I worked at Scientific Drilling

Pros

Awesome pay! If you have worked in the oilfield you know what I mean! The problem is you don't get much time to spend it.

Cons

Honestly, everything about this job sucks, that is except for the pay. You live on the job site out in the middle of nowhere till the well is completed. That is not good for family life!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I don't know what to say here because Scientific Drilling is the only oilfield company I have ever worked for. Be that as it may, I think the management was fine.

    I worked at Scientific Drilling

    Pros

    There is huge room for advancement. Nobody can hack it there because you work 300+ days a year. THey dont pay all that well as compared to other service companies. Spend a few years there and then bounce. They are so short handed, it is unreal.

    Cons

    No life, no time off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your guys some set time off.

    Brilliant company to work for, although field work is not a lifetime career for most

    I worked at Scientific Drilling full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great work, lots of travel, were very loyal to staff (Minimal lay offs during down turn). Whilst behind SLB, Baker etc... in terms of technology it is progressing rapidly and should present aggressive and capable competition to lower budget operations e.g. land-based operations.

    Cons

    Lot of time away, short notice. Poor pay scaling system. Slight uncertainty among staff as to the longer term future but things do currently look good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good work.
