    Poor management and hard work is not acknowledged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To hire with managerial experience.

    Pros

    Great coworkers
    Good benefits
    Good salary (competitive, at least for managers)

    Cons

    Management just started paying dividends...and then laid off employees. Communication is poor and they are out of touch with the people who do the real work of the company. They are only concerned about shareholders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Layoffs every other year do not project a stable company to shareholders or anyone else. There is a lot of waste that could be cut to reduce expenses, but you need to ask the people that know - non-managerial employees. Go beyond the VPs to get more insight into your company.

    I have been working at Tesco Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Mostly good, knowledgeable people to work with. Decent benefits for a manufacturing company.

    Cons

    Lack of communication across different departments. Even though they claim otherwise, management is unwilling to change and adapt to new ideas. Some processes can be simplified to help things get done quicker and more efficiently. Too many unrealistic promises made to customers by management and salesforce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be more engaged with their employees and better understand their needs. Communication needs to be better. Need stronger, transparent leadership that isn't afraid to admit their mistakes (hello ESI-1000, Catwalks).

    I have been working at Tesco Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Pay is competitive within oil and gas industry and benefits are good.

    It is very easy to get promoted within 2-3 years, sometimes even less.

    Company is very safety conscious.

    Cons

    Lots of processes to get anything done thus making one's work harder than it actually is.

    Turnover rate is relatively high within company, thus promotions are due to back-filling. This leads to people not being experienced with their job.

    Lack of communications between different departments.

    Lack of training within organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less micromanaging and processes. Need to retain and develop current employees rather than constantly hiring new ones.

    "Red Flag"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Tesco Corporation

    Pros

    Great Pay for similiar jobs at other companies
    Benefits are good
    Lots of options to move around the company because of back filling all the people that leave, people move around all the time and never do the same job very long...this is also a con because no one really masters what they are doing.
    Good Social Responsibility, lots of options to volunteer
    Focus on healthy living, gym available, fitness classes, etc.

    Cons

    No work/life balance, it is hard to take any of the vacation they give you.

    TURNOVER: should have been a huge red flag to me. No one stays here more than 2-3 years, if that. Some new people are around from growth, but the large majority are from filling all the people that quit. So many people leave every week, most folks are numb to the news that someone left.

    Horrible communication. It is almost impossible to get help or information from anyone. Everyone is too busy. On a personal note, the social communication is next to nothing. No one knows anything about each other's personal lives/situation...they don't care, no one talks to each other at the office, not many people go to lunch together. It is a weird office dynamic in that regard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop being so immune to bad managers that do not have any leadership capabilities. Need to focus on retaining employees, rather than a constant revolving door!

    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.
