    Pros

    Projects are interesting to work on, work teams are effectively utilized. A variety of assignments are available and relocations are available. Professional development is encouraged of the staff and readily available. Salary and bonuses are average within the larger companies of the oil and gas industry but usually lag the smaller independents.

    Cons

    Senior management is not cognizant of employee contributions and is self serving. Some locations are not that desirable and management needs to compensate for that. Organizational development needs some work at this organization.

    Advice to Management

    Quit the closed door policy and mentality, the company is a success because of the workers not senior management. Its hard to screw up assets that are of the quality that OXY owns.

    Pros

    Working for a petroleum company has its benefits. Most co-workers have a positive attitude. Pay is a little below average but probably evens our when the benefits are conisdered

    Cons

    Some old school cultural issues, corporate offices often dictate site priorities, its a little frustrating when your recommendations or projects aren't even considered in lieu of other priorities. I suppose that just corporate america at work.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the millennial mindset, people less than 30 never stick with the company because from the top down it is old boys club.
