    I worked at Forum Oilfield full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Forum was an excellent company to work. The management was always very open with employees and were there to lend a helping hand when needed. All employees worked well across division lines, worked as a team and were very respective of ours. Wish I was still there.

    Cons

    Fairly long hours dealing with overseas clients due to time differences. Very fast pass and many short deadlines required by the clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you do.

    Pros

    Good insurance and benefits. Other that that there is not much else good to say.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of the employee you have give bonuses not just top executives we all work hard for the company - Please slow down and focus on perfecting the companies by making sure everyone knows what to do where the company is going. Also assist with organizing departments and employee roles.
