    Pros

    Senior Management, HR very supportive of career growth opportunities, especially if you ask for it. Great people, atmosphere and potential. Hours are great.

    Cons

    Balance of being a 'dumb iron' company and developing new products sometimes challenging, thought that's par for the course for oilfield services with large fleets.

    I have been working at Savanna Energy Services full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    During my two years with Savanna I feel that the executives are down-to-earth, caring people who want the company to be successful for more than just financial incentives. I'm also very pleased to have company values that are regularly discussed and referenced when making difficult decisions. I know I can expect colleagues to act in accordance with those values and uphold that standard.

    Cons

    Savanna has had some growth pains as it aims to become an industry leader. Like any company that has grown like Savanna has there are always challenges in establishing and streamlining processes that work well. Inefficiencies are often frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain and develop transparency to employees in both the office and the field so they can all appreciate your genuine concern for the people that make up Savanna.
