    I have been working at EOG for more than a year

    Pros

    The people that work here are great. The office culture is warm and welcoming.

    Cons

    Takes a while to work away from being a "full-time temp" to a "permanent" employee.

    Advice to Management

    Lock in the young workers who are willing to work hard by offering more permanent employment status. There is a low level of job security when known as the "full time temp" which forces us to search elsewhere for employment just-in-case.

    Pros

    On the data science team, there's incredible freedom/flexibility/creativity/support for working on whatever you want, and learning/applying whatever technical skills you want. Honesty and meritocracy rule, and my team is like my family.

    Our onboarding process could be stronger.

    Great job and keep it up. Our management embodies our culture and values 100%.
