    I have been working at EOG full-time

    Pros

    Very good benefits, with plenty of time off.

    Cons

    Core management are holdovers from the Enron days. If you work for one, and they are not happy with something, you will not get a chance to either move up or laterally. Do not take a position here unless that is what you really want to be doing, as your chances to move are about nil. This is especially so in the A/P department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you have a good employee who shows an interest in another position, and has the aptitude for it, a good company with give them a chance...a poor one will not.

    Pros

    Great Folks to work with. Pay is low for non engineers, but fun guys to work with.

    Cons

    Unqualified Managers; Need to look at professional support drpartmentsand shake out the good old boys and fill the positions with bright ethical professionals. Ethics is needed at field level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire Professional staff outside of the engineering positions.There are Grade A engineers present at the company, you need marquis staff associated non engineer professionals.

    Pros

    Good benefits, good package. Nice office space.

    Cons

    IT seems like a different arm of the company that is so insular to the rest of the company. Does not promote internally and I felt like I was working for monarchy. Communication seems to be lacking at multiple levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Career progress needs to be managed better.

    Pros

    Most supervisors are great, supportive and encourage free ideas to move projects forward to completion. There is a wide unsaid rule of family comes first.

    Cons

    Management could benefit from taking their own advice by allowing employees to take charge and let projects take their course. Management has the attitude of "get it done at all costs, no matter what it takes". Many times this takes away from the ultimate goal of the project and end up costing more money.

    I worked at EOG

    Pros

    They know what they're doing. Sound operations, great business model. The best thing is they have a record of being one of the first movers into a major play. The company benefits, and they pass it on to their employees.

    Cons

    Decentralization makes it difficult to "settle down" -- who knows where you will be moving to in five years?
