    Started out as my favorite job, but they couldn't handle their growth rate and it ended up as one of the worst.

    I worked at Boart Longyear full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay & benefits were good. Global opportunities. Great mid-management people (Many of the best people I know work there!); technological advantages give them clout; Work hard and kiss butts and you'll succeed... for a while.

    Cons

    Constant layoffs limit advancement (too much pay/benefits= laid off), cause constant change, add new responsibilities without additional pay/benefits, stress out employees who see their key staff leaving and wonder if they're next and lead to poorly trained/capable staff;
    Old boys club culture means you're either in or out;
    Too many managers trying to make a name for themselves because they have to or else;
    Executives are masters at bending the truth;
    Little care for wellbeing of employees from upper mgmt (low/mid-mgmt typically doesn't share in this):
    Harassment and inappropriate situations;
    FREQUENT no-win situations (primarily due to having too many bosses)- especially between drilling services and products (the resale/manufacturing division);
    Little to no concern for the future of employees;
    Do what I say/not what I do mentality;
    Sr. Management perks are rarely shared with the rest of the company;
    Lack of accountability;
    Lack of authority to effect needed change;
    Little appreciation for skill sets beyond your capability to give the desired answer;
    Frequent requirement to lie to customers;
    Code of ethics is what YOU should follow, but not necessarily Sr. mgmt.;
    Metrics are frequently completely disassociated from actual market conditions;
    Sr. Management thinks they know what's best for everyone, but since they're never in the trenches, they don't know what they don't know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start with fixing a few of the 'Cons...' Listen and truly respect the people who are doing the actual day to day work- they are the ones in contact with customers and your lack of support for them one of the main reasons why your company is only a $1.5B company instead of $5B/yr company. Stop overworking your employees by giving them too much responsibility and stop letting go those who have created the key successes you have enjoyed. Appreciate and respect people for the time they've given- let them retire rather than letting them go a week before they retire so that you save all of the benefits you would have had to give them- that's insanely toxic for your culture and demolishes productivity. Stop promoting yes-men to key positions. Promote reality rather than what you want to hear.
