Accounting (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – January 14, 2019
My experience with this company was okay. I had a couple of supervisor's, that were good people and some good co-worker's. Things change within a company sometimes and sometimes the changes are good for employee's or they are not and I realized it was time to move on.
I Loved my Job here and would not leave unless forced. 12 years and now I have to Leave, do to hours change and childcare. very sad day:( I went from contract to hired. I handle the chemical emergency line, toured the building, it was a little weird coming here its like your family. I wasn't used to that.
Most enjoyable part of job was having the respect of the first two supervisors. I learned the system I did for over 6 years and wanted to move onto something different to learn and didn't get transferred because upper management didn't want anyone leaving those areas.

Oxy's direct employees get their relatives and spouses hired at an above average rate.
Actually had an Oxy employee take credit for a years worth of my work then got his wife hired by Oxy to take my place.
Engineers are promoted to management with no experience or qualifications. Then they micromanage the technical staff to the point of stopping progress.
Adversarial culture toward contractors. Project management is severely lacking. They build facilities with no engineered drawings or any direction for the construction contractors. Then when the project is late and over spent they blame the contractor.
Good work environment and culture. People are always willing to train and help when need. The company promotes a collaborative work environment. Work life balance is great. Great benefit. Overall, a good company to work for.
