IT is so tightly centralized that it is counterproductive.

Pros

Its in the energy sector. The pay & benefits are decent.

Cons

In general, uncertainly of continued employment due to energy price fluctuations. Specifically, the only input the supervisor / coordinator gets is from the Lead Tech onsite. Therefore, if you work for a good guy its great, but if you work for a back-stabber you will be the scapegoat for every problem that pops up. Plenty of press releases at the corporate level but only a trickle of feedback from supervisory management. The field people need a few administrator privileges to fix minor problems without being completely dependent on the IT department. I've utilized the local computer shop to fix hardware problems rather than send it an IT department that requires weeks to fix and return a computer. It is unclear if senior management understands how lack of voice and data connectivity hampers ability to solve problems in the field.

Advice to Management

Revamp the IT department and make it more user-friendly. SOLV hold times are horrible & some support technicians don't seem to understand software problems.

    Pros

    The People. BHI is full of great people. The technical talent here is second to none. I have met and worked with numerous engineers and scientist who are top notch and enjoyable to work with. I have built friendship, and have found almost everyone enjoyable to work with.

    Cons

    The pay is marginal at best. They think they can have top notch people and services for marginal costs.

    Advice to Management

    This is the time to focus on technology and continue to build and strength our technology.

    Pros

    The benifit package is great...health insurance is one of the best. If you are looking for a job that you can get away with just about anything Baker in casper is where to go

    Cons

    there are long hours. The lack of leadership in this location in amazing. Seems like there are lots of promises made by management and not kept. The pay is good but you have to hound supers to do their jobs so you can get deserved raises. They expect there everyday employees to be clean as a whistle but most supers in this location have a number of DUI'S.

    Advice to Management

    in this location they need to CLEAN HOUSE within the supervisors....get supers that are leaders not just someone that kissed the right butts
