Pros

Company going through transition. New CEO, new CFO, new VP-HR... trying to find the path between how things were made 4 decades ago and "modern" managament. Good pay, average benefits. Good operations at the rigs.

Cons

Unclear carreer path. Not enough challenges. Lots of individual work, little team work. Not a learning culture, little/none training.

Advice to Management

If companies exists because of its people, make sure you make your employees grow with the company. Provide and support a learning culture. Let your employees understand the vision and the objectives of their function. Provide a carreer path.

    Pros

    Those that have been with the company for a while treat it as a family company, however those that are newer have a more political environment.

    Cons

    Getting away from a family feeling, stagnant company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the employees happy, keep more employees.

    Pros

    the pay is good, some of management is made up of good people

    Cons

    a lot of backstabbing and dishonesty, people climbing over other people, favoritism shown by management to family who also work there, incompetence and arrogance

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to do a construction project, don't manage that project with unqualified Parker employees just to keep it in the family, you wouldn't be getting sued by BP right now if you had left the construction of the AADU project to QUALIFIED management teams
