    Pros

    If you are looking for a starter job to grow your knowledge and experience, you are at the right place

    Cons

    they will start you off with a fantastic offer right out of school, even comparable to what oil companies offer, but promotions, raises, and recognition's don't happen often. You will notice soon management plays FAVORITISM.

    I have been working at Dril-Quip full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Most employees are friendly and generally good people.

    Cons

    Salaries are below market average and no indication that the company is improving their attitude.
    Annual raises are poor (less than 3%). Raises are same for most everyone, regardless of performance.
    Hourly employees work some overtime at time and one-half. Salary employees are over-worked and under-paid.
    Too much micro management. This seems to be in every department.
    Software is outdated and the company isn't willing to change..
    Different treatment for men and women. The good 'ol boy network thrives here.
    Employee training is poor or non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your employees and listen to what they have to say.

    Pros

    Great people to learn from
    Good place to start your career
    Great manufacturing experience
    Good facilities
    Good experience gained from work
    Pay is good

    Cons

    No flexible hours
    Senior management spends too much time trying to micromanage your everyday activities
    Benefits a bit outdated
    Preferential treatment
    No leadership positions available
    Titles do not mean anything unless management
    Poor training program
    Not consistent within the company about raises/promotions some groups give better promotions/responsibilities/pay raises

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employ a training coordinator to properly train new engineers, learning on the job is great but sometimes there is more training required
    Add flexible hours to keep and attract talented engineers
    Micromanaging salary employees should be done by supervisors not senior management
    Give engineers some responsibility with promotions
