    Pros

    9 years with the company and I don't have one bad thing to say. They shut down my old department and offered me a job in Texas, accompanied by a bonus for finishing the project we were working on, relocation money and a severance package even though I remained employed. Safety is a top priority and CEO, VP etc are committed to employees and the company. Benefits are second to none, opportunity for advancement is excellent and I plan on retiring here.

    Cons

    In 9 years with the company I honestly have nothing bad to say about Pioneer. This company is top notch!

    Advice to Management

    The only thing I would like to see is compensation increases based on time with the company. For instance my 9 years with the company I get paid the exact same as someone with possibly 2 years and the same job title. I would like to see some reward for dedication to the company. Other than that I completely trust Management and believe they make the best business decisions possible.

    Pros

    Very Professional, safety attitudes, & Team Players,

    Cons

    Not really no Cons, except. sometime lack of hand over notes.

    Advice to Management

    need to let personal of lay offs before you just drop the ball on them, and why are you laying off people that are doing the correct work, and the other ones, that are not doing the work,
    Like me, I attended every safety meeting, on Rig # 224, and the day personal never attended a single 1.
    Check the Sidewinder safety sheets.
