Pros

Decent work environment, peers care about one another, senior techs willing to share knowledge with entry level mechanics . State of the art on the job training. Excellent safety emphasis in place in the yard and on the field site . Shift leaders show genuine concern for employees. Senior Maintenance Supervisor supplied some tools at his expense.

Cons

Layoffs are unfortunately prevelant company wide. However, layoffs have been the fewest in North Dakota compared to other Baker-Hughes US locations. Senior management can be micromanagerial but do show concern and address issues at hand in a timely manner.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Show the hard working employees and shift leaders appreciation for their work ethic and willingness to to learn. Get rid of the "job milkers" and "pay check" gatherers. They are the number one reason productivity is not at it's fullest potential and hurt the company's reputation.

    Pros

    The company is "younging' its workforce.
    Good benefits package.
    Excellent Technology Centres.

    Cons

    Senior management completely out of touch with workforce.
    Morale very low amongst workforce and lack of direction from senior management reinforces this.
    Company always first to lay-off people and the last to start hiring.
    Company happy to be number three in all it does.
    Company is CAPEX averse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a clear vision of where the company is headed and convey this to the workforce.
