    Revenue Accountant

    Revenue Accountant (Former Employee) Midland, TX

    ProsBenefits, people, the family environment, and everything that's done to help community out wherever you work. Middle management was always willing to help out

    ConsSome ppl felt they were paid low in their base salary but the bonus and stock incentive definitely made up for the difference

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work

    Excellent Company to work for, w/ a positive attitude

    Drill Site Manager (Current Employee) Midland, TX

    ProsVery Professional, safety attitudes, & Team Players,

    ConsNot really no Cons, except. sometime lack of hand over notes.

    Advice to Senior Managementneed to let personal of lay offs before you just drop the ball on them, and why are you laying off people that are doing the correct work, and the other ones, that are not doing the work,
    Like me, I attended every safety meeting, on Rig # 224, and the day personal never attended a single 1.
    Check the Sidewinder safety sheets.

    “looks good on paper”

    Geoscientist (Current Employee) Irving, TX

    ProsPay, Some very smart individuals working to merge technical ability with economic outcomes, Permian Basin asset and a Denver office. Work-life-balance and work environment can be tremendous, depending on department and middle-management. There are some very high quality managers in the company who are exceptional at navigating corporate chaff and maintaining focus on long term goals.

    ConsManagement drives many inefficiencies and has a very top-down approach to career development. This heavily influences opportunities for career growth. Department specific tendency for some to become protective of their "areas of expertise". Increasingly uniform academic diversity. Communication within this company is exceptionally poor with some exceptions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAutocratic perspectives and micromanagement abound. Take a bit more laissez faire approach and let your employees show you what they can do rather than dictate what they will do, and worst, what they are to discover.

    Growing company that appreciates its employees and values cooperation while still encouraging intelligent risk-taking.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsProvides plenty of training opportunities and supports employees who want to further their education at night. Flexible work schedule, good benefits package including employee stock purchase plan, 401(k) matching, and bonuses.

    ConsWhen the price of oil fluctuates, projects can be shelved quickly, making for a very dynamic environment for planning. Uses a lot of contractors for areas outside of their main expertise which can provide unique challenges for support teams.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDoing a good job, keep it up.
