    Cons

    Safety culture affected income at times

    I worked at Precision Drilling full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and good starting salary. Opportunities to learn on the job.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity after the first year. The culture is difficult - very Canadian oriented and carpetbagger mentality. The Canadians have mobility, the locals don't. Bad communication top down, and clickish. Top management make erratic decisions, or at least, not explainable. No buy-in from the staff is needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication and buy-in to develop more loyal employees and to retain good employees.

    Pros

    Schedule. Working with your brother hands.

    Cons

    Back stabbing management, no respect. Safe ethic on paper only. Company policies are garbage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new job. Especially Williamsport office.

    I worked at Precision Drilling full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Pay started out well, but structure changed 3 times in the 2 years i was employed there.

    Cons

    Everyone and i mean everyone is out for themselves. From new hires, to hr, to regional manager up. On paper, they train you. Classes are way more of a joke. They also put walking morons as operations managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Key beliefs? If you even think anyone.. ANYONE, practices these out in the field, maybe you should check into a nut house. I have no respect for you as you deserve none. This company is the most phony company i have ever worked for. I did not get fired. I am not a disgruntled ex employee. I just am telling it as it is.

    Pros

    The people you work with for the most part are really nice and willing to help. Management is always there to assist when you need them to.

    Cons

    There is no training. It's just get the position and good luck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training needs to be better for all office people. Not just those out at the rig.

    Good money, good health benefits, great team, lots of safety standards. Best drilling company.

    Cons

    Lots of hours, working out in the elements all year around, work holidays, birthdays, anniversaries. Miles and miles away from shopping, friends, and family for long periods at a time
