    Lots happening, lots to do, little planning and thus bad deadlines, leadership centralized in one or two people.

    Pros

    Comp is good, technology is always trying to push forward. Many good employees. Good breadth of technology and systems being used and thus good place to get experience and try different hats.

    Cons

    Company struggling to transform into a suitable structure for the future. Could use a revamp of upper management. Without proper planning and project management in place all deadlines are suspect and give the impression that failures continue to happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Key issue is the culture. Management up to even the director level is not trusted to make decisions. Culture comes from the top.

    Pros

    Company pays every 2 weeks good benefits, 401K, work is scattered throughout US

    Cons

    Work is scattered throughout US you can be working in North Dakota and then be sent to Laredo TX. Communication between office and field employees is bad. Equipment is older and needs updating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communications with those providing service.

    Pros

    Flexibility with work hours as long as you get your 8 hours a day/40 a week
    Great people that are interesting to work with
    Several departments and entities to work for

    Cons

    Upper management does not communicate well with others
    IT department lacks efficiency and has an online "ticket" system which often results in weeks going by before a problem being addressed - even if the problem is time-sensitive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees to improve morale and team atmosphere
    IT department needs new procedures and less control of system processes

    Pros

    Large company so not real worried about the floundering economy. We have a vast variety of products that some subs manufacture, but the majority of the revenue is generated by drilling.

    Cons

    Work life balance is non exsistant and the insurance does not cover preventative care. Time off is allowed, but only because the state makes them. Of course it could be fro the subsidiary I personally work for, can't speak for the others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you say you are going to do something , do it and document it.
