I worked at Parker Drilling full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Good company with friendly employees. Very trusting in the ability of their people. Decent compensation and benefits, Rotation is standard.

Cons

Tend to put the cart before the horse and I don't think that some of the people put as much into work as they should on behalf of the employees.

Keep your people happy

    Pros

    NONE that I can think of

    Cons

    Pathetic leadership, Human Resources team is worthless, old equipment, lack of safety concerns for its employees, no one is a long term employee any longer, below average pay, below average benefits, payroll cant get checks right, you can be told in country you have been promoted but never see a pay adjustment as promised and if you do, its nothing but attitude form the so called HR payroll group.

    Pros

    Parker Drilling has a long history, but it feels like a place where even new employees can help to make a big difference in the way business is done. If you are willing to work, and you care about your results, you can go far in this company.

    Cons

    Not as many corporate events as I would like where employees can blow off steam and get to know each other outside the office.
