Over worked and under paid

Quality Inspector (Current Employee)

I have been working at Smith International for more than 5 years

ProsOpportunities for overtime. This is a good place for a starter in the oil field

ConsPromotions are based on who you know rather than your knowledge and what you can bring to the table. Raises are a set amount for every individual so work ethic is irrelevant. Whether you learn new things or just do the bare minimum, everybody gets the same raise every six months.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in your work force and reward employees who go above and beyond the requirements. As things stand, there is no incentive for anyone to do better than the next guy.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
