    Pros

    Great benefits, good 401k matching, able to use vacation when requested

    Cons

    They hire people to be supervisors that have never even worked in the industry before, they have no idea what's going on on the floor. They promise rewards that they don't deliver. If you are written up you can plan on being suspended no matter what the offense, even though you are supposed to get a verbal warning, then writin warning, then suspension.

  2. Grinding through the Growing Pains

    Pros

    Overtime opportunities are good when the Oil/Gas drilling cycle is up. Good technical learning opportunity and challenging work environment. Good long term growth of the company.

    Cons

    Middle management is not on the same page with Sr. management on strategic direction. Don't seek input from hourly or lower level salaried employees. Very little training on company culture or strategic plans.

    Advice to Management

    Look over your shoulder to be sure the organization is following you. Don't get too far out ahead of the rest of the troops. Continue strategic focus on oilfield equipment.
