    Pros

    Decent Pay
    Awesome Benefits
    Mostly Friendly People

    Cons

    Communication within management is horrible. At times, I didn't know who my boss was because I had several people telling how to do my job. The job itself was easy, but the paperwork and lack of common sense decisions made the job way harder than it has to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have management training available before promoting a person to manager. Promote better communication between management and field personnel. Sometimes it easier to get things accomplished with less hand in the cookie jar.

    Pros

    The best training in the oilfield service industry. Will train you to be the very best in a particular service and give you a very good understanding of all the workings of the upstream side of the oil & gas industry.

    Cons

    There is not much of a work life balance. The culture of the company expects you to place work above all else. The average work week for a field engineer is around 80 hours.
