    I have been working at Tesco Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Pay is competitive within oil and gas industry and benefits are good.

    It is very easy to get promoted within 2-3 years, sometimes even less.

    Company is very safety conscious.

    Cons

    Lots of processes to get anything done thus making one's work harder than it actually is.

    Turnover rate is relatively high within company, thus promotions are due to back-filling. This leads to people not being experienced with their job.

    Lack of communications between different departments.

    Lack of training within organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less micromanaging and processes. Need to retain and develop current employees rather than constantly hiring new ones.

    "Red Flag"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Tesco Corporation

    Pros

    Great Pay for similiar jobs at other companies
    Benefits are good
    Lots of options to move around the company because of back filling all the people that leave, people move around all the time and never do the same job very long...this is also a con because no one really masters what they are doing.
    Good Social Responsibility, lots of options to volunteer
    Focus on healthy living, gym available, fitness classes, etc.

    Cons

    No work/life balance, it is hard to take any of the vacation they give you.

    TURNOVER: should have been a huge red flag to me. No one stays here more than 2-3 years, if that. Some new people are around from growth, but the large majority are from filling all the people that quit. So many people leave every week, most folks are numb to the news that someone left.

    Horrible communication. It is almost impossible to get help or information from anyone. Everyone is too busy. On a personal note, the social communication is next to nothing. No one knows anything about each other's personal lives/situation...they don't care, no one talks to each other at the office, not many people go to lunch together. It is a weird office dynamic in that regard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop being so immune to bad managers that do not have any leadership capabilities. Need to focus on retaining employees, rather than a constant revolving door!

    Pros

    Ok hours. Ok money. No problems with management.

    Cons

    Cant plan for anything unless you take a day off. On call 24/7

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How about more of a set schedule. On 3 weeks off 1 or something of that nature to plan activities with the family.

    Current Employee - Field Service Technician in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Tesco Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Knowledgeable technicians and flexible work schedule. I enjoyed working in the field with no supervision and being trusted to complete tasks with trust. Pay is very competitive.

    Cons

    Business is very up and down meaning you never know when you might have long periods of time with no work or pay. Training is still being developed and not up to par with the demands of the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on sustaining the company and less on developing different services that technicians have little or no knowledge of.

    Pros

    People are generally nice. There are maybe some annoying people but not many.

    Cons

    Salary is never increase. Even when it increased, flat increase for everybody so it decreased my motivation.

    Good company to work for but the systems in place make your job harder than it should be.

    Current Employee - QHSES Coordinator in Lafayette, LA

    I have been working at Tesco Corporation

    Pros

    Good 401K match with great benefits. Time off usually isn't an issue.

    Cons

    Upper management is out of touch with what really occurs at the local level. Company does not place high value on employees who have worked their way up in the ranks. Company places too high of a value on pedigrees rather than actual job experience and ability to do the job competently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward the hard working employees you already have and stop looking for a new widgets elsewhere. Develop the talent you have and give back to the employees.

    Pros

    Flexibility and pay are very good for most people in the Corporate office.

    Cons

    Vacation is discouraged and there is a serious lack of leadership and accountability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold managers accountable and show them how to hold their subordinates accountable. There is no such thing as "too much" communication.
