I have been working at Occidental Petroleum full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

low attrition rate; people are easy to get along with; the culture seems generally friendly and trusting; work from home 1 day/week in some functions; other functions work a 9/80; incentive to carpool or take the bus/van; excellent relocation package! They moved me to Texas when I was hired and I felt very well taken care of.

Cons

Nothing big that I can see so far but I haven't been here that long. My last employer had lots of "extracurricular" activities (i.e. communities of practice and affinity groups like the society of women engineers). I don't see any of that here. If you're coming from an ISO9000 organization this will be a bit of a shock.

Advice to Management

Define what an operational excellence strategy means in a company that wants to remain agile. Then challenge the functions to align to that vision. Start a quality program and use Lean/Six Sigma to drive cost reductions.
