Not a good place to be a contractor

Landman (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

ProsThis a global company, so you'll be exposed to a wide range of information from people from many different disciplines. Not too many micro-managing types, which is good.

ConsThe pay is under market, and they treat their contractors in professional positions like employees, although they don't offer them jobs. The hire interns with no experience, and essentially throw them into fields where they might not be competent enough to be of value, but then let contractors linger in their positions for years. Also, they do not observe the MLK national holiday. I know it's a British company, but that just seems wrong.

This only applies to the Houston location. I don't know how London operates.

Advice to Senior ManagementUtilize the talent you already have! A GPA is not the best indicator of a person's ability to be a valuable asset to your company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
