    New people in key positions making positive changes. Company is good to the employees and has a relaxed environment, where we can have fun and still get the work done.

    Cons

    Company doesn't always understand what value some of their employees can add and limits career growth of those employees as a result. Company doesn't pay as well as others in the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the contributions your employees can make and promote them to the appropriate roles for their expertise and experience and pay them accordingly for the value they will be providing in those roles.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
