Pros

Good Pay, better people. Money is good depending on the hours you work. The people that work here are second to none. Most are always willing to show you how to do a specific task properly.

Cons

Extended periods of time away from home. Weeks, months and sometimes several months away can give the family left at home a sense of detachment.

Advice to Management

On jobs that will be 30 days or longer, offer to fly a spouse or loved one out to the location. This would boost moral on extended stays away from them and may even save a marriage or two.

    Pros

    The people that you work with, are great people

    Cons

    You don't get anywhere, even with promises. Dresser paid for me to get my Bachelor's degree, and I'm still at an entry level position, as an Administrative Assistant I.


  2. Typical US Public Company, some great things, some you wish you could change

    Pros

    Exciting work, military contracts have added stability. More than fair in compensation in a region where there are not many options

    Cons

    Painfully low rate of reinvestment. Almost no progressive capital investing.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a strategy that is simple and direct. Commit and invest. Quit doing the rest and stop trying to do everything.
