    Pros

    Ok salary, benefits, logistics. Could be a lot better without all the favoritism.

    Cons

    Hard to move up unless you make friends with ppl in upper management. I personally know someone who literally told me that he has a friend who's a big shot at the Houston office and he's making sure he's name its not on the list for layoffs. This guy it's also one of those ppl who's always trying to get out of doing any work. Always acting like he's busy only when the tool pusher it's around. Wish this company would get rid of sorry people like this. You see them in every rig. It's horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting your friend's ahead of actual competence. conflict of interest? Isn't that what is called?

    Pros

    Good Stock and 401K options, Friday afternoons half day.

    Cons

    Long work days with overwhelming global supply chain issues at every point. Several out of date systems that bog work flow. Heavy debt issues with vendors struggling as much as department staffers.

    Advice to Management

    Good Luck working out the Peoplesoft merger issues!

    Pros

    good infrastructure for any offshore company with poor top side medical support which contradict it own good infrastructural management and progress. Exception is the rule that is the best part of the company.

    Cons

    Poor out dated quality of manpower.

    Advice to Management

    good efficient system needed to judge man power and performance.
