    Management was very poor.

    Assistant (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsI liked the community involvement.

    ConsManagement was very poor. HR failed to resolve any issues. Many men could easily have sexual harassment suits against them. The culture was counter productive. Many negative people.

    It's a great company with great people and has many opportunities to get loads of experience right out of college.

    Drilling Engineer (Current Employee) Midland, TX

    ProsGreat compensation and benefits, good people, loads of opportunities for experience from the beginning, different training available out of college

    ConsNever ending amount of work, lack of career guidance past the first couple of years, limited upward mobility, seems to be a lack of vision and forward planning from the executive level

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore career planning and guidance for employees, more forward planning for the company

    Great place to work with great people.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsPlenty of challenging work, and encouragement to do as much as you can. No one will ever try to stand in the way of you gaining new skills. Literally everyone is important to the team regardless of specific job title. The people are excellent as well and, for the most part, always willing to take the time to answer questions and help.

    ConsAlong the same lines, there is an endless amount of work and definitely not too much staff on board. Can be a good thing, but can also be overwhelming at times. Not a whole lot of structures and processes in place for the new and/or less experience people coming on board.
