    Good place to get your feet wet

    Mudlogger (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsEmpirica has a large support infrastructure that is used inefficiently. Some good long-term assignments.

    ConsPoor pay, poor equipment, lack of competent coworkers and management, Too many placeholders and not enough driven employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMany complacent field employees, few to no happy/satisfied employees. This is the attitude the current management plan/style is producing. Pay your field staff more, a LOT more. Show them they ARE appreciated. Platitudes don't pay bills and incite more resentment towards the management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Favoratism,Unprofessional, Low Pay (Compared to other)

    Mudlogger (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsPro's? Are you Serious? They have health insurance with a huge deductible

    ConsTOO MANY DEADHEADS which is probably why they pay so little compared to other Surface Logging Companies. Logging software is the crap. Slow too. Huge turnover in employees. They charge crazy high day rates in order to meet huge managing & clerical dept salaries. Not the best company to be with during slow times. Low pay to field hands with promises for higher pay, but never pan out. They make double on mileage than employee.Dont make the mistake of working for Empirica. Their history and reputation is actually the worst. And dont let Managing dept post below fool you. Thats just an example of how crooked, underhanded and coniving they are. They will stop at nothing to get there way.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat field hands better. They make your paycheck possible.
