    Pros

    Pay is a little more than most frac companies. The management isn't too bad
    They try to keep hands with the company

    Cons

    The equipment sucks. Most senor hands don't think they should have to work. It's not what you know it's who you blow if you ever want to run anything else but sand

    Sweet Shop. No respect. Pick and Choose what rules to enforce. "Buddy Buddy System"

    Do the world a favor and Fire Your Self's.

    Pros

    Archer bought Allis Chalmers, so the people that I worked with were still family like. Lots of available growth opportunities as well.

    Cons

    No communication from the higher ups. Many poor business decisions causing many good employees to be let go. They seem to have a reactive approach rather than a proactive.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your employees. I can nearly guarantee that all of them are very unsure of their job status and how long they will be employeed for. Also, treat the companies money as if it were your own. Dont just spend to spend.


  7. Dynamic work environment turned out to just be a chaotic work environment.

    Pros

    I have flexibility in my work hours and can work from home when life requires, so work/life balance is great.

    Cons

    MAJOR lack of communication at all levels. I've been with the company for more than 2 years and there has been no corporate vision or unified sense of direction & purpose. The new CEO hasn't communicated anything to the company, at large. Too many changes in senior management. Too many changes in job responsibilities with no communication of who is doing what. Too many ERP systems and too little IT support causes gross inefficiencies. No room to grow - no promotional opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace transparency and communication!
