    Plant sites vary in quality of management, some good, some not so good.

    I worked at Occidental Petroleum

    Pros

    The average age in the plants is pretty high leaving the potential for career advancement and high levels of responsibility earlier on.

    Cons

    Work life balance is not good and the expectation to work days off is too high. Managers frequently change positions avoiding making tough decisions and poor managers are not released. The attrition of young engineers is exceedingly high and management seems unconcerned (from plant level to corporate level).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your young talent happy, challenged, and satisfied if you want them to stay. They are the future to the success of the company long term.
