    Pros

    Take care of all your equipment, gives out performance awards
    Great benefits with ability to make above average oilfield money
    So many people have advanced up the ranks, opportunities in many different countries

    Cons

    Management tends to have a lack of experience but are always trying their best

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help new management with proper training and a hands on approach rather than the set up for failure approach

    I worked at Tesco Corporation part-time

    Pros

    During my time at Tesco I enjoyed my coworker's presence. The atmosphere is extremely friendly and if you need help anyone in any department is wiling to help you out.

    Cons

    Sometimes communication is a bit fuzzy between departments and it takes awhile to get some things done unless a lot of upper management gets on people to do something.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on strengthening communication and emphasizing main goals

    Pros

    Flexibility and pay are very good for most people in the Corporate office.

    Cons

    Vacation is discouraged and there is a serious lack of leadership and accountability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold managers accountable and show them how to hold their subordinates accountable. There is no such thing as "too much" communication.

    I have been working at Tesco Corporation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The environment is very easy going and the managers are very understanding
    Coworkers are nice and are very realistic when it comes to decision making
    The people are knowledgable and willing to help if you don't understand or are still learning

    Cons

    In comparison to industry standards, the pay is within the 15th percentile.
    We're always overloaded. 9 hour days at least. Compensation for extra hours is non-existent/minimal.
    Compared to industry, the benefits aren't amazing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    invest in your employees

    Pros

    Knowledgeable technicians and flexible work schedule. I enjoyed working in the field with no supervision and being trusted to complete tasks with trust. Pay is very competitive.

    Cons

    Business is very up and down meaning you never know when you might have long periods of time with no work or pay. Training is still being developed and not up to par with the demands of the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on sustaining the company and less on developing different services that technicians have little or no knowledge of.

    People are generally nice. There are maybe some annoying people but not many.
