    Great incentives, you get paid for all of your time. They are very good about taking care of their employees. Very safe place to work, they keep the plant clean.

    On call most of the time, we do get our days off but when its busy you can expect to get a call out.

    Great Company to work for

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits all around. Work environment is great, let you do your work as needed and does not stress over you sitting in the office all day. Oxy has learned people perform with a good balanced schedule of working from home and still getting things done out in the field. The change of mentality is nice.

    Cons

    Hard to move around or promote from within. Process of transferring to other business unit takes really long. People tend to bus roll you so you have to be sure you cover all your bases on your work as others will point blame really fast. Does not provide many training opportunities in house.
