GeoTech (Former Employee)
McAllen, TX

ProsGreat workplace environment, smart and able employees and managers. Upper level managment has understanding of geologic and engineering issues making communication easy. Very personable people to work with.

ConsCommunication between field office and main office in Houston was slow sometimes. Occasionally took a day or two to receive further instruction after finishing specified assignment.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to advance employees with science backgrounds and understanding of the science behind drilling.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
