    Pros

    Great benefits, friendly co-workers, decent pay, even better job security. It's relatively organized and the mentor system is great. It's very easy to get help when you need it and everyone is always looking out for each other. It's overall a very safe place to work

    Cons

    Long work hours, isolation, limited communication when on locations due to poor signal receiption. The weather can be extreme sometimes -hot and cold depending on what location you work at.

    Advice to Management

    Better signal boosters to increase cell phone and data coverage in rural areas. Cooling vests when working in 100 degree weather.

    Pros

    I moved up to an office job from the working at rigs. Was in a small, new department which all four of us helped develop. Very interesting work learning new software and applying to real-world situations for clients. Great pay and benefits too.

    Cons

    It can sometimes be difficult to get moved from one job function to another depending on your manager and his/her resistance to letting you branch out and expand yourself (this is in regards to my position prior to the log analyst position).

    Advice to Management

    Recognize when an employee wishes to move on and help them rather than hinder them; that just creates frustration and anger towards the company overall.

    Good products. Good benefits and retirement.

    Cons

    Large company. Preaches accountability but does not practice it.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on top of lower tier management to push their business and try to take the emotional decisions out.

    Pros

    Good pay, good people, positive work environment, modern facilities, a lot of autonomy, international scope, access to information needed to do the job.

    Cons

    Sensitivity to fluctuations in the oil and gas market, a somewhat tarnished reputation based on huge government contracts, not as technologically advanced administratively as might be expected despite having leading edge systerms.

    Advice to Management

    Do some benchmarking regarding best-in-class companies, provide more secure channels for employee commentary, go overboard building and maintaining a positive corporate image.
