    Pros

    Good company, great benefits.

    Cons

    You're a number when your performance is based off of metrics that are controlled by your peers.

    Advice to Management

    Don't overlook the people who are true assets for the company. Very political, if you are not roving shoulders with your manager you will not make it.

    Pros

    Provided numerous opportunities to learn and expand skills and experience in a large data center. Ideas were exchanged openly and there was good team work

    Cons

    Senior management was definitely focused on the bottom line and implemented layoffs with little respect for the affected employees.

    Pros

    The company is constantly promoting from within, however you have to know the right people in order to get the opportunities.

    Cons

    The management does not embrace change specially using automation that could increase efficiency and decreased overall cost. They do not have standardized processes across their portfolios making it hard to see if their reports are accurate or if they have been modified.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to more people other than just your managers, some managers don't appreciate the fact automation can decrease the work load for your personnel. They don’t have to stay late in order to get all their work done if they are able to use tools designed to gather data and provide it into a report that provides information.

    Pros

    Good Pay, great location, generally good people, and a fun business with cool technologies.

    Cons

    Directors are horrible, lack leadership and generally in it for themselves only. Professional development is non-existent. General hire external instead of from within.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your people. There are great, talented people "wandering" and/or frustrated with the lack of direction and care.

    Pros

    Fair wage, good benefits, amenable work environment

    Cons

    A drop in oil prices makes everyone in the oil industry nervous, and the ripples are felt all the way down to the companies that supply the equipment...like FMC Schilling. 59 people were laid off.

    Pros

    Good salary Most of the people are nice to work with

    Cons

    While most of the workers are nice, the directors and VP's are horrible. Loads of polictics. They operate like construction workers mentality counting hours rather than productivity. Some people have a lot of decision making authroity with no checks and balances.

    Advice to Management

    You should define a career path for people to grow and empower them to make decisions.
