    An innovative company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Bakersfield, CA

    ProsGreat benefits. Family oriented company that encourages sons, daughters, wives to apply. Promotes good health from the top down and fully embraces safety culture.

    ConsHuge age gap in technical staff. Offices are only in California so there will not be any movement out of California.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to cross train young professionals by sending them to other fields outside of California to gain industry experience. Keep doing what you're doing.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Very process oriented

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsProcesses can be good for learning and avoiding 'repeat' mistakes

    ConsBeing too process oriented suffocates innovation and can lead to inability for attaining long-term viability

    Advice to Senior ManagementProcess should NOT come before Function - process should SUPPORT function. A process that is built without accounting for function FIRST is doomed to failure as no process is perfect. All processes (if desiring long term viability) MUST be an animal that is capable of EVOLVING. The only way a process can actually evolve is by acknowlegement that it is supported FIRST by function/design.

    More frustrations and headaches than positives...

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCompetitive compensation package, good benefits, flexible schedule, 9/80 work weeks, lots of internal training opportunities, very process driven company,

    ConsVery little opportunity for new engineers to be mentored, operations management was clueless on day to day activity, intergrated teams did not work together well but rather seemed to have an every man for himself mentality.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAera Energy has the potential to be a great company to work for if the right leadership is in place. The Bakersfield office has a completely different feel than the field offices, and this is unfortunate, because the Bakersfield office is a well run machine.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
