    Pros

    Always have top of the line machinery and equipment. A few great co-workers became like family to me.

    Cons

    Safety regulations make it impossible to do the job the right way. There are so many steps involved with safety, you spend more time doing paperwork and JSA than actually doing the work. If you follow the safety procedures, it seems like everyone hates you. If you have a lazy person on your rig, he will be the first to get promoted, simply to get him off of your rig. Then, that person is replaced with another lazy person that came from another rig because they wanted to get rid of him.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify safety procedures. Some JSA's are a joke and it literally takes an hour to read them. Get to know your crews. Show up to the rigs a little more often so you can know who's doing a good job and who isn't rather than simply going by what your rig manager tells you.

    Pros

    The company is growing, fast. Lots of good talent in their workforce. Opportunities to grow with the company.

    Cons

    Some of their management are very inexperienced and are more focused on personalities rather than personnel assets and creating an accessible, structured environment. Haphazard approach to processes and procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to work with your staff, utilize and develop their strengths. Don't dwell on the little things....focus on the big picture and establish enterprise structures for that growth.
