    I worked at Cactus Drilling full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great company, great benefits, new office, up to date rigs and equipment. Good coworkers. Room for advancement if you are a hard worker. Opportunity for extra work. Safety. Strong drug/workplace policy. 7 on 7 off, 87,5 hour work week, per diem, oil base mud pay.

    Cons

    Having to come in on off weeks during rig move occasionally, but it was not that big of a deal.

    I worked at Cactus Drilling full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefit package is good.

    Cons

    If a supervisor takes a personal dislike to an employee the main office will not speak to the employee to hear his/her story.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The rig hands are who keep the company going, just keep that in mind is all.

    Pros

    Pay, days worked and off

    Cons

    Well if you're not in with a "click", you can best believe that your time with the company is over! Then when you try to talk to them to find out what you did wrong, you are given the run around. You don't actually find out that you're fired until the health insurance company sends you a statement saying that " we are no longer able to give you coverage because you have been terminated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be willing to listen to ALL of your employees. And when you have orientation, don't preach that there is "no harassment policy" because that's a lie. Also maybe they need to look at the WHOLE PICTURE! You let a man go that would go to any rig and work, come in extra on days off yet not train him how CACTUS states that they will be trained! Your orientation is nothing but lies!!
