Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
Approves of CEO

Pros

Like a family Most employees aren't expected to work more than their 40 hour work week Flexible office hours in Houston

Cons

Little room for growth Changes in the way the company does things are extremely difficult to implement The overall professionalism of the company is low (still a lot leftover from the "mom & pop" days)

Advice to Management

It's not high school, there's no need for the "cool kids" to push the others down. If the company has failed in several locations and certain people were involved with each location...maybe it's time to cut the cord.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    A small company with a family feeling but no family love.

    Cons

    Senior Management gets raises but not the little people. The little people are given excuses as why a raise is not foreseeable for the third year in a row yet Sr. Management receives bonuses and raises. No room for growth since Parker is such a small company. The only promotion you would receive would be your Managers job and they are in fear of losing their's so there's definitely no rooom for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Stop forming cliques and treat everyone as equals instead of step-children.

    wait until the last minute to evacuate for hurricanes

    Advice to Management

    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.
