    Excellent compensation, benefits and training

    Drilling Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsExcellent pay, one of the highest starting salaries in the oil industry
    High level of respect between coworkers, very ethical and high moral standards
    Excellent training, both regarding the drilling field and general management
    Large amount of freedom to do extra training modules that are not requisite of the position

    Consvery strict rules, often good, but at times overbearing, such as not being able to work longer than specified work week without asking permission to work overtime.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReally can not think of much feedback, as I'm very happy with the company and work, only potential improvement would be in making it easier for junior employees to obtain international positions.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
