A Company stuck in the past unwilling to evolve

Project Manager (Current Employee) Houston, TX

ProsGood pay. Good benefits. 9/80 work schedule.

ConsOxy way is a total lack of structure, procedures and standards. Highly political. Employee evaluations based on perception not data. No career ladder. No employee thought out development. Some come to work and do their well defined job while others are responsible for an effort cradle to grave. The Oxy way is to make it up as you go along.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook to successful companies in your industry and learn. Deal fairly with employees. Think of their future and develop them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
