Pros

week on week off schedule

Cons

wait until the last minute to evacuate for hurricanes

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start rigging down sooner for hurricanes, evacuate sooner so employees can tend to their homes and families. Keep more rigs working, provide more/better tools and equipment.

    Pros

    Flex time available. Payroll is knowledgeable. Legal has some good people. Help-desk is helpful. Compliance is watchful. Safety is a priority.

    Cons

    Stock price has not risen in years, everything senior management has tried seems to go south, raises and bonuses promised but not delivered in 2-3 years, starting salaries low. There seems to be a "If you don't like it, then leave mentality." Slim-to-no chance of promotion and no career path available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within instead of constantly bringing in new people. Chart out career paths and encourage everyone to educate themselves. Stop rewarding upper management for its inept decisions. Deliver on your promises or more good people will leave.
