    Pros

    Great managers who are willing to work with you, support you, and back you up in any situation. Flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    It is a serving job so of course the pay isn't the greatest in the world, but that comes with the territory. Great for a transition job.

    I have been working at Danos as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Danos contracts for several Major oil and gas companies. If one doesn't work out, you can move on to the next one.

    Cons

    You are still working contract work. You will be working with a Major oil company that may have employees giving bad reports on your work. Its usually their word that counts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is doing a good job. Raises are giving based on the contract the employee works on. Good employees are getting looked over and some that aren't so good are not. Not a great system.

    I have been working at Danos full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Can get your foot in the door with global companies in the Oil & Gas industry.

    Cons

    Can be a bit offshore focused.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to treat employees differently if dictated by position. For example, laborers have different needs than onshore employees.

    Pros

    Provides and encourages Team work, Self development. Acknowledges talent and skills. Family type mentality by treating everyone as if your were their cousin or neighbor

    Cons

    Head quarters is located in Houma, Louisana. In retrospect there are ups and downs as with any business but This company seems to have very few downs. Per Diem pay may not be as good as team members would like it to be but it is sufficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See who really does the whole Job.

    I have been working at Danos

    Pros

    The team at Danos & Curole is a fresh thinking group. Team meetings I am involved with are collaborative, forward thinking and we all leave with tasks that allow us to grow and create in our particular fields. Decisions aren't made haphazardly; they are well thought out, explored and then executed as needed to move the company toward the stated vision within the core values.

    Cons

    Employee work locations are spread out all over the world and they reside domestically in over 14 US states. One of the biggest cons is the challenge in communicating effectively and staying in touch with all of them.

    I haven't found many cons, but I'm not looking for them either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to reach out the the field to stay relevant and understand the true challenges and accomplishments of the employees.

    I have been working at Danos

    Pros

    Set schedule, great Human Resources and Payroll Department. Steady work. Decent medical benefits and 401k. The training department is top notch when you have to get training scheduled.

    Cons

    If you have to get in touch with your Account Manager you need to have a month set aside for making phone calls and sending emails. You only get uniforms once a year. Management doesn't really take into account the concerns employees have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what employees have to say. The Account Managers need to be more involved with the field employees. Offer some type of bonus system to employees.

    Doesn't Recommend
