    Pros

    not many pros at all. Can't think of one at this moment.

    Cons

    Won't hire contractors until a year of employment. Management does not care to hear the facts about certain higher ups going way over budget on items and then hiding the fact. Just not nice people. But I am sure they caught on recently, that is why they have had to cut back so much lately. Very political and sad atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to people, not just your direct reports.

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay. Flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Management does not understand anything of what is really going on. They hire a bunch of high level individuals who get paid to do practically nothing and expect those with less experience to know much more. Everything seems backwards there. Not to mention that if you are not part of their in group you will not advance there.

    Advice to Management

    Learn your job and actually make a difference.

    - Diverse assets with unbounded opportunities. - Overall great talented co-workers

    Cons

    - Good Ole boys club mentality, especially in the drilling department - Out of touch Executives that turn the cheek when workers point out obvious abuse of management. - Heavily relied on contractors vs. employees.

    Advice to Management

    - Restructure the entire organization. - Identify poor managers and replace them immediately. - Listen to the needs of your young engineers, they are the future NOT the contractors.

    Pros

    Wonderful people to work with. Project teams are very supportive and knowledgable. Great benefits..both benefit package and benefits at work (like gym in the office).

    Cons

    Limited room for advancement. Managers seem to make promises that they cannot keep. Executive Management is not involved and seems clueless. Nothing comes from the top down. Everything is from middle management out. Lack of communication between departments creates silos and multiple people working on same initiative in parallel. They need to wake up that they are no longer a mom and pop shop from Ardmore Oklahoma.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with employees. The minute you find out you can't keep a promise, tell the employees. Create better work life balance. A few people seem to do all the work. Respect people's talents and don't preach you want out of the box thinking while you confine individuals to a mold. Stop talking about how the company has no money...get rid of the biggest money waster-GAP!

    Pros

    They pay very well - at least the part they don't take back when they dump you.

    Cons

    Third world management skills trying to compete in a first world game. Locker room mentality and 7th grade politics will take this company to it's knees. Grandma will soon learn that these yahoos are not the place to park her hard earned retirement money and down the house of cards shall come.

    Advice to Management

    Evolve, grow up, this is not a popularity contest. Oh yeah, I think the day of kings killing their strongest sons have passed.....oh say, a few hundred years ago. But go ahead and keep the flow of 'I-just-shaved-for-the-first-time' staff coming in the door....they won't even notice your monumental incompetence.
