    I worked at Dril-Quip full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great salary, room for advancement, challenging and educational work environment. Work at the cutting edge of the deep and ultra deep water drilling industry.

    Cons

    Managers (for the most part) do not stand behind their employees, and will not hesitate to throw you under the bus of problems arise from the use of their equipment. Don't be surprised if you end up as a scapegoat.

    Advice to Management

    More professionalism in the way middle management treats their employees would make this a great place to work for. More stick than carrot is not a good philosophy for developing employees.

    Pros

    Excellent salary and health benefits. 40-hr work week.

    High turnover. Work environment feels like a company that's still stuck in the 1980s. Cubicles, rigid hours and very low morale.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Why bother?

    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 Software is outdated and the company isn't willing to change..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 Management

    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 No flexible hours Senior management spends too much time trying to micromanage your everyday activities Benefits a bit outdated Preferential treatment No leadership positions available Titles do not mean anything unless management Poor training program Not consistent within the company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 Management

    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
