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

    Pros

    Very friendly, family oriented environment. The co workers were great and people did their job without too much complaint.

    Cons

    They cut our pay, hired the wrong people, and the buddy-buddy system became common

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure that managers who show favoritism are corrected. It destroys morale and drive when managers friends are hired and given preferred treatment over those who had been there longer.

    I worked at Superior Energy full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    the drivers are good guys and you can work a fair amount of overtime and not be bothered

    Cons

    the manager at the Macedon facility where I worked was a lunatic and would yell, scream and throw things whenever it popped in his head to do so.

    I worked at Superior Energy full-time (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 worked at Superior Energy as a contractor (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.
