    I have been working at Dyna-Drill Technologies full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lots of overtime. Schlumberger is taking over, though dyna drill is fighting it so they can make things work ini favor of upper management.

    Cons

    If you want a balance of family and life this is not for you. Management is not honest enough. They don't seem to value their workers. They don't value at all your personal life. Office can fail and the floor has to cover their mistakes by working more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be right, be righteous. Value your lower level workers more. Your job is suppose to be a place you enjoy working because a worker will give more of themselves to the company.

    I have been working at Dyna-Drill Technologies

    Pros

    The opportunity to grow is available for those who are proven to be reliable
    The managers are understanding during the training process
    The schlumberger acquisition will provide future opportunities with a mega company
    Quarterly town hall meetings provide an outlet for new ideas from employees and it provides an opportunity for senior management to provide insight into the direction of the company.
    Some of the best supervisors I have ever worked for.
    lOvertime is available for those who have the apptitude to learn the secondary machines that need to be operated outside of their primary shift.

    Cons

    Some team leads have the position b/c of time at the company.. They are not necessarily knowledgeable or leaders. Honestly, there is absolutely no confidence in some of the team leads knowledge.
    Its a young company so the culture is not necessarily concrete. A lot of experimenting is being done right now to find out what is the best way to do certain things. The starting pay for operators is kind of low for 3 shifts and 8 hour work days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest a little bit more into your staff ( increased hourly pay, more training opportunities on cnc machines). And increase starting pay to recruit more experienced potential employees

    I worked at Dyna-Drill Technologies

    Pros

    Good salaries compared to competition.

    Cons

    I don't believe advancement is looked at as fairly as it should.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down and recognize your employees with more than just a community meeting stating "good job everyone".
