    I worked at Superior Energy as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, work environment. Office space was very nice and the company provided Monday lunch was a great perk.

    Cons

    Some managers seem to not know their jobs. Company policies are not handed down and certain information has to be found on your own and sometimes by surprise

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the on boarding of new hires. Ensure that persons that are put into management positions have experience and can do the jobs of those that they are to manage.

    I worked at Superior Energy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Superior has many great people working there. Sometimes there is an annual salary bonus but not always.

    Cons

    Managers are often abusive and lack experience and training. IT group has no direction where it is headed. The level of incompetence and negligence within the IT group is sad. The company looks like it is going to be purchased by Halliburton and I feel sorry for the people that will be fired as a result.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why do most people leave the IT dept. after 6 months? Does anyone even care? It's like working at McDonalds. Senior management is obsessed with getting purchased by a large company so they can all retire wealthier than they already are. Moral is very low and no one cares.

    I have been working at Superior Energy full-time

    Pros

    maybe slightly above average wages

    Cons

    very expensive benefits Health Insurance for a $1000 deductible is $330 per month. That means that your wage is reduced over $2/hour . Obama-Care is cheaper for the same coverage and most other energy field employers are under $100 per month.

    Current Employee - Assistant District Service Manager in Yancey, TX

    I have been working at Superior Energy full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    For the workers there is usually at least 60+ hours a week to work. The work trains you enough to allow you to work elsewhere. H2S, DD4, First Aid and SafeLand is always required - also allows ability to laterally transfer, liberally which allows one to slip out to another department if your is not working very well. Comms is expanding rapidly and is working fairly well.

    Cons

    20 years behind in computing and employee to employee communication technology - very poor advisors for employee tech. Computer techs are small minded/short sighted, hiring is handled very well by 3rd party but it is SLOW, does not allow for rapid reactions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No comment, Superior Energy is cleaning house as needed - and it's needed.

    I have been working at Superior Energy full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None that I have seen so far.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no training program. The current manager is a micro managing old school dimwit who lives in the 70's. The management has no clue what to do or how to take care of its employees. No matter how good or bad you may be, you are treated indifferently. The management will throw you where your services are unnecessary and completely thankless about it. There is so much interdepartmental hatred, it is not even funny. Field engineers are the least respected or cared individuals in this company. Beware ! Oh by the way all this for the lowest pay among any service companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit and let the people with modern ideas and knowledge of computers to run the business. The field engineers are the management of tomorrow, show them some respect and take care of them. If not, get ready for a high attrition rate in the near future !

    Pros

    The manager has a funny story about a cucumber that everyone seems to talk about... other than that none.

    Cons

    Everyone is quitting, took bonuses, no incentives to work over, have to beg to rises and when you do it is "crap" , seems that you have to be in the "click" to stay working... the whole buddy buddy thing is horrible, they give you sick/personal days but at the same time tell you can't take them just anytime you want ... same goes for vacation ( like trying to put some vacation time on a week that you haven't worked much.. and the biggest thing ... they act like your best friend when you are around and if you not in their little "click" they talk behind your back ( and not work related) . Myself, I am not there to make friends, I am there to work and do my job. Seems they have a problem with that!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to completely rethink how you treat employees
