    Pros

    The job can be great depending on the manager. There are great growth opportunities and the leadership of the executive team is inspirational.

    Cons

    They are working on making the different departments better, and ensure that everyone aligns with the vision of the company. Excited to see the end result of the changes, but sometimes can be stressful going through the changes.

    Pros

    Good benefits, and plenty of room to grow and improve , and a good company to retire from. Lots of education given there.

    Cons

    Sometimes you spend a lot of time from home and its stressful for family and friends. Some positions you can not move up in your position because of lack of training and or education

    Advice to Management

    spend more time in field and actually learn more about your employees and give them what they deserve.

    Pros

    They tend to hire good people, at least at the lower levels. They treat you like human beings and can be understanding. The oilfield service work schedule is tough, but the managers seem to try to help you out. The pay with bonus is very good and may have some time at home when things are slow, but when things are busy, there can be a lot of driving and very little sleep, but my personal experience is that management will not push too hard if you say you are too tired and don't feel safe driving. The provide good training and there are lots of resources to learn as much as you can. Opportunities are available to move up or around the US or overseas.

    Cons

    can be very demanding schedule when things are busy, there are not a lot of career paths to get into a technical role, the work can be tedious. Can be difficult to move to another place, the local management will not allow you to leave without jumping through a lot of hoops or threatening to quit

    Advice to Management

    Just be understanding of hard schedules and allow people to move around to gain experience to benefit their career.
