Pros

Competitive pay; great management; challenging, applied projects (no busy work); very friendly work environment (at least in the Houston office); many activities for interns to get to meet one another, and to learn about the Oil and Gas industry.

Cons

They are not as reputable as one of the major oil companies; they do not have assets in as many places as some of the other major oil companies; no offshore production.

Advice to Management

Management was great from what I could tell; my manager was exceptionally sharp and seemed to be running things perfectly.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Management was outdated and hard to communicate with.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

    Pros

    Good pay, Good Benefits, Culture is fairly respectful, Quiet, Very Low Pressure

    Cons

    Leaders are timid and gullible, Not much emphasis on productivity, Majority of employers are long-timers with severely outdated skills/knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Don't fear change so much. Learn to cut your losses. Potential is a great thing, but it is no substitute for productivity.
