    I worked at Empirica full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A few good people employed with them - not many

    Cons

    Most of the employees working in the office are unprofessional and down right rude. Don't even get me started on the guys in operations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Office personnel should act more professionally, treat each other including the mud loggers with a little bit of respect. Maybe you wouldn't have such a high turnover rate. Some of them may benefit from completing a course in basic business ethics.

    I have been working at Empirica full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Worked at the original company for many years and enjoyed every minute of it. Since the recent buy outs it has become a match o who can can crawl over whom to get to the top faster.

    Cons

    Unethical and backstabbing attitudes while they nickle and dime their revenue generating staff away.
    Management constantly changes
    Favoritism
    Unorganized

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    good luck with that...

    I worked at Empirica full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The only good thing is they have a lot of work. They will give anyone a shot to try to work. You can take off when you need or want to.

    Cons

    Everything. They kept sending me green night hands that have never seen a rig. I worked several overtime hours training these people with no extra incentives, and I had to eat those hours, they wouldn't pay them. The pay scale is ridiculous, if you tell them you make this much at McDonalds, they'll pay it regardless of experience. The experience guys that just changed companies are getting paid much less. Extremely micro managed. Overall worst experience I have ever had. I worked for them for 6 months. I have been a mudlogger for 10 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the morons. Pay the good guys, lose the trash. Get ready, 10 more decent guys are leaving soon.
