I have been working at Exterran

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 ManagementAdvice

Fire yourselves; you are awful.

    Pros

    Great company, great people. If you work hard, there will be always a person from management team to notice your effort. Work schedule can be adjusted to fit your needs. Opportunity is always there as long as you put an effort to achieve your goals and dreams. People are very friendly. Company participates in a lot of public events.

    Cons

    There will be always a person or a group of people complaining about things with no solid reason, which kind of annoying and affects rest of the team performance. Not sure if there is something can be done about that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to keep good people in the company as hard as you can so they will not pursue another job opportunity just because of slightly higher paycheck.

    Great place to learn about the industry, most of the people are really great to work with, flexible with time off.

    Work load is very high in regards to compensation, expectations to constantly drive performance with out the company willingness to back up employees.
