Pros

Very good company, good salary for an intership. Very good opportunities to learn and improve your resume.

Cons

Depending on the area, too much work or not. You have to live enclosed in the field, for 15 or 21 days.

Advice to Management

They should use the people they have available, and give them more freedom to create new things.

    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.
