Pros

Great company in innovation and technology development.

Cons

Poor leadership vision; constantly shifting initiatives and focus just for the sake of change.

Advice to Management

Listen to your mid-management, develop and promote people base on their merits not on how well they play the political game.

    Make and save your money during peak demand, laid off when demand slacks.

    Pros

    Challenging job, operating and repairing expensive instrumentation that is put thousands of feet down a well hole. Pay is ok, overtime almost always happens when demand is high.

    Cons

    When demand drops, the company drops people FAST. I do not blame them for wanting to keep the most experienced personnel. However, they have become a company full of old men, making a huge gap between them and the rookies, as they keep laying off the latest group to get a couple years under their belt. Don't trust the company executives.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a blend of people with various experience levels in order to keep a steady flow every year of experienced people that the customers will respect.
