    I worked at Diversified Well Logging full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Management responsive to scheduling; usually can accommodate conflicts and (sometimes) fill a need for additional work.

    Cons

    Just the cons concerning the drilling business - sometimes are slow and sometimes extremely busy. Might work some site in east Ohio one day and reassign to central PA to work nights the next.

    I worked at Diversified Well Logging full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The pay is awesome.
    There are some unit managers that are amazing mud loggers with years of experience.
    Some field supervisors really work with you to get time off.
    Lot's of work if you want it.

    Cons

    Really outdated equipment.
    No structured training program at all, trial by fire outlook for employees.
    Work own tour way too quickly with no raise or compensation.
    Some unit managers really don't care at all.
    The milage / day rate policy is not good at all.
    Company is biting off way more than they can chew right now, extremely stretched for employees
    Getting supervisors attention can be difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a structured training training program.

    Former Employee - Mudlogging/Geosteering Geologist in Eighty Four, PA

    I worked at Diversified Well Logging full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good, but you will be putting in lots of hours to earn it. Up to 84 hours per week.

    Cons

    Not adequately staffed to provide needed breaks to field personnel. Equipment was, at the time, clunky and difficult to maintain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more time-off and breaks for individuals that want/need them. Communicate with them occasionally and ask them how things are going. Equipment needs updated.

    I worked at Diversified Well Logging full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay and you can work as much as you want to make it very profitable

    Cons

    Hard to balance a life outside of rig sites. Usually had trouble with them taking money off of expenses and pay checks. Very difficult and frustrating to try and recover said money. They would usually blame it on job vouchers even when they were filled out correctly. Also felt like this job hurt my professional credibility more so than helping me advance my career. Overall it was good experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more office personal in the HQ and field offices to make field employees feel like they have support for there hard work.

    Pros

    The pay is excellent for the work we actually do. The job is very easy for those who are diligent in continually learning the systems and techniques.

    Cons

    Some very basic trouble-shooting skills are needed. May be away from home for extended periods of time, which can be hard on some people with families and friends they feel they must see every day.
