Oil Company out there.

    Cons

    Success at Pioneer, much like other oil and gas companies is dominated by a traditional, conservative cultural approach. Resource groups provide the illusion of successful diversity initiatives, but Pioneer is still deficient in terms of empowering non-traditional leaders in oil and gas, namely women and minorities.

    I worked at Pioneer Natural Resources for more than a year

    Pros

    Pioneer treats their employees wonderfully. You are expected to work hard and diligently, but they provide free lunches, an on-site gym, half day Fridays, etc. There are courses to help employees boost and sharpen their skill sets. The company communicates clearly with its employees through a series of Town Hall meetings. Tremendous benefits. Also, I've never worked at a company that cares for its employees on such a personal level. Finally, the Innovation Team-led Shark Tank is a interesting way for anyone, at any level of the company, to pitch an idea and get it funded so it can be tested and implemented fro greater efficiency, safety, etc.

    Cons

    Oil and gas is a commodity-based business, it's volatile.
