    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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Company's Bonus' very poor in view we run around 96% efficiency. Leader in North Sea

    Technician (Current Employee)
    Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)

    Pros3 weeks off. 1 hours flight to heli-port. Maintenance & Production Team are first class to work with, everybody very helpful.

    ConsSometimes too many projects on-going at same time. Old redundant equipment very slow if at all ever removed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate the teams you have in place on these old challenging platforms. Miracles are sometimes performed by experienced operators to prevent production shutdowns. This years bonus did not reflect all our hard work even though we are currently & have been for some time the No1 Operarting Efficiency Company of the North Sea at 96%. Pay rise due make it a good one.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
