    Pros

    - Open door policy is a great way to meet and communicate with high-level managers - Instructor Led Training opportunities - Team rewards when working hard

    Cons

    - We don't receive much supervisor/manager feedback - High levels of harassment from coworkers - Some supervisors are ill placed - Not enough training on subject matter

    Advice to Management

    Ask for colleagues when promoting people, it feels like the wrong people are placed into supervisor positions

    Pros

    Great place to work. Oilfield has slowed down a lot but they let you work even when there is no work. Only 40 hrs guaranteed but they are doing there best.

    Cons

    None really seems like a loyal company going through a slow period

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you are doing. I know a lot of guys are not happy about hours but if business is slow business is slow.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits nice people within the company to work with

    Unpredictable work schedule you have co workers who act like they know how to do something but don't.

    Advice to Management

    Try being loyal to the ones that actually bust there behinds to get work done.

    Pros

    Some great employees, but not appreciated for their hard work!!!! If your lazy, you may love it...work is slow and I spent most my days on the internet doing non work related things...and they don't enforce being on time for work...many employees a use the lunch hour...making it a two lunch break and no one says a thing...it's an easy paycheck

    Cons

    Many cons...low pay...no room for advancement unless you kiss up to upper mgmt....low employee morale...upper mgmt. is secretive and doesn't keep employees informed of organizational changes to the last minute...not much work to do and you can forget about learning more about the industry, they don't cross train much...and 401k was matched, now taken away...benefits are expensive for a family...don't waste your time at this dead end job!!

    Advice to Management

    Change your upper mgmt. Pertrillo has ruined this place...your losing good people and rewarding those that suck up and lazy!!!

    Pros

    Office workers have good work/life balance. Some of the people are good to work with. Pay is decent. Safety culture is being spread and helps keep field workers safe.

    Cons

    Reorg is causing massive problems. Communication is slow. Upper management lacks direction and tends to make poor decisions. This can be seen in both the earnings and the stock price. Support organizations within corporate do a poor job at supporting business profitability. This leads to general dissatisfaction of both customers and corporate employees. IT is the worst.

    Advice to Management

    Look at shared services and find out how to improve the culture there to actually serve the business. Continue to try to become a "real company" and not a shoestring budget organization.
