    I worked at Occidental Petroleum full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work was fairly easy and relatively straight forward to automate. Fellow coworkers were friendly and easy to get along with.

    Cons

    The company systems are a mess. One system did not talk to another resulting in a lot of extra work.
