    Pros

    I enjoyed the schedule and the employee stock purchase plan. The benefits were in general above average.

    Cons

    You are always on-call. 24/7/365. I worked on Christmas the all 3 years of employment.

    Advice to Management

    The good ol' boys club for promotion needs to disappear. Promotions are not based on merit.

    There is some politics in the company. If oil/gas market goes down there is some chance that you could be laid off.

    Managers should clearly communicate to their employees what the job expectations are and where they want their employees to be in the near and far future

    Work 14 on 7 off. Good pay as long as oil is up. Decent benefits and mostly good people to work with.

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to move around. The benifits are just as good as any place I've seen. These guys are everywhere

    Cons

    Getting noticed is rough. The HR department isn't really accessible. It's like pulling teeth with them. A pension plan could bring more life to the company seeing how the competitors have one.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to hold people down. If someone is trying to better themselves, it should be recognized not ignored. Thank you
