Pros

Oxy does not supervise their employs with a magnifying glass. This allows for you to feel comfortable working, and realize that you can exceed within the company if you are driven.

Cons

The oilfield can become redundant.

Advice to Management

Look at possibly giving more rewarding raises based on the volume of work that is put out by individuals.
