    Great boss, lousy company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Midland, TX

    ProsI work with great people, have a great boss, pay is decent, occasional bonuses, flexible schedule

    ConsHigh turn over mostly due to lay offs when management has made poor financial decisions and has to cut costs... employees are usually the first to go... continuous change to bonus structure (when we get one).

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management needs to value the employees more, remember they are the ones who get the bills paid and make you your paychecks. Also when you are implementing new policy stick with it for longer than two years before trying something different and turning employees world upside down again... Key has become a bit like a roller coast in the last several years.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Short term consultant - experience was just "ok".

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood size company with room to grow in your career.

    ConsI was a short term consultant but for the short time and the experience left me feeling empty. Not the team environment, warm fuzzy fealing I have received from other consulting roles but again it was a short term project.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore focus on employee moral/personal growth is needed.

    It is what it is.

    Vacuum Truck Operator (Current Employee) Tioga, ND

    ProsThere are good hard working people here. You are taken care of as much as possible. Key strives to hire the best that it can. They were plagued with poor management desicions in the beginning but over the years they have slowly rectified those mistakes and are gearing up for a good team to be on in ND.

    ConsIf you have worked in the oilfield the flow of work is unstable. Same here at Key Energy some months may be slow then the next thing you know your working your tail off.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRetention is key keep the employees you have. Make yourself competitive with salaries and base pay.

    A good company overall

    Hot Oiler (Current Employee) Levelland, TX

    ProsKey has good benefits as far as the insurance goes. They also have a 401K that is available. The yard I work for has some good people that I work with.

    ConsThe yard I work for has very little work so we often have to travel into other areas to work.

    If you take pride in your work, you'll be just fine.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsKey has grown dramatically in ND this last year. New equipment, housing and offices. With the growth comes available positions for those looking to advance.

    ConsWith that growth and the lack of workers comes premature advancements in employment. From Driver to Supervisor in 6 mos etc.. Recognition does not exist. There is no raise in plan for those employed 1 year.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBuild a relationship with your employees that will allow their neutral perspective to be considered. Install a compensation package for 1 year employment.
