    Pros

    - depend on your supervisor, you could have a nice work/life balance or all way around, luckily my supervisor is a nice one - great technology - a lot of support to develop through many training

    Cons

    - please take more time to appreciate the employee... good peoples are leaving the company because of lack of reward - need a better bussiness strategy and consistency to make it a real "world class service company", especially in Indonesia. - too many cut in no of employee.

    Advice to Management

    - Even if you have a cheap contract you should do and support the best for it. Dont sacrifice your front line people (field crew) because the contract is cheap while in the other place peoples are well supported because the contract is better. - invest more in people and equipment. - Need to kick out some people thats not worth to keep.

    Pros

    The base salary will be slightly bit better than competitors.

    Cons

    The day rate and meal allowance is not good. Local management can treat you bad. There are policies but not everybody knows. Little or no appreciation on the good job being done. Golden boy rules is a bad thing. No salary increase.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employee.
