Great People, but not so great atmosphere anymore
ACCOUNTING ASSISTANT C (Former Employee) – El Dorado, AR – May 26, 2016
Murphy Oil has a history of great jobs and work atmosphere. But in the last few years it has declined. Benefits and extras were cut short or out because of the decline in Oil prices, which is understandable. I had tried to promote within the company twice, but had a supervisor that would not agree to it. By the time Murphy Oil had their first lay off (which I unfortunately was a part of) it was very hard to be excited about going to work. And I loved the people I worked with, but the cut backs and the taking away of incentives made it hard to be excited about working there.
There are still great people there, and I value the time I spent there and the knowledge I gained. If oil prices start going up and Murphy starts hiring again, I would recommend it to friends and family.
