Pros

Plenty of opportunity to travel and the ability to direct your own career. Many of my work colleagues were friendly and encouraging.

Cons

The most disorganised company i've ever worked for. Almost zero communication between any of the sites or departments makes working completely impossible. Projects always poorly executed and never on time using the cheapest and oldest equipment. Poor/lazy process design = plenty of angry clients. This ends up costing the company a fortune in the long run just to save a few bucks in the short term. 1950s culture and terrible HR always trying to cover their own back. Everyone blames each other instead of trying to learn anything. All competent employees spend all their time cleaning up after everyone else that they have no time for anything else. As a company, Exterran has the potential to be so much more but they keep shooting themselves in the foot with silly mistakes that they really shouldn't be making.

Advice to Management

Fire yourselves; you are awful.

    Pros

    Established US and international market with local representative and service offices. Good products, good benefits.

    Cons

    Two major layoffs since 2009. Management still working on optimization of the structure and size. Currently is in downsizing process, which can last during 2015.

    Advice to Management

    International projects needs better quoting and scheduling. It was a good practice when a special team of experienced specialist were dealing with such projects.
