    Pros

    Solid job with regular pay. Therre is oppertunity to work over and get a few extra weeks in for the year.

    Cons

    Management is hard to deal with and stuck in there ways. The talk the talk but don't walk the walk.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to listen and trust the chain of command they setup and hire below them to make decision. Its manage not micro-manage!

    Pros

    I am still trying to figure this one out.

    Cons

    Was hired with 7 others 3 started at a higher wage with way less experience. Was told that everyone started at same wage. I chose not to use kneepads. Food is unhealthy, rooms are the ghetto of the North Slope.
     They make you fly home on Sundays only which is very expensive and means less hometime with family

    Advice to Management

    Don't be 2 faced

    Pros

    Highly ethical organization focused on diversity and individual contributions of employees throughout all levels of organization. Strong leadership and active globalization and international movement.

    Cons

    With fast growth comes tremendous change and all the challenges therein. Staffing levels and re-organization of corporate and business groups present both opportunities and significant setbacks from client focused efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Communication plans need to become priority with creative and improved methods.

    Pros

    Competitive pay
    Decent benefits
    Some good employees
    Concerned about safety
    When I needed personal time off they allowed it. They also are understanding of missed flights etc, as long as it doesn't happen on a regular basis.

    Cons

    Lied about pay
    HR is a joke
    Extreme favoritism
    Hard to get recognition for a job well down
    Lots of office gossip
    I have 7 bosses - 6 of which are unnecessary
    Hard to move up unless you are friendly with the hirer - then it's easy

    Advice to Management

    Needs some restructuring as well as monetary incentives for a great job or for completing a hard job on time.

  7. Work environment is good, but pay is lower than other shops and upward mobility is restricted by the good old boy system

    Pros

    The Job is enjoyable if you are satisfied with being a mechanic. They have very good equipment and tools for use. The shop environment is like any other, but with more comrodery, they go the extra mile to try and keep you satisfied with where you are.

    Cons

    The pay is lower than similiar jobs on the slope with other companies, they seem to bring in management from outside so getting promoted into a managment position is limited, and I feel very rare. The good ol'boy system is in place on the slope and CH has not been able to erraticate it in their management.

    Advice to Management

    Review management positions for the opportunity of finding a good manager in the common ranks of the work place. May want to restrict current management from, 'dangling a carrot', to keep employees around a little longer with no actual intention of promotion.
