    I worked at Empirica full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A few good people employed with them - not many

    Cons

    Most of the employees working in the office are unprofessional and down right rude. Don't even get me started on the guys in operations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Office personnel should act more professionally, treat each other including the mud loggers with a little bit of respect. Maybe you wouldn't have such a high turnover rate. Some of them may benefit from completing a course in basic business ethics.

    I have been working at Empirica full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Worked at the original company for many years and enjoyed every minute of it. Since the recent buy outs it has become a match o who can can crawl over whom to get to the top faster.

    Cons

    Unethical and backstabbing attitudes while they nickle and dime their revenue generating staff away.
    Management constantly changes
    Favoritism
    Unorganized

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    good luck with that...

    I worked at Empirica full-time

    Pros

    They throw money at management, great marketing and great turnover (so openings are always available)

    Cons

    Unethical, everyone is quick to step on others to get ahead, favoritism, inconsistent practices. It is a shame that such a great company fell off the wall, many of their key field staff, support or managers have either left or are eagerly seeking employment elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop running a cheap service like it had the profits of a wireline company.

    I have been working at Empirica full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many 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.
