    Work is good when it is good and management leaves you alone

    too little work and when you do get to work its only for a few days

    I worked at Precision Drilling as a contractor

    Pros

    The working environment was okay. The team I was apart of really worked together well.

    Cons

    Management treated us like we weren't humans. There was a lot of closed door dealing and they kept us out of the know.

    I worked at Precision Drilling full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good people. Good training facility in Houston. Great pay and benefits and good equipment to work and train on. Good opportunity to move up.

    Cons

    Not an aggressive company in that they do not keep on people who try to work hard and show initiative. They tend to keep people with more seniority.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the area management in finding which employees to keep working and which to let go. Also stop trying to cut cost in the maintenance and cut it in overhead in the tech center.
