Oxy had both Pros and Cons

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at Occidental Petroleum

ProsOxy had GREAT benefits that was a huge plus. Very layed back enviroment and friendly staff.

ConsBad reviewing techniques of your work though, if you weren't promoted you didn't know why or why not.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement was outdated and hard to communicate with. Supervisors had been with the company for a long time. Very frustrating.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
