Good place to start a career

R&D Engineer (Former Employee) Houston, TX

ProsPathFinder (before acquisition by Smith and later by Schlumberger) used to have a very positive R&D environment. Management was committed to attracting and retaining talents and the compensation package showed. There was minimal bureaucracy. Management process was kept personable. People were friendly and satisfied.

ConsAt times engineers might feel they were held too tightly to tried-and-true methodology. Also, being a "small" company ("small" compared to Schlumberger, Baker Hughes, or Halliburton) with no more than a few new projects at a time, sometimes staffing was underutilized.

Advice to Senior ManagementCome up with longer term technology plan to utilize your talents and afford them more freedom. Give them more feedback and engage them more into thinking more about their own career development path.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
