    Pros

    Great way to earn money quick, some weeks I was in overtime after two days of work, but keep in mind that it is a high stress and dangerous job.

    Cons

    the program I was hired into was cancelled, I was one month away from completing the training!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You make some rules that look good on the surface but to transfer those to the field setting just doesn't work. Safety is a top priority but some of your rules put you into a more dangerous position than one should be in.

    I worked at BJ Services

    Pros

    Money and Benefits were OK
    Severence Package when Laid off after 4 years was decent (1 week/year pay + unused vacation and 3 month extension of Medical)

    Cons

    Personal contribution to business success completely unrelated to bonus
    Very little management support
    Poor product performance
    Penny wise and Pound foolish

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We spent an enormous amount of time on safety training and a class defining Value Added Profits. We spent ZERO time targeting new business, new products, and markets, Basically, as long as you stayed sober and never had an accident, no one noticed you were alive.
