    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at EOG full-time

    Pros

    Freedom to make an impact without being micromanaged. Be prepared to accept the consequences of failure as much as success.

    Cons

    Competition is freely picking people off as the company lives under the veil of belief that "no one can do it like eog"

    Advice to Management

    Decentralize promotions, hiring, and employee movement. Division management is in place to use culture based discretion in the decision making process, no need for HQ upper management to sign off on every move. Open up to contractors becoming company employees.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Open minded, plenty of responsibility, fast paced, focused on returns and long term growth along with options for advancement for some

    Cons

    Too focused on cutting costs gets in the way of core business and actually hurts the bottom line. Too many sub groups/departments with too much competition

    Advice to Management

    Hire good/smart people and listen to them, don't tell them what to do

      Pros

      Benefits, PTO, good bonuses, usually competitive salaries, decentralized and agile environment, company is still very financially sound

      Cons

      The culture is changing, and not for the better. Slowly becoming more "corporate", bureaucratic and political. Absolutely no telecommuting, little to no schedule flexibility depending on the GM of the division you work for, can be highly political depending on the department you work in, can be a highly political performance review process, basically no management training for supervisors (people are promoted based on...

      Advice to Management

      Find a *good* and *thorough* management training program and implement it. Communicate with (train) employees on how to properly do a 360 review. Eliminate terrible managers and micro-management. Allow for flexible schedules and working from home for those departments that it makes sense to allow. Allow flexibility for working parents. Re-structure S&E in a more logical way. Possibly better train HR on mediation of conflicts....
