    Pros

    Middle-management in the drilling-evaluation and pressure pumping business, both technical and supply chain, are really wonderful. They are focused on developing their people and teams to improve the future of the company. Time off is adequate and work-life is up to you and how far you want to go, like anywhere else.

    Cons

    Upper-leadership is perceived as short-sighted with a predominant focus on their own pocketbook. Especially with the foreseeable changes to the organization, allegation and morale is at an all-time low with little done to counter. Response to the market is very impulsive and greater scale than our nearest two competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Employees of this company really do live and breathe the core values. This is a huge factor for most that I know in their decision to work here. Don't let certain other companies change you for the worse. The core values are the same in word alone.
