    Unprofessional Company - not a place for good professionals who want to excel. Very weak management.

    Pros

    Initial compensation to attract best talent very good and among the best in the industry. There is nothing else good about the company.

    Cons

    Performance reviews never performed and there is no communication. Nepotism is company policy. Fights among top management transparent for all to see. Qualified personnel not given the chance to shine. Employees that resign are not compensated in a timely fashion. Ploys are hatched to with hold their vacation pays and final wages.
    Company does not respond to complaints. Constructive recommendations is taken as a personal affront and not considered with an open mind from a professional standpoint,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since company is in transition and not looking to be around for the long haul. No advice would be necessary.

    Pros

    If you are a relative or former coworker that came to work at Frontier you will be paid more in salary and bonuses and stock options than you would have ever thought of earning.

    Cons

    If you are not related or a previous friend or former coworker you will never go anywhere in the company and you will not get salary increases or yearly bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Frontier Drilling Management should be fair to all employees and not just the chosen few with salaries and bonuses. The joke there is that if you mess up bad enough you get promoted and paid more.

    Backbiting

    Pros

    Great benefits. HR department has really improved.

    Cons

    Management allows back-biting and confrontations in departments without consequences. Disgruntled employees are told to 'deal with it' because the aggressor is 'needed' in the company. Requests for teamwork workshop attendance are denied. Management hires outside instead of giving the opportunity for current employee advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rethink your teamwork strategies.

    Pros

    Hope for career Advancement.
    Compensation on of the best in the industry.

    Cons

    Lack of Communication. No clear career path seen. Long term cooperate strategy in question. Management have sold companies in the past. They start a company get it profitable , sell and pocket the proceeds.
    Present sentiment among current staff is just work for the moment and exploit opportunities as it arises.
    People work there not by merit but by who they know. Office romantic activities going on without any discouragement much to the disgruntle of most employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Frontier can Improve and could be very prospective.
