Floorhand (Former Employee)
Roosevelt, UT

I worked at Frontier Drilling full-time for less than a year

Prosgood pay insurance is good

Consaccounting is rude still waiting on bottom hole bonuses that are due and they are all trained to say we dont know when they come in we pay when we get them.

Advice to Senior Managementpay wait is owed to employees thats all there is to it or let the companies that contract you know they need to pay the money you guys owe me and my crew rig 19 about $6000 in bottom hole

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

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

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Frontier Drilling

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

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Unfair Workplace

Office Assistant (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Frontier Drilling

ProsIf 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.

ConsIf 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 Senior ManagementFrontier 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Frontier can Improve and be as good as Transocean.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Frontier Drilling

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

ConsLack 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 Senior ManagementFrontier can Improve and could be very prospective.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Backbiting

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Frontier Drilling

ProsGreat benefits. HR department has really improved.

ConsManagement 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 Senior ManagementRethink your teamwork strategies.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good place to work...no where to move up.

Senior Accountant (Current Employee)

I have been working at Frontier Drilling

ProsMy direct boss is very good to work for...they respect my personal time and give consistent constructive feedback on my work.

ConsThis is not a lot of room for upward mobility as well as no upward feedback. The formal review process takes forever to complete if it even gets completed.

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate to the staff the motives of the Company. There is not the most clear picture of where this company is going or if it is going anywhere.
