Not much benefits package, career perspective is not as good as comparing other big oil and gas companies, don't develop your skills and competences

More time for employee training and development, give attention to internal PR, motivation of employees with benefits and extra activities

    I have been working at Lufkin Industries as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    The people that you work with are in some cases very helpful. The town is quiet and people keep to themselves, if you like to stay to yourself, this is the area for you.

    Cons

    Management does not seem to care about their hourly workers, and they play favorites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set an attainable standard and hold it, and take care of the hourly workers because they are the ones doing the work that is making the money for the company.

    I worked at Lufkin Industries full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It's a paycheck and sales orders are increasing!

    Cons

    You're treated like slave labor. This is now a GE company and I expected a lot more from them. All your employees make more than you do. No training, sink or swim mentality. No communication from the top to the lowest level or from department to department. You work seven days a week, 60 to 80 hours as a salary employee (no overtime). Cronyism and good ole' boy network is deeply entrenched and if you didn't grow up in the area, they do everything possible to back stab and keep you down. The Lufkin culture makes a mockery of the GE mantra of Integrity, Quality and Execution. If you're a Military Hire stay away!! It's the opposite work ethic that you ever learned in the military!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want quality Supervisors and Managers, you need to pay and invest in their training. Your lack of pay and training only shows how much you care about their future. If you want to make this company to succeed you need to seriously evaluate the management that has been there more than five years.
