IT Consultant (Former Employee)
Houston, TX (US)

I worked at Occidental Petroleum

ProsPlenty of work; variety is available

ConsToo much work; little or no appreciation for a job well done. Pigeon-holing is rampant: if you're good at something, it's the only thing you're good at.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
