    Pros

    Great Pay
    Best benefits anywhere, 8% match 401k regardless of contribution, health dental and vision paid for by company
    Pay for travel to and from rig
    21 on 21 off

    Cons

    Office has seemed to lose hold of what it is to work on a rig
    Turn around on the rigs means quick promotions but alot of work due to open positions
    Oil prices have fallen and company is not dealing with lays off in a professional manner

    Advice to Management

    Remember how you made it to your spot. Alot of us below you see yourself only working to get bonuses for you. Keep everyone who works on the rig and makes sure your life is easy by working efficiently and safely in mind instead of yourself.
