    I have been working at Occidental Petroleum

    Pros

    Very fast paced. Successful because of a "do more with less" philosophy. The culture cares very much about image rather than substance, so this may be a good fit for some.

    Cons

    Lack of training and appreciation for newer employees. Seniority and experience is given a large leeway, whereas newer techs and contractors are marginalized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please give the impression that you are willing to spend money and time to develop your newer employees. This should not be difficult.
