    I worked at Smith International full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    They really cared about their salary and hourly employees. Great benefits and compensation and the ability to learn more through education and training. Very community oriented through philanthropic means.

    Cons

    Upper management is not really regarded as useful once they hit 55 years of age. Certain senior management will not promote unless you are degreed from their alma mater.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Older people are valuable.

    Pros

    Expanding world market that allows employees the ability to work almost anywhere in the world. They offer company vehicles and competitive salary

    never sure how the oil and gas market is going to hold up in a new economy and social pressure for alternative energy solutions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I can only speak on my local management and just because the industry has traditionaly been a good ol' boy environment doenst mean that promotions should be based on friendship instead of merit
