    "Outstanding Company"

    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Manager in Artesia, NM
    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at EOG full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The culture of the organization aligns with my values. EOG is non-bureaucratic, data-driven, and believes that every employee is a business person first. The company empowers it's young employees and expects them to make impactful decisions that help drive the business. Three times a year the executive team flies into town and spends the day with the division. Mostly, it's the young professionals who are expected to present. What other Fortune 500 company do you get to present face-to-face with the CEO?

    Cons

    The company is decentralized so changing job roles sometimes requires you to relocate and move divisions. In my experience this has resulted in excellent opportunities professionally but can be very tough on families.
