I have been working at Occidental Petroleum full-time
Great working environment, with nice offices and minimum of distractions. Good for the Geoscientists who need room to think creatively, as well as for the Geoscience Technical staff to solve problems, etc. Good balance of diversity and inclusiveness. Have appreciated the variety of duties and challenges in my current role.
Too much detail on timekeeping, especially on non-exempt employees, some of the roles shouldn't really be classified as non-exempt. Current price of oil has stressed out employees, company is cutting costs as far as they can but has to be done to stay in business in the low oil price environment. Recognize employees are working hard to keep costs down.
Advice to Management
Improve the PSA and PRA plans with better funds such as Vanguard funds, use Vanguard as the plan administrator, have a 401k brokerage option and put in good funds such as VPMCX, VWELX, etc.
