I worked at Occidental Petroleum

Pros

Most training is by computer based training (CBT).

Cons

Layoffs are common, little to no information sharing and teamwork lacks. Very little cross training.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work with managers on building teams and help people achieve promotions rather than hinder them.

    I worked at Occidental Petroleum

    Pros

    Scope of work is interesting and never a dull moment.

    Cons

    Management has "their favorites"..very quick to blame and does not pass or share information..Meetings are literally blame sessions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have periodic performance appraisals that are meaningful to employees. No honest conversations among groups.
