    I worked at Parker Drilling full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very nice people to work with. Salary/Benefit package is a bit below market but okay. Pay 100% for van pools which is better than many companies. Location in Greenway Plaza is nice as it is close to so many restaurants and near downtown and the galleria.

    Cons

    Bonuses are minimal except for upper management and those that negotiate prior to accepting an offer. Most employees have either been there well over 10 years or under 2 years. The gap is due to very high turnover. Employees don't seem to stay very long and PKD is famous for firing employees constantly. There are little to no procedures in place and since most of the employees are new, there is a lot of chaos and confusion. HR has the highest turnover so don't look to them for guidance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees and invest in them. Training and team building go a long way. Stop the bleeding and try to retain your employees so that you're not having constant turnover which is very costly to the company.
