    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.

    I had a great manager who allowed me to grow professionally.

    Geo science driven which is good in general but engineers may feel under appreciated

    Pros

    Company takes care of their employees, offices clean and spacious, good central location.

    Cons

    Little room for growth as a support staff employee, especially amid the current oil downturn. Not really much company can do about that.

    I worked at EOG (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work schedule and good wage. EOG was very good to work for. Clear concise assignments. They also allowed you to think for yourself. Good upper supervision to work for.

    Cons

    Working away from home but that comes with the territory. Very little downside. Do what was expected of you in a timely manner and you could get along easily. Getting laid off due to downturn in oil market.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not sure I have any advice for upper management; just try to keep loyal dedicated employees in the realms of your company for as long as they are willing to produce results.

    I worked at EOG (More than a year)

    Pros

    This company is the pioneer and leader in optimizing and developing new drilling technology including fracking. They run a tight financial ship and I expect them to be one of the survivors during this down turn in the oil and gas industry. Would happily consider returning to work with them during next upturn.

    Cons

    They are probably among the highest paying if not the highest paying and it is for a reason. They demand a lot (which could also be considered a pro) and one usually finishes their hitch completely exhausted.

    Advice to Management

    Reward competence more than who you know type mentality would help I believe.
