    I have been working at Helmerich & Payne full-time (more than an 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 ManagementAdvice

    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).

    I have been working at Helmerich & Payne as a contractor

    Pros

    The company is growing, fast. Lots of good talent in their workforce. Opportunities to grow with the company.

    Cons

    Some of their management are very inexperienced and are more focused on personalities rather than personnel assets and creating an accessible, structured environment. Haphazard approach to processes and procedures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to work with your staff, utilize and develop their strengths. Don't dwell on the little things....focus on the big picture and establish enterprise structures for that growth.

    Former Employee - Summer-intern in Odessa, TX
    Former Employee - Summer-intern in Odessa, TX

    I worked at Helmerich & Payne as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The compensation is very competitive, and the technology that H&P uses makes it one the safest drilling companies in the world. I came out to the rig with no field experience and in 2 hitches was experienced enough to actually know what I was doing. It was a great way to learn how a rig works and make a ton of money over the summer!

    Cons

    Being away from your friends and family for 15 day stretches (1 day for driving) can be tough. Also the 12 hour long shifts in the hot sun with very limited breaks can also be tough.

    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.

    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.
