    I have been working at Occidental Petroleum full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Its good to have worked here so you know what its like to work for one of the worst employers out there. It gives a basis of comparison with other companies that are much better to work for.

    Cons

    Politics, hostile working environments, immature cliques, poor compensation on both salary and benefits, very limited working locations, no investment in employee development, everyone works to avoid accountability. Oxy has been described internally as a 'Contrarian Company' which is something I very much agree with in terms of being a preferred employer. They are definitely opposite to their peers.

    Advice to Management

    Difficult to provide advice as the mentality seems to be that this is just what the people at Oxy want their company to be.
