    Used to be better

    Processing Geophysicist (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsCompany grew threefold over the last few years, now we are in a new location with nice interior, everything new, breakfast and lunch served, corporate membership in YMCA, etc. Computer resources are abundant.

    ConsMuch bigger job load, overtime is now required in order to be on time with projects, for the same salary. The bandwidth is not adequate and impedes the work. Many new people, some are not as qualified as old workers at the same grade, an extra layer of bosses to report. Remote location, open office setting, obscure management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInstead of spending your days in meetings, re-introduce the old practice of carrying on your very own processing project, i.e. re-connect with reality.

    Great for PT college students...everyone else hates it there.

    QA/Plot (Former Employee)
    Humble, TX

    ProsFlexibility, calm work environment, steady flow of work, steady paycheck

    ConsDepressing boredom at times, robots for coworkers, very little recognition for your efforts

    Advice to Senior ManagementRelax, the oil data will be there. Feel free to walk around and talk to your employees without hovering or bombarding them with questions. Stop being so damn robotic. Laugh a little.

    Also, is it impossible to provide any type of benefits for PT employees? I know Verizon Wireless offers profit-sharing for PT employees.

    Good company to work for if you are not overly ambitious.

    Processing Geophysicist (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsThey allow some flexibility with time as long as deadlines are met,
     good computing resources and responsive IT. There are no formal training, but there are a lot of information available for self-education. Project's reports and presentations are in common domain.

    ConsProjects are going through many departments, that means every department has a rather narrow specialization. No rotation, so it's difficult to get a wide experience. Work load is intermittent, some days I'm idle, some days I'm overwhelmed. Not much training given. Sometimes it feels like the management want you to be humble and invisible.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider rotation. Give more training and advancement opportunities.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A good learning experience.

    Data Processor (Current Employee)

    ProsVery flexible and understanding when time is needed to take off. A good place to learn about oil well logging. Future possibilities for more ways of doing business within all boundries of the oil & gas industry. Quarterly bonuses compensation. 401K matching, decent insurance.

    ConsLack of appreciation other than bonus compensation. Coworkers seem to compete in an unhealthy way. Redundant emails concerning specific requests. Mistakes are empasized as totall failure instead of learning oppurtunities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMuch potential, a simple good job and thank you would increase moral. Offer classes after a work shift, some may even suprise you and would participate for free. Encourage healthy networking and discourage gossip and ill treatment of others. There is much hope, just a few simple changes could make it better for all, and of course this in return would bring more success to the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
