    Pros

    The checks did not bounce.

    Cons

    If you are not from Argentina or of Hispanic origin, be ready to be treated as a second class citizen. Management org chart is organized completely along lines of national origin. Argentina at top, then Spanish speakers, then everyone else. HR tolerates bullying management. Lawsuit waiting to happen.

    Pros

    -safe -good 401k -decent insurance -TIIP bonus(especially good if you are getting overtime) -decent pay -able to take classes

    Cons

    -poor management(depending on department) -scheduling and planning issues -emergency crew does not help regular maintenance even on an emergency breakdown(I've been called out of bed to come in and fix a break down. What is the purpose of an emergency crew?)

    Advice to Management

    Stick to a schedule and do not change the PM and maintenance of your machines every day or two. You cannot plan properly to fix machinery and have parts/ tools ready when the PM date is changed a few times a week or even two or three times a day.

    Pros

    Great training programs and courses available that look great to other oil and gas companies.
    Friendly work environment.
    Easily the industry leader, both in reputation and financially.
    Company is strategic and makes smart big picture decisions.
    International travel is sometimes possible for training.

    Cons

    Work life balance has been the #1 ranked employee complaint (via Employee Survey).
    Low pay for the industry that everyone openly acknowledges and complains about (#2 complaint).
    Turnover has been a problem because of the above reasons.
    Upper management is all Argentine. No effort or attempts to balance this out.
    Very few women, especially when you get to higher level positions.
    Rigid bureaucracy to get anything accomplished (most approvals, for software, raises, hiring, etc..., must go through Argentina).

    Advice to Management

    At least pay your employees the industry average. Don't be surprised when they leave for more money.
    Do not require approvals to go through other countries.
    Do not treat your lower level employees as expendable and easily replaceable.
