Even though working in the oilfield seems like a good-old boys job, ConocoPhillips has a culture of respect and have promoted many women into upper management.

Projects come first so that can mean tons of overtime and travel.

There are definitely opportunities but you will have to overcome and outperform your male counterparts

Great flexibility for schedule, flexing the week, and working from home, and respect is standard practice.

It is very homogenous and white male centric. You will frequently find yourself to be the only woman in a meeting.

The policies and compensation are fair, but this is a male-dominated industry. It can be challenging for women to get into leadership positions and to be treated the same as men. It is much harder as a female to gain the amount of respect as my male counterparts with similar backgrounds and work ethic. There is a great network of women in the company, and many excellent female employees to learn from.

Work schedule is flexible, and family time is valued. Women in leadership is rising more and more every year.

Many of the employees here are men over 50, so the mentality is a little behind the times with regard to how they view women. You probably won't have difficulty getting in though based on gender and I know at least my start pay was equivalent to men coming in so that's a plus. Promotion may be difficult as there is still a lot of unconscious bias toward women. Maternity leave doesn't exist but you can use short term disability. Don't have a baby when the market is bad though, because they don't have to let you back. They won't tell you that but if there aren't any projects to put you on, they can lay you off. Very project dependent as far as how your experience will be. Some bosses frown on flex time and some have no problem working with your family schedule within reason.

I have been at Intel for over 2 years in engineering roles. As a young woman starting out her career - it has been very tough to fit in especially in the male dominated groups. Sometimes I feel like a fly on the wall. But if you have passion for what you are doing you can make it anywhere because that should outweigh every decision you make in your career. But not sure how much longer I can stay in the "boys club". I can't really express my creative self. And they will work you to death so be sure it is something that you love.
