I worked at Occidental Petroleum

Pros

9/80 work schedule is great and they are good at rewarding their employees with time off and company get togethers. The managers are easy to get along with and will generally help you out with things. There are lots of benefits that you recieve from the contractors. One great incentive is that you start off with 3 weeks vacation and work your way up from there. They reward you when they do well.

Cons

Pay is not comparable with others and they don't seem to be doing anything to correct that issue. Advancement in your career field is limited by who your upper management is.

    I worked at Occidental Petroleum as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Very professional employees, willing to help most of the time.

    Cons

    No hands on experience for interns, Interns mentor was inexperienced as a mentor and hence wasn't able to educate the intern well.

    No opinion of CEO
