    I worked at Basic Energy Services full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and good work life balance... At our yard they frequently bought food for us. Occasion small gifts from vendors to Basic Employees at our yard.

    Cons

    Lots of family preference for jobs. Occasional power politics in management. Some managers are in their position for who they know not because of what they know.

    Advice to Management

    Offer better pay to employees. Whether management or hourly employees... Lots of management turnover due to low salaries.
