None in Houston, TX
on July 18, 2021
There were a lot of difficult people to work for, a lot of micromanagers. There was no work/life balance. It was not a positive experience.The pay and benefits were good.
Senior Automation Tech in Midland, TX
on July 17, 2021
Your experience will depend on the location and that manger. Mine was horrible and created an atmosphere of mistrust and fear. He treated everyone with contempt and threats. The very sad part was upper management knew this but did nothing about it as quality employee after quality employee either quit all together or asked for a transfer to a different area.

Not very impressed, I don't know what else to say really. They will promise promotions that don't come to fruiition. Management doesn't want to listen.
Artificial lift analyst in Denver City, TX
on June 30, 2021
Just pays well. Their are things that could be done but don’t have the man power or budget to do anything. Mostly I felt I was there to bandaid and give excuses of why we were not able to give the hire ups the answers of why things were malfunctioning or not working correctly. The automation is dated and never works correctly and it’s very ambiguous as far as what u think a well might be doing.
IT Manager in Houston, TX

Oxy is very loyal to employees as proven in the challenging events of 2020. The world is challenging. They hire good people and have minimal turnover. Compensation is fantastic and vacation is best I’ve ever seen. The rating system and career development need work, but overall, people who produce results, expand their skills, and work well with others do advance in salary grade and roles. It’s the best company by far I have ever worked by evidenced by the fact that I’ve been here nearly 10 years.
