Oxy has great benefits and compensation, as well as freedom during the work day.

Pros

Oxy does not supervise their employs with a magnifying glass. This allows for you to feel comfortable working, and realize that you can exceed within the company if you are driven.

Cons

The oilfield can become redundant.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look at possibly giving more rewarding raises based on the volume of work that is put out by individuals.

    Pros

    Results oriented, many good people to work with.

    Cons

    Focus on short term Business Results at any cost is similar to the BP business model for disaster.

    Unexplained layoffs of very good people. Layoffs at peak stock price. Layoffs just before Christmas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remedy the hire-and-fire culture of fear and productivity will increase.
