I have been working at Key Energy Services

Pros

-Gives you a paycheck and sometimes a bonus.
-Can work with some interesting technology
-Management does provide some schedule flexibility and time off for family emergencies

Cons

-If there is a vision, management has never articulated it
-Will not pay for equipment replacement, even if broken
-People always seem to be the first cut unlike unnecessary expenses such as management's travel
-Company's bureaucracy makes the Federal government look efficient
-Company will lie about insurance and leave the employee hanging
-No advancement unless you are in management's graces
-No performance reviews
-Employees tend to have anger issues. Will yell at other employees over minor events
-Senior management treated significantly different than regular employees
-Morale is overall low, and management will not address it
-Practically no job security
-Very little training
-Managers do not discuss career plans with the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Articulate some sort of vision. The company is basically floundering, and senior management will not address it. Don't let rumors float around. They have sapped a significant amount of morale. Be honest and direct with employees.

    Pros

    Good benefits but will cut at will. only reason i m still around is my rig pusher. Seems to be somewhat Christian oreantated

    Cons

    My experience with key is that they are promoting who you know instead of experience at lest in west texas. LIke weeding out the old school people who know well servicing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take closer look at old school safety minded hand instead of who can bring you work or money to company. I ve worked for key 7 years had only 2 f o r accidents only and my reward have been 2 hat and no x mas bounes. not even an atta boy other then rig pusher management ......
