Pros

They hire from the contractor pool when the need fits, keeping people who are at the top of their game.

Cons

They often let good employees leave if the budget does not allow for hiring, creating a higher turnaround than needed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow for stretching of positional budgets to allow retention of key employees. This may raise the budget overall, however the quality of the work returned will be much higher.

    Pros

    Good benefits and a good place to start your career. Certain functions still have a healthy culture and friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    The middle management is ridiculous. HR is a complete nightmare. IT is getting better but still terrible and slow. When business is suffering there seems to be no immediate reaction to fix challenges due to politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why the Schlumberger model still? The geo model isn't efficient. Are you trying to kill me?
    Sincerely,
    Your profit margins

    Pros

    A safe and family oriented environment. Top team of motivated, dedicated, and driven engineers working hard to provide value for their clients in any environment.

    Demanding schedule that makes family life difficult to manage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep hiring top candidates that will be ready and willing to lead the company over the next several decades. Stay committed to the core values of Integrity, Leadership, Learning, and Teamwork. Continue to reward employees for their dedication and hardwork and keep nurturing an environment of technology driven solutions!
