    Pros

    Great support from new mid level managers! Love the new changes brought to PKD. Responsive to customer needs and concerns.

    Cons

    Need to be patient. Big gap in personnel who has been with company 20 plus years versus newly hired personnel.

    Advice to Management

    Land some rigs to work and solidify PKD reputation.
