    I have been working at Helmerich & Payne full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Time off and the pay is nice.

    Cons

    Too much of a family and friends click and gossip goes on too much. Sometimes the supervision doesn't always go by the rules which frustrates me to no end. There is a lot of hypocrisy that goes on.

    Advice to Management

    When something is said don't go back on it and don't pick when to go by the rules and procedures and when someone lower than you in position suggests something, or about safety don't let your self pride get in the way of a better idea or your and everyone safety. That's what stops company growth and what kills people (SELF PRIDE).

    Pros

    Always have top of the line machinery and equipment. A few great co-workers became like family to me.

    Cons

    Safety regulations make it impossible to do the job the right way. There are so many steps involved with safety, you spend more time doing paperwork and JSA than actually doing the work. If you follow the safety procedures, it seems like everyone hates you. If you have a lazy person on your rig, he will be the first to get promoted, simply to get him off of your rig. Then, that person is replaced with another lazy person that came from another rig because they wanted to get rid of him.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify safety procedures. Some JSA's are a joke and it literally takes an hour to read them. Get to know your crews. Show up to the rigs a little more often so you can know who's doing a good job and who isn't rather than simply going by what your rig manager tells you.

    Pros

    The hours are good. AVERAGE 90 hrs. A week. Company truck. Expenses paid. All tools and cloths bought for you. 100,000.00+ a year starting pay. One of the hardest electrical jobs to have. You work on your own..

    Cons

    The hours are good. Lots of driving. To much favoritism. On call 24/7. No vacation. Miss out on holidays and family functions. One of the hardest electrical jobs to have.

    Advice to Management

    To much favoritism and the employees don't get treated fairly.

    Pros

    Helmerich & Payne is a great company that is flexible and strong. The values and culture of Helmerich & Payne make it a great company to work for.

    Cons

    There seems to be limited opportunity for career expansion. Most departments tend to be fairly lateral and flat with limited growth opportunities within the company.
