Financial analyst with technical background.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Occidental Petroleum

ProsCash flow focus in a mature industry. Willing to take financial risks to achieve objectives. Has opportunity for early-career professionals due to demographics.

ConsWeak technically. Little interest or priority given to distributing knowledge. Does not walk the talk with regards to building competency.

Advice to Senior ManagementManage people, not just look up to see what your boss wants. Think beyond your own personal goals to build a company that can sustain and grow capability.
