EOG Resources Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

EOG Resources, Inc. is a company engaged in hydrocarbon exploration. It is organized in Delaware and headquartered in the Heritage Plaza building in Houston, Texas. The company is ranked 181st on the Fortune 500.The company was named Enron Oil & Gas Company before its separation from Enron in 1999.

A perspective of an in house employee of EOG Resources says it all: "Bad managers that make you feel as if you're less, found reasons to skip on bonuses, single out certain people for things others are allowed to do. They let incompetent staff move into management positions with no degree and little working knowledge of technology just because they were grandfathered in. Working for EOG resources was a waste of eight years of my life. Their managers and management system in this company is very discriminative, uneducated and dishonest, they have no loyalty to the people and men and women that are putting the shirts on their back’s, after this experience I do not wish to work for another oil field company. Management went around me and talked directly to those working under me, but that is an issue I have a lot of experience with. It was a really negative experience for many employees."

"Management looks out only for themselves"

Former Employee - Linux Systems Engineer says

"Micromanagement, unprofessional management, borderline unlawfulness, worst work culture"

Former Employee - Safety Specialist says

"Management is horrible, at least in southern New Mexico. They can’t ever decide what rules to enforce and the standards only apply for for the bottom ranks of the company. Safety is only a priority if it means keeping investors happy and law suits a bay."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"EOG has too many internal politics and an homogenous workforce"


"Noone talks to each other. It is a very heads down job, with little interaction with others in your department. Very hard to find connections with people on a personal level because of this."

"-Company deliberately keeps employees in the dark -Management lacks the backbone to stand up for employees -Employee opinions disregarded -Unrealistic expectations/deadlines -Promotion difficult to obtain"

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"Will give raises to people with less experience and less time invested with the company. Management gives out raises based on favoritism."

"Communication was absolutely horrible especially w the superintendant he would sort of tell u something to do do but not finish telling unor answr his ph and not tell u where job was and treated u like u was so so so much beneath him and he walked on water"

Lead operator (Current Employee) says

"This job was only good for un educated students or homeless people. the amount of pay really did not match the amount of hours you put in. I would never go back to this company. They also did not put any money back into the equipment."

Pipeline technician 2 (Former Employee) says

"Working for EOG resources was a waste of eight years of my life , Their managers and management system in this company is very discriminative, uneducated and dishonest, they have no loyalty to the people and men and women that are putting the shirts on their back’s, after this experience I do not wish to work for another oil field company"

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) says

"Older workers are not appreciated for experience. This company uses your experience to train younger workers and then looks for ways to get rid of you. It is a great place for younger workforce; but if you are older, you can forget it."

Business Analyst (Former Employee) says

"Management is terrible. Some of these managers shouldn't have those positions at a McDonald's let alone a large corporation with the lack of people skills and no technological skill what so ever. Directors will fly in every so often to tell you your job isn't guaranteed because it's not important and they'll only keep the lowest paid version of your job to save this billion dollar company a marginal amount of cash."

Water resources foreman (Former Employee) says

"There were a lot of politics and behind the scenes decisions. No job security and no loyalty Management tells one thing and does another. And a lot of shady deals that are very negative to the public Cons: No benefits"

Accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee) says

"It's a tightly knit organization where it's WHO you know not WHAT you know. I was there 3 years, no promotion, token pay raise and threatened by supervisor and manager. They have little respect for tenured employees or your skills and knowledge acquired. No procedural manual, no independent thinking allowed, no respect for personal boundaries and exceptionss made for employment of young non-degreed individuals. It's stressful, sad place to work and there is never time to get to know others in your department. Cons: Turnover in management, being kept in the dark, lack of direction"

Production Analyst (Former Employee) says

"A very stress full place to work for, manger did not even speak to you or acknowledge you. I do not recommend the Midland office to work at. I was told other locations are not at all like the Midland's office."

Terminal Operator (Former Employee) says

"They will keep you as a contractor and promote you as company. Some people have been there about 10 years and are still working as contractors. As long as you are a contractor you do not get employee benefits."

Production Accounting Analyst (Former Employee) says

"As the workforce was a temp workforce, the job insecurity was very tangible therefore closeness between coworkers was non-existent. No overtime was allowed at most of the admin and clerical positions so your workweek was stressful because deadlines were still expected to be met. Cons: The admin and clerical workforce consisted of only temp employees, these same temp employees had very slight chances of being hired as permanent employees, high turnover of admin and clerical employees."

Linux Systems Engineer (Former Employee) says

"Very bad experience at EOG due to very poor way of management."

Field Technician (Former Employee) says

"EOG Resources is an oilfield service company that offers reasonable pay, but no benefits for the first year. The hours are long and the environment harsh. The job outlook is poor due to low oil prices, so there is little chance of advancement. Cons: Hard work in the weather, not chance of advancement."

Control Room Operator (Former Employee) says

"Poor work environment, too many hours, break every labor law known to man. Poor ability to control basic human resource issues. Poor communication between upper and lower managers"

IS Advisor (Former Employee) says

"Company/culture is becoming very cut throat. Working in the IT department has changed. Upper management really only wants to hire internal developers. EOG prefers young developers they can get 5-7 years out of them then get rid of them and bring in a new group. That is the new model they have in place."

Lease Operator (Former Employee) says

"Could be a great place to work if they would get with the times and pay well tenders even close to what other companys are paying."

Water Resources Consultant (Former Employee) says

"I would not recommend working for this company. They have a very particular set of managers who have no regard for your safety of mental health. If you are not buddy buddy with upper management you will be discriminated against and belittled."

Production Operator (Former Employee) says

"provides little to no training. Cons: management changing direction often"

Customer Service (Former Employee) says

"You are expected to always answer you phone even when not at work and to respond 24/7. Days are long and there is no limitation to what you may have to do. Respect is not given by management to contractors or underlings as well as company. Harassment occurs by favorites and tolerated. Attitude and work ethics are poor. Management often blames people under them for their mistakes often when they had nothing to do with it. Management does not back its people. Cons: Poor management, low key harrassment, incompetence by management"
