    Current Employee - Summer Intern in Houston, TX
    Recommends
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Competitive pay; great management; challenging, applied projects (no busy work); very friendly work environment (at least in the Houston office); many activities for interns to get to meet one another, and to learn about the Oil and Gas industry.

    Cons

    They are not as reputable as one of the major oil companies; they do not have assets in as many places as some of the other major oil companies; no offshore production.

    Advice to Management

    Management was great from what I could tell; my manager was exceptionally sharp and seemed to be running things perfectly.

    Pros

    Oxy had GREAT benefits that was a huge plus. Very layed back enviroment and friendly staff.

    Cons

    Bad reviewing techniques of your work though, if you weren't promoted you didn't know why or why not.

    Advice to Management

    Management was outdated and hard to communicate with. Supervisors had been with the company for a long time. Very frustrating.
