    Pros

    Large company with a small company feel. Due to decentralized structure, you work down the hall from folks doing all sorts of different jobs for the same project. Leads to high collaboration and teamwork.

    Cons

    Hiring structure, pay raises, promotions can ambiguous and non-consistent. Often times outside hires are paid more than their inside counterparts.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the decentralized structure, and also be more up front with folks about promotions, moving, raises, etc.

    I have been working at EOG as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place. Relaxed everyone is friendly. Started in one position hoping to get the opportunity to move to anothe. After about 6 moths I was asked if I would like to switch rolls. Yes!! If you work hard and are a good employee they do notice!

    Cons

    In this down time it's hard to get accepted as employee. But they still treat you well and I still have my job and I still love it here

    Pros

    They have great benefits, such as 4+ weeks paid vacations, sick time, stock options, bonuses. They also have a great working atmosphere and great people to work with. Travel is 25%

    Cons

    They tailor to much to the customers instead of what might be best for the company technical wise. You contract for a while. Some usually at least a year before you're even considered to be hired.

    Great company with vision toward the future of the energy industry. They treated all of theyre employees well as far as I could see,

    Just to be honest and upfront with your employees, because we need to know the good and the bad of things to come.
