    I have been working at EOG full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fantastic management. They really care about their employees. The benefits are the best I have ever seen. They do a good job of making their employees feel appreciated. The flexible schedules are also a major plus.

    Cons

    This is a really great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at EOG full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    -Salary, annual bonus & vacation time

    Cons

    Extreme micromanagement and very weak leadership. Managers in Denver are only capable of receiving and executing orders from the VP and consistently fail to provide thoughts and ideas of their own.

    Advice to Management

    Look beyond the “fast talkers” and individuals that over-sell themselves for management. This will be difficult for them since Houston only wants spineless individuals for management that can only say “yes sir”!

    I worked at EOG full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, generous vacation not a lot of red tape. Young career professionals will have the opportunity get a diverse experience

    Cons

    Company has out-grown the ability to operate like a small company. Very little organizational career development structure. Lack structure in many areas including safety and environmental and engineering design. Lot's of family member selected as preferred hires

    Advice to Management

    Truly utilize the performance review process to develop and engage your talent and not just a formality. Consider looking at other companies Sustainability Plans to identify the interest of your stakeholders

      Pros

      The people are what make this company fantastic.

      Cons

      The company needs to progress with the times to allow more flexible work - life balance and the ability to work remotely would be a big step in the right direction.

      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at EOG full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Very team oriented, highly efficient, technologically driven and has a great company culture.

      Cons

      Tends to hire people based on college transcripts and internships. Missing out on good people from smaller universities.

      Advice to Management

      Be mindful of company size, strive to maintain the current culture (not an issue now, but may be in the future).

      I have been working at EOG full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      The company is elite in the industry (everyone wants to match EOG performance) The company offers massive stability (people didn't get fired during the last downturn; large sense of job security) Not as much red tape as majors Young division level management in general that's agile.

      Cons

      Becoming a "big company" along with the negatives that entails (not a major yet though) Stability is likely factored into the pay (lower than less stable peers)

      Advice to Management

      Fight having a big company feel Match peer group pay in-order to retain young engineers Don't let EOG have a superiority complex (other operators have some good ideas from time to time; it's worth looking around sometimes)

        I worked at EOG full-time

        Pros

        Top notch benefits including stock grants.

        Cons

        Decentralized structure leaves individual areas / offices at mercy of local manager.

        I have been working at EOG full-time

        Pros

        There’s a lot of activity here, which means there’s quite a bit of opportunity to learn different things. Since it’s a growing division there’s a lot of places where you can improve the outcome, and you have the freedom to work on a diverse range of projects.

        Cons

        Midland is a horrible town to live in, it can’t be understated. Management for the most part doesn’t care to get to know anyone. And the level of technical expertise seems to be very low here. The salary isn’t competitive compared to other operators in the area, and the office amenities are almost non existent. For those reasons, the attrition is very high.

        Advice to Management

        Pay people more to live here. Get a gym, a coffee shop, a day care, anything.
