Occidental, great projects, great workers, but management needs some work.

Team Leader (Former Employee)

ProsProjects 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.

ConsSenior 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 Senior ManagementQuit 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Oxy Houston is a terrific employer!

    Legal Department (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    I worked at Occidental Petroleum full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: Great salary. Great benefits. Secured job. Annual bonuses. Annual raises. Everyone here is educated, hard working and intense. If you see yourself… Cons: Conservative work environment where only upper management have a say… Advice to Senior Management: Consider integrating suggestions from those who actually do the work on the ground rather than from those who've only just studied Organizational Management. If… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
