    I have been working at EOG full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    EOG has some of the best geologic assets and completions technology in their peer group. This makes them a very financially strong company with a great future ahead of them.

    Cons

    EOG had such rapid growth over the last decade due to their risk taking culture of employee ownership of success. Due to the increase in size, they have lost this edge. The company now blatantly promotes on Senority rather than Merit and is becoming heavily more process oriented than project success oriented. It has become more important to do things the 'Companies' way rather than a more flexible and better way.

    Advice to Management

    Come back to the roots of the company, the culture that allowed for the rapid growth and success.

    I have been working at EOG full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - EOG as a whole is a great company.
    - C-suite is excellent
    - Great upper level leadership company wide.
    - Work/ life balance is generally great.
    - Long term incentives have the potential to be quite lucrative.

    Cons

    - Some good management has left Denver division recently.
    - New mid-level management doesn't have sufficient experience managing people, their technical skills are also lacking.
    - Extreme micromanagement. Good engineers with experience are treated like children.
    - Trying to improve things is discouraged, encouraged instead to keep your head down and keep doing things exactly like they've been done in recent memory. Don't try and make changes or rock the boat. Innovation is a dirty word.

    Advice to Management

    - Trust your experience technical people to make good decisions. Extreme micromanagement and trust issues create an environment of distrust and bad communication.

    I have been working at EOG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    At EOG there is a lot of opportunity to push yourself and your talents while providing real value to the company. The company is small enough to get noticed but big enough to have challenging problems that not many places have.

    Cons

    Sometimes a chaotic environment where things are changing constantly. Must be able to adapt and deal with ever shifting deadlines and a lack of project management.

    Advice to Management

    Work on project management and resource allocation. Although the environment is set up to foster innovation, a lot of times the chaos creates a lot of inefficiencies and short cuts that hurt the group in the long run.
