    Pros

    Growing organization and management trying to get the best out of the group.

    Cons

    Growing organization and management still has some individual mangement style verses more of corporate organization for size of company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to analyze talent and make sure you have the right qualified person in the position, management as well as worker.

    The current oil and gas industry is suffering due to the price of oil and subsequently loss of business across the drilling industry.

    Pros

    Wide variety of interesting mechanical, EE and CSC/CPE work. Opportunity for field exposure and excellent training. Filled with the smartest dudes in SLO County.

    Cons

    Constant restructuring of upper management, uncertain future in light of oil price collapse. Typically callous corporate relationship between management and employees.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the product better; learn to allocate appropriate resources to major project, avoid constant re-arrangement of company priorities.

    Pros

    Good job. Great potential. Great co-workers. Great bosses!!

    Cons

    Severe under appreciation for MWD hands. Away from home a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Im a DD who began as a MWD. Why does a DD make twice what an MWD hand makes? Its time to even the pay. This tells the MWD hands that they are not an important part of the company. When honestly they ARE the company. This company has a lot of upset employees. Its time to respect the people which are advancing this company into the technical future it is entering. Its time to make a change very quickly. If a strike were to happen, the company would shut down in a matter of hours. Time for some appreciation or this could be the case.

    If you are an MWD please express your concerns. I have now seen the other side and realize how much the MWD does in comparison to the Directional side. Corporate needs to understand what makes this company.

    It has been interesting to see the poor adoption of company culture by "legacy" employees. They are the worst thing.
