Pros

Top performers get promoted quickly. There is a rotation program so you won't get stuck at a bad site for too long. Good benefits. Some senior staff members are excellent. Company is extremely profitable at the moment.

Cons

Salaries are lacking. 50/50 split of good or bad middle managers, which can make or break your experience and opportunities. Not enough engineers and high turn over rate means most people are overloaded.

Advice to Management

Hire more engineers! There are more projects than ever at most sites, its time to hire people to get them done right.

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits and overtime prior to upcoming turnaround

    Cons

    Cut throat operators, 'old timers' don't like change, management is not in touch with reality of unit, training is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    create a functional training program and have it implemented for everyone, not have 5 different ways of doing things.
