    Pros

    Great company, great people. If you work hard, there will be always a person from management team to notice your effort. Work schedule can be adjusted to fit your needs. Opportunity is always there as long as you put an effort to achieve your goals and dreams. People are very friendly. Company participates in a lot of public events.

    Cons

    There will be always a person or a group of people complaining about things with no solid reason, which kind of annoying and affects rest of the team performance. Not sure if there is something can be done about that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to keep good people in the company as hard as you can so they will not pursue another job opportunity just because of slightly higher paycheck.

    Pros

    You don't realize how nice the work-life balance is at Exterran until you go somewhere else. I think the company does a great job in treating their employees well and developing engineers.

    Cons

    While other companies might send you to New York or Chicago for work, Exterran will send you to Midland, TX.

    I have been working at Exterran

    Pros

    The benifits are great. Overall Its a good place to work I don't have many complaints and would definately recommend Exterran.

    Cons

    I can't coplain much about job. The only time I was not happy with my job was about a year ago when the company had a layoff and everyone was unsure of there job. It left everyone feeling uneasy and tension was very high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One piece of advise to management would be the to stock more parts at the shop. This saves time and money.

    Pros

    I love working at Exterrran. Good benefits good company not very close to my house but the drive is worth it. Everyone there is like my second family.

    Cons

    Exterran definitely needs to hire more talented employees especially after losing alot in November 2011 and early 2012. So far they have picked up the pace and starting to hire more candidates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recruit more talent and continue with 9/80 schedule :)
