Great benefits but no chance for advancement . Have 9/80 schedule-sometimes! Great 401k and bonus structure.

I worked at Occidental Petroleum

Pros

9/80 work schedule and good benefits package

Cons

Little chance for advancement. Dying technologies and plant closures Little variety in work and cancellation of projects makes for high frustration levels.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not "punish" those who do not wish to relocate every few years.

    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.

    Pros

    Decent benefits. Work life balance and 9/80 schedules are good. Overtime is available.

    Cons

    Too much change from upper management. Understaffed departments causes large work loads and extra stress.
